AHH! Hi mousewait! My boyfriend and I are going to Disney World in August with park hopper tickets for 5 days. We are disneyland passholders and have never been to disney world. Any suggestions on what to see and how to navigate the park?

Get some maps and study them before you go. I've never been to DL but I know the size difference is amazing. I hope you have a wonderful time. 😄 - lghr  48.8 #102 8:20PM
get a free souvenir maps from WDW Website! study it first, just don't bring it to the park :) - otilegna  2169.0 #64 8:33PM
Use the 'magic hours' if staying at a resort hotel. The parks are less crowded during then so you can enjoy more. Go on the rides that DL doesn't have. Soarin is the exact same ride so just pass unless you really want to... In a frequent DL person also but have been to WDW twice. In Epcot check out all the countries and a couple of them have cute little rides in them. We missed one of them the first trip but made it the 2nd time around. Nap if you need to in the afternoon and make sure to stay late at whatever park has 'magic hours'. That's what I would suggest :) - brodysmommy  406.0 #510 9:02PM
agree with brodysmommy, go to all the attractions and rides that is not available at Disneyland... If you are staying at a Disney Resort, take advantage of magic Hours and plan it accordingly! Spend One Day for every park, but then go hopping if the park you choose close early (definitely Animal Kingdom). Get an external battery for your phone. Also, if you are planning to go to a Table-Service restaurant, it is time-consuming but a good experience (EPCOT has the cool restaurants, especially if you want to try some foods from different countries). - otilegna  2169.0 #64 11:16PM
Go to the park that has extra magic hrs for that day . Don't try & see or do everything , because you can't !!!!!! Epcot takes the most time to see , AK can be done in a day . - skcanfield  500.7 #16 3:58AM
Thank you all so much!! Those are really helpful suggestions!! :D - fuzzylumpkinz  8.5 #11197 12:06PM
Read the Unofficial tour guide book for WDW. As a seasoned Dland ap holder too it really helped me understand the parks and how to work them. Definitely don't do things like Soaring or Star Tours unless you have extra time. They are the same as Dland. - mzdisnee  504.1 #15 12:50PM
I agree with MzDisnee, read the guide and get to know the rides. only do the WDW exclusive rides. the others are the same. Then you can go to DW website and make ur own customized map and itinerary to help navigate the parks easier. you can also download a pdf map to get to know the parks - ariel116  99.3 #68 1:08PM
Study the maps, and hit as many rides as you can. Don't skip the safari ride at Animal Kingdom. Enjoy the superior queues. I think the POTC one is my favorite. - Lelundrial  569.4 #335 2:15PM

There are 100's of people standing at bag check. Lines backed up to La Brea Bakery. They've stopped people here to herd over people already in DCA over to DL. And, we see 100's of those folks standing at the gates.  - thompsonsyl  5.2 #16912 2:36AM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  128.1 #2967 3:57PM
