We are coming to WDW for the first time in 2 weeks. Anyone have any hints or advice for newbies?

Hi , there is so much to do so don't get overwhelmed , are you staying on property? If so take advantage of extra magic hours which will be early morning or later at night , did you make dining reservations? Unfortunately that is pretty much a must , try to get lunch at be our guest it's a quick serve with 1st come 1st serve it starts at 10:30 so try and be in line at 10 , it's a great experience , if you rent a car try to resort hop , but no matter what you will have an amazing time:) - tracsant  1599.6 #4 4:09PM
If you are a frequent Dland visitor, you can skip things like Soaring, bugs life, captain EO, honey I Shrunk...they are the same. Other things like Pirates, HM, space mtn are different enough to enjoy. - mzdisnee  575.6 #15 4:13PM
Get to the parks before they open. If it opens at 9:00 am get there around 8:15. The usually soft open at 8:45-8:50. It is best to get there first thing to hit the most popular rides and while the crowds are lighter and the weather is cooler. - mzdisnee  575.6 #15 4:15PM
Hav fun and go when the parks open! - ally  509.0 #19 5:22PM
Do you have kids and how old are they - disneygirl74  6.9 #15990 5:46PM
Don't try to see & do everything because you can't !!!! Do your must sees then fill in with the rest . - skcanfield  595.0 #14 6:11PM
Get ready for the best time of your life:) - Tazhalo  72.8 #92 6:14PM
Enjoy every moment and have fun. - 5disneylovers  1283.6 #8 6:54PM
Don't worry about seeing everything (you won't and can't there's no way) just have FUN! - bduncan  4.7 #478 3:17AM
Go ti animal kingdom when its open earlt and di the safari ride u will see more animsl.pecos bills has a good hamburger w a really good topping bar in MK..get fast passes first for toy story and areosmith as soon as u can take refillable water bottles they will give you water .. - disneygirl74  6.9 #15990 5:49AM
My first trip to Disney I managed to do every ride at least once in every park but it was not easy. First I took out a map and planned my route based on fast pass locations, ride locations and ride popularity. I allowed only 1 hour for lunch and 1 hour for dinner and we ate during off peak times. Lunch at 11 or 2 pm dinner we used the same system either at 4 pm or 8 pm depending on if we had an early lunch or not. Now with a route and hopefully you are getting fast passes early and getting 2 per area and toggling them. To toggle fast passes is to get FP for the ride you want then visit the less popular ones then move on to next area and get FP then repeat since you can use your FP anytime during the day. If you can try Wegoshop or gardengrocer websites to purchase snacks and drinks to save time, money, and skip a lot of lines. Epcot if staying on site go there on a nighttime magic hour so you don't get trampled by the people and stuck in a 30 minute exit line. Magic kingdom the same as Epcot Hollywood studios same as Epcot Animal kingdom do morning magic hours and get there early and you might see the animal check ups and feelings. I got to see the lion chomping in steak once. There is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes, drink water you want to be comfortable. The parades in every park cause traffic so if you don't want to see them plan to not be near parade routes. However the parades are fun and different in revert park. If you have any questions you can shoot me an email at [email protected] it's my Disney email - athica  12.9 #223 7:06AM
I think the gp changed, from my understanding you have to go now at the time it says on your pass. But don't quote me one of the more frequented mw'ers might know better! - ccmom  187.5 #49 9:52AM
Ccmom you are correct FP times are strictly enforced now. You must return in the time frame on the FP - girlonfire  54.1 #107 10:13AM
The best hint I can give you is use your photo pass as much as possible. When you get home use the pictures to build a family calander much cheaper thatn paying for all photos and you get the ones you like. Have fun - Tammyeee  260.8 #1394 10:14AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  13842.3 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 9:55PM
