Hey all! First time posting on the fl side! I am finally planning a trip to Disney world in Aug. I've lurked the lounge to pick up tips. But now I wanted to ask for recommendations. I will be there for 3-4 days staying in a value hotel on property but haven't decided which one yet. I'm picking up my neice who is a cm intern downthere so we get a hotel discount. I would love any help/tips/tricks you could give me. Thanks!

I really like the disney world site and allears.net, go to the search section of allears and just type in things you are interested in most! Review the park info on line of everything they have to offer before you go. DW is so much bigger, so having a plan in place before you go of your must see and dos is great and helps you maximize your time. You won't be able to do everything in one trip. Enjoy AK and EPCOT, since those are so unique, but don't miss MK and HS. We like to start and finish our trips with MK. When you visit, try not to compare the two, and try not to be overwhelmed by the size. You will absolutely love it!! - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 8:10PM
Oh, and if you like character dining, take advantage of those since they only have a few at DL. Favorites are Chef Mickey's, Ohanas, and Crystal Palace. Do the dining plan and check out restaurants they don't have at DL. We enjoy the food as much as everything else, lol! - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 8:14PM
This is so helpful! Thanks so much! Keep the tips coming! :) - dhBelle04  284.2 #1023 10:34PM
The most popular value resort seems to be Pop Century. Of course AoA is the newest value resort, but the prices seem to be higher than Pop. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 7:16PM
I stay at the Value resorts & my fave is Pop Century. I've found it to be clean, well set up, quiet even for a resort that has a lot of families with small kids, the pools are fun too. If you stay at any of the Values be sure to get a Preferred Room. It's closer to the main hall & buses. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #19 9:15PM
If you want a value resort , go with Pop Century!!! - skcanfield  563.4 #15 7:19PM
Pop is a favorite among many!! We are trying AoA in Nov/Dec. They all have good things about them, so in that regard, you can't make a bad choice. - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 7:19PM
Thanks for the tips about hotels! Any WDW tips in general? - dhBelle04  284.2 #1023 7:32PM
Or must dos? - dhBelle04  284.2 #1023 7:43PM
Take advantage of EMH both early and late if available. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 2:10AM
TOT is a must do! !! - lghr  48.8 #108 9:17PM
