For DL, since the 2 parks are right next to each other, you shouldn't have to do too much planning. And DL is laid out like MK and you don't have to pre select your FP so a tip for DL would be to start your morning and go towards adventure land and then work your way back around the park. Or start in tomorrow land and go the other way. What days are you going in Nov? I can tell you a ton of other   More...

Or start in tomorrow land and go the other way. What days are you going in Nov? I can tell you a ton of other tricks. Like what rides to do in the am and what can be skipped for later etc and FP  - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 3:40PM
Also, you never know what time the FP will be until that day. And at some point you can walk by Pitates and the line be 20 mins and Hainted only 5. So then we go and do haunted and then comeBack to pirates after and it's only a 5 min wait. So that's why it's better to pass it and come back then stand in the longer line at the time. You  get it all done. And not I g time or late night is always very slow and you can get a ton of rides done then too - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 4:00PM
i will be there nov 7 and 8.  - 5disneylovers  965.6 #5 6:57PM
You should do a weekly series on DL 101 for us newbies! 👊 - mrsincredible  982.1 #4 7:20PM
Oh that'll prob be not too bad since the Halloween stuff will be done (except haunted) and the Xmas won't ha e started yet, prob, so the crowds shouldn't be too bad  - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 7:41PM
If you wait till right before closing for POTC, they will sometimes let you have your own boat, you can ask to wait for front or back too. It's so fun a little spookier too. Same with HM , and walking out at closing is so peaceful plus Main Street stays open for an extra hour of shopping or ice cream, just not jolly Holliday or the restaurants.  - secretagentangel  1425.2 #101 7:50PM
It's not that hard and you don't need much planning. If you are at rope drop you can get all the top rides in the first two hours with little wait. - goofygal  8206.9 #6 7:04AM
Exactly! But if DL has magic morning then you want to avoid Peter Pan since the line is already an hour by then, right?! :) yeah we usually head to Indy first and go that way and now that we all can't go with the kids someone goes to Space or Star Tours and gets fps for that and then meets at Indy right in time for the parent pass switch :) yes, we have a method :) haha - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 8:32AM
Peter Pan is just plain hard!  Even if we're there On a non-Magic Morning right at rope drop and in the front of the crowd, and walk directly through the castle, it's still somehow at least a 20 min wait by the time we get there, lol - Spoonful_O_Sugar  574.3 #320 9:00AM
Peter Pan is a favorite for us. We get there at rope drop and head straight there. It can still be a 15 minute wait, but any other time it's at least 40 minutes  - fab5  61.2 #4154 11:09AM
True about Peter Pan but the line never gets shorter so go first thing. I can't wait to see it when it reopens with the new effects! - goofygal  8206.9 #6 7:32AM
I am so excited to see it redone--it's probably my favorite! ✨ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  574.3 #320 8:23AM
Really?! Yeah the last time we were there we went straight there and we were lucky to be like the first 10 or so in line... Usually my dad takes the stroller for us and doesn't ride but now that it'll be redone we'll be farther back since we'll have to drop it off to get in line. But my husband is tall and walks the a fastest so he usually has the stroller and meets us in line :)  - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 10:04AM
It shouldn't be to busy when you go but I suggest get a fast pass for radiator springs racers first thing they go so fast! And you don't wanna miss that ride.  - ajay87  156.1 #2528 9:40AM
☝this - bearlove  96.7 #3492 8:41AM
I agree, if riding Radiator Springs Racers is a must, then head straight to the FP line.  The line to get the FP can look quite lengthy, but it moves quickly because the cast members take care if dispensing them  - fab5  61.2 #4154 11:12AM
Ok.   I'll post a must do recommendations when it gets closer  - 5disneylovers  965.6 #5 6:26PM
Yeah and what we do is send the 1 person that they like having in line (goes faster if only 1 from your party is in line) goes to get the fp and the rest of us head to toy story. Then when they are done (usually is my dad) he meets is at toy story and we are getting off so then we get in line and do it again since it's always short then (on non magic mornings there). Then the roller coaster and then we head back to cars land.. That's how our mornings go a lot there :) - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 10:27AM

Never mind... I just looked it up and yes there is a $17 fee. Well, all the hotels along there have a parking fee too but usually not that high. The hotel we stay at was free for a long time but then they all started charging. It was $7 a day and now is $8.

The Desert inn & suites is my favorite!! It's the closest hotel to the main gate that's super affordable if you book in advance. They have great suites as well  - PirateHairDork  375.4 #554 8:34AM
Yup!! We always book so far that we get the cheapest rate, $69 a night!! We love it! And no fees at all to book or cancel! And yes, the walk is fantastic! So fast and close! - brodysmommy  401.4 #510 9:32AM
We have. The rooms are comfy. They have bunk bed rooms for the kids too. There isn't free breakfast but hotel parking is free and it's a short walk to the entrance to the parks! That's what we liked about it best. - missmimi90  1769.9 #78 12:55AM
It's ok if you don't have room on freeway side but our go-to hotel is the Sheraton Anaheim (one that looks like a castle). They have their own free bus service too. We have found their rates to be better too sometimes. - goofygal  8206.9 #6 7:11AM
