While there are some fantastic attractions at Walt Disney World, some are better than others. If time is tight, you will want to skip the odd attraction.
All Walt Disney World Theme Parks are massive. Attempting a park in 1 day will probably lead to failure, tiredness & grumpy kids. If you do have less time, decide on your must-do attractions before you visit.
Always try to get to the park for opening. Lines are usually quieter the first few hours each day.
Unfortunately, this might be unavoidable, but try to avoid major holidays. As park capacity returns to normal, except holidays to become capacity crowds.
FastPass+ isn’t returning to Walt Disney World, but a new service called Disney Genie+ will be soon. However, unlike FastPass+, it is a paid service. For $15 per ticket per day, you can choose the next available time to arrive at various attractions and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance. It is worth noting that Disney Genie+ isn’t available on all attractions. While $15 a day does not feel too expensive, it will soon add up for large families and those taking extended vacations.
Since you paid for the dining plan in advance, in full, your priority is to make the absolute most out of it. And don’t be cheap either.
You can actually use your snack credit (worth $5) on tasting proportions during the Food and Wine Festival. It’s a good way to truly maximize your credit.
One negative aspect of the Disney Dining Plan is that it kind of forces you to eat. Since you have certain amount of credits each day, you have to use them all so that you don’t waste your money. And honestly, you might have times when it’s your last day at Disney and you still have 4 table service, and 5 snacks left over.
You’ll save more money going this route as opposed to paying out of pocket. This is the only exception to tip number 97 above.
Since these restaurants require 2 table-service credits ($86), you’ll never truly maximize your credit.
