"Make an itinerary"
Submitted on Mar 28, 2012 by luvmydisneyrt
When traveling to Disney an intinerary is critical to a good time. check show times and park hours then book your meals to coordinate where you want to be and you can either eat at that park or book close to where you are going to be as travel around the world takes time. Also, bring a change of clothes so you can go directly to dinner if going back to the hotel takes too much time. My kids are 11 and 14 and we still bring a small stroller to hold a backpack and extra drinks. You can park it and come back to it later for food, drinks or extra clothing. Also, available in your backpack should be a rain poncho for rainy afternoons. Enjoy

PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE. make reservations before you go to Disney World. I have seen too many young families upset because they waited and were not let in. If you kind of know your iterenary then book your breakfasts, lunches or dinners at the earliest possible monement, to be sure you get a table. You can book a table upto 120 days before your trip starts, and you can book it on line. If you change your mind, or want to book another restaurant instead, then go to concigarge and have them change it when you get to your resort or hotel.
"Breakfast Before the Park Opens"

Make a reservation prior to the park's opening (and Extra Magic Hours) so that you can enter the Magic Kingdom before most others. You will be able to take pictures of the castle and Main Street with nobody else in the photo. If your reservation is early enough, you will also be able to go to your first FastPass attraction before others (you'll be at the front of the crowd as they enter the park).
After making your reservation, simply arrive at the park 10 minutes before your reservation and go the very far right turnstiles. There will be signs to guide you through. Remember, if you choose to do this, you're not only purchasing a meal, you're also purchasing character interaction, the first FastPasses, and the chance to enter the park before almost everyone else! Enjoy!
