All it takes is a little planning
via Charlie Champagne wdwnews.com After visiting Disney World during the Halloween season, I know that the crowds can only get worse if you visit Disney World at Christmas. After immersing myself in everything at the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Epcot—including the fun new food treats for sale—I learned some pretty easy ways to ease the stress and avoid being overwhelmed by crowds. Michelle Baumann, spokesperson, Walt Disney World says, “The holiday season is an enchanting time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. To make the most of your visit, be sure to plan ahead—and secure any special ticket offerings and dining reservations ahead of time.”
Download the Disney apps
via David Roark wdwnews.com There were two apps that made all the difference during our visit: My Disney Experience and Wait Times. Wait Times is pretty self-explanatory as it gives you a real-time view of how long the wait is for every single ride, show, or experience at any given moment. This allows you to plan accordingly and avoid rides where you know there will be intense crowds. My Disney Experience allows you to link your tickets, meal plan, book your daily fast passes, reserve dining, and even order food. Not only does it help you stay organized and breeze through crowds (by having everything linked to your Magic Bands that you wear everywhere), the app also provides all the information you need to make sure you don’t miss anything you have your heart set on seeing.
