Tips to Save Time & Money
at Disney World – Part 2
Talk About Photos with the Kids
If you have little ones that are not always excited to pose for a photo, speak with them before the trip about using photopass photographers and posing at Disney World for family photos. A willing and responsive group of kids is the key to snagging family photos on the go in any of the parks. If you are a season pass holder, you are allowed to download pictures from Photopass for free for 30 days. Being a season pass holder, I have taken advantage of this many times.
Hit High Traffic Rides First
If you enter the park at rope drop, dash straight to a high traffic ride that your family wants to ride to walk on fairly quickly. If you are at Magic Kingdom and are headed to Frontierland, either Splash Mountain or Pirates of the Caribbean is a good rope drop ride choice. In the other direction, Space Mountain or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train are good ideas to ride.
Be Willing to Split Up
Sure, a family vacation means you want the family to experience attractions together. However, in the interest of time you may want to consider dividing and conquering to ensure those in your party get to do their must do’s. Also, many times the single ride lines go much faster. Again, your family may have to split up.
At Magic Kingdom – Consider Watching Parades from Frontierland
The evening parade runs from Main Street U.S.A toward Frontlierland. Generally, Frontierland tends to be less crowded with guests watching the parade. Enjoy attractions longer in the evening and still see the parade by arriving to watch the parade in Frontierland.
Dining at Disney does not mean that everyone in your group has to order an entrée. Many Disney eateries offer portion sizes large enough to share. Feel free to divide food between your group if you feel it better fits your appetite.
Bring Your Own Snacks
Save money by avoiding purchasing snacks and food in the parks. Disney allows guests to bring in food, water and snacks. Bring in your own snacks and sandwiches in an insulated bag to avoid purchasing meals in the park.
