Hi MW WDW! I'm a CM at DL and I'm planning to go to WDW in January. It will be my first visit ever to WDW. Any tips for a first time guest??

Definitely do the dining plan. It's not a big deal at dl but it's so worth it at wdw. Also spend more time at epcot and animal kingdom since nothing is like it at dl. Dl has nothing on the magic kingdom. When are you going in January? We are going then too. Weather is usually decent in January too. Have fun! - disneyrunmom  231.6 #1589 12:25PM
Make dining reservations at the 180 day mark. There is a lot to do so try to plan out a tentative schedule to make the most of your time. You don't need a car unless you plan to go off property. From what I have heard, January is a great time to go, enjoy!! - Andrea84  713.9 #10 12:33PM
Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster in Hollywood Studios are awesome! World Showcase in EPCOT is fun to shop and to eat, or drink, ;) around the world. - PixieDust76  93.4 #76 12:45PM

Welcome! Do everything you possibly can!! Dining plan (make reservations early), Fantasmic, Illuminations, World Showcase, Animal Kingdom (Everest & Safari), Tower of Terror, cast discount, if you're going to take lots of pics then use Photopass, parades, Pirates, Haunted Mansion...oh my head is spinning! Most of all have fun!! - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #19 3:01PM
Welcome let's just say relax and enjoy all of what WDW as to offer. Around the world at Epcot followed by illuminations for sure. Have to go to HS ride ToT, rockin roller coaster, star wars, Indiana jones, lights motors action stunt show and fantastic. Animal kingdom, Expedition Everest, safari, dinosaur. All the parades, food, fun you can have just enjoy it. DTD is a fun place to shop. Never know about the weather but both water parks are fun you can also do some miniature golfing fantasia fairways is fun and winter summerland. Enjoy! Those were just a few things so much more Lol - mbgl12  23.4 #157 3:25PM
Thanks! Another question: How big is Pin Trading there? I know its pretty big here at DL. Most of the CMs (even myself) here wear a pin lanyard and trade. - BaseballMickey_CM  7625.5 #11 3:40PM
Pin trading and vinyl trading are just as popular at wdw! - Andrea84  713.9 #10 3:44PM
I think pin trading is bigger at wdw. More cm seem to wear them at wdw we have a much easier time finding ones we want. Haven't done much trading of vinyls so I'm not sure on those. - disneyrunmom  231.6 #1589 3:53PM
Welcome to.mw fl :) - Hbrunelli  118.6 #67 4:18PM
Hi BBM! Welcome to the other side of the magic!!  - mcarthy6  426.5 #520 4:34PM
BBM! I know you well by your DL posts! Tips: go see the three other parks since they are unique to WDW. Eat at many different places also unique. Lastly, have a blast at MK enjoy the differences. You will miss going between parks quickly since WDW is huge. We hope to see you at DL next time we are there! - RangerDoug  250.7 #1342 5:09PM
Hi there BBMCM! Happy to have you over here! Plan plan plan! WDW is so much bigger than DL, and time can go by so fast, so the more you plan your time, the better. You can Go on WDW.com and order personalized maps so you can start looking on how much magic there is! My family and I have been going for years, but we still make itineraries so we get to do everything we want!  Hope that helps! - TangledNdisneY  324.7 #27 5:52PM
It looks like we'll be spending a couple days at Epcot since its so big! Also, is the Electrical Parade performing during this time? or was that just a summer thing? - BaseballMickey_CM  7625.5 #11 5:54PM
Having visited DL about once a year for 20+ years before my first trip to WDW, I found it overwhelming. Appreciate WDW for what it is and don't get hung up on what it's not (DL). Stay as long as you can and take advantage of hopper passes. There is a lot to see & do and everything is very spread out! I am now very proud to say WDW is my favorite Disney destination! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.7 #3 6:49PM
How long are you going for and if you're looking for hotel advice, which level are you thinking? If you have time check out the different hotels with great lobbies and restaurants. Eat buffet breakfast (you won't need lunch) at BOMA (Animal Kingdom Lodge) and Chef Mickey's-Characters (Contemporary), regular breakfast or meal at Whispering Canyon Café-in character western CMs (Wilderness Lodge). Walk through the Grand Floridian and take the boat ride around the lake in front of it to MK even if you don't go to that park you get to a transportation hub. There are threads about restaurants on here it would probably be easy to search for. - Westcoast  174.6 #2325 12:17AM
That's too cool! It will be great seeing you in my surroundings for a change :-) - UppityEmpress  786.9 #9 2:34AM
When in January are you coming? I'll be out jan 6-13 and know electric parade wad running some of those days. PS, love your posts on the DL board, welcome to the FL side - timonT  411.3 #20 3:14AM

Oh 😂😂 just realized that post was 2+ years old😂😂 well people are still taking turns very slowly. Maybe it's the app, not the players.  - DisneyMom13  232.8 #1573 6:34PM

It happens, if you want start a game and I'll play you. I take a couple days off a week but I'll finish the games I start. - richiii3  1173.8 #153 2:20PM
@@Admin  Can't keep my games going, other end either not answering or app is stalling. It doesn't forfeit after 24 hrs of not answering. Want to play, but instead spend more time waiting and waiting. Thx - DisneyMom13  232.8 #1573 8:26AM
