10.) Phone battery getting low? Charge it up at one of the outlets inside of Innoventions or, our new favorite, the breezeway of Cinderella Castle! Who knew they were outlets there, right?
9.) Trying to get somewhere fast? We don't recommend the Magic Kingdom Deluxe Resort buses. For example, the Grand Floridian buses often stop at other deluxe resorts along the way, making for a long ride!
8.) Want to avoid the hassle of claiming a spot for a Magic Kingdom parade? The square at the entrance to Main Street U.S.A. is so spacious that you can walk right up for a great view. You may not be on the first row lining the curb, but you can get close!
7.) When leaving the Magic Kingdom at closing time, don't take the Express Monorail if you don't have to. The Resort Monorail line is usually shorter and you can get/connect to the Transportation and Ticket Center on this route too.
6.) Too crowded? Do the opposite of the crowds! For example, eat at off times, arrive early, do not go to the park offering Extra Magic Hours, etc.
5.) To cut down on hustling to and from your dining reservations, book them all for evening hours if possible. Why? This way, you can better make use of your time instead of spending precious hours getting to and from your reservation. Believe it or not, travel time can add up to an hour each way.
4.) Pouring rain during your trip? No worries. Head to the Seas with Nemo and Friends or the Land pavilion at Epcot, shop the connecting stores at Main Street U.S.A. and Hollywood Studios, splurge on a sit-down meal to ride out the storm, or do some resort hopping via Monorail.
3.) Driving at Disney? Don't park at the parks each day and pay the fee. Instead, park at Downtown Disney and use their bus service for free.
2.) The Magic Kingdom parades run through Frontierland, Liberty Square, and onto Main Street U.S.A. During parade times, plan to stick around in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, or Adventureland, as the streets and paths are roped off and can't be crossed and you can find yourself stranded on one side of the park from the other!
1.) Be a Minimalist! Now when traveling with little ones, this isn't easy to do. But if possible, take the least amount of stuff as you can, go ahead and eat in the park instead of bringing in your own food, take advantage of free cups of ice water from counter service spots and free first aid, go for cross-body bags/arms-free bags, and invest in a small, maneuverable stroller. I would also suggest paying via MagicBand so you don't have to mess with cash and change and etc.
