Hello everyone! I am New to the Disney World MW, I live in Southern California and i am a Annual Passholder for Disneyland! I am going to WDW for the first time Sept 12 ( So close yet so far..) I upgraded my Disney pass for the Premier Pass for both Florida and Disneyland... I am just wondering if there is any tips for a WDW newbie? Greatly Appreciate it!!!!!

Welcome, yay for your first trip, are you staying on property? Made dining ressies? WDW is pretty huge and can be overwhelming so try and relax and take in as much as possible, but know you won't do everything , there are many hidden gems at Epcot and animal kingdom , so definitely take the time to explore those two parks , if you are staying on property take advantage of the extra magic hrs, a lot of people love to resort hop also, if you don't have a car , you can resort hop using the resorts monorail it's a great way to see some really beautiful areas , at the grand Floridian , the contemporary and the poly which has self serve dole whip, hope you have a blast:) - tracsant  1514.8 #2 4:20PM

I am going to be staying at the Art of Animation Resort and we won't be renting a car. I havent even thought about making reservations anywhere... Any recommendations? - disneywasted  8.5 #12864 5:15PM
Did you get the dining plan? - MicheyMouse  360.0 #677 5:22PM
Depends on what your flavor is. I recommend the Sci-Fi diner at HS. - Lelundrial  747.9 #276 5:24PM
It might be a bit tough getting reservations this close but I'm sure some places will have availability , going to most restaurants day of you will find booked but its not impossible , one of the downfalls of WDW you always need ressies and most places book up quick , but there are a lot of good quick serves , Be Our Guest does it for lunch and its first come but so worth it , make it a early lunch and get on line at 10/10:30 - tracsant  1514.8 #2 6:00PM
Epcot has lots of good places to eat. We like Beirgarten, the French restaurant and le cellier. - ally  509.0 #18 6:05PM
I am up for anything, I am just wondering if there are any places that I will need a reservation for that can not be missed... - disneywasted  8.5 #12864 10:29PM
If you want table service you need reservations. Sometimes you might get in without them, but the odds are you'll wait a while. If you are just a party of two it'll be easier though. September isn't all that busy, but it'd be make reservations soon for places you really want to eat at. - DizneyGirl  1001.7 #8 5:08AM
*should be I'd, not it'd - DizneyGirl  1001.7 #8 5:10AM
I just want to thank you all for all of your help so far it's really helping :) - disneywasted  8.5 #12864 10:30PM
Chef Mickeys is fun, I love Le Celliar at Epcot, Boma is great at Animal Kingdom Lodge, O'Hana at Poly are all fun places to eat. I definitely recommend you spend some time making some ressies. Check out All Ears. Net for menu's. and lastly don't get hung up on comparing dland to WDW, you will drive yourself crazy. Appreciate the difference and live in the magic. Count yourself lucky to be able to visit both parks. Have fun! - Betsyboo  21.5 #169 5:28AM
Welcome! Make sure you have comfortable shoes that your feet are used to! Lots and lots of walking at WDW! - MsMode  35.7 #133 5:38AM
