10 Terrific Disney World Travel Tips from Facebook

Our facebook fans share their real-life travel advice for your Walt Disney World vacation.
  1. “Download episodes of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse to your iPhone to watch in line. This was a lifesaver as we waited with a 4-year-old to meet Tink in Pixie Hollow.” Laura McCalla
  2. “We get a feel for the Magic Kingdom by riding the train first. That way we see what we want to visit and it always helps to map out the area.” Lori Williamson Stewart
  3. “A family favorite—we make dinner reservations at the California Grill on top of the Contemporary Resort Hotel. If you go outside on the viewing deck, you can watch the fireworks show with music piped in from the Magic Kingdom.” Jennifer Mooney Mattingly
  4. “We listen to the WDW Radio podcasts as we walk through the park. They’re enormously helpful, fun, and informative.” Jessica McKnett
  5. “Go in December! The park is decorated, there’s a Christmas parade, and the characters are dressed up in holiday outfits.” Kristen Frontera
  6. "Order the rotisserie chicken from Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café in Tomorrowland. It’s big enough for two people." Jenny Naquin Thibodaux
  7. “We take advantage of FASTPASS (a free service that lets you reserve a time at a ride to avoid waiting in line). We send one or two runners ahead to get FASTPASS tickets for everybody and reserve the times for our group when needed.” Lisa Stappenbeck-Faris 
  8. “A little gem for a casual lunch is the Boulangerie Patisserie, a bakery-sandwich shop at the Paris Pavilion in Epcot. The food is fantastic.” Leigh See More: Hines-Sight Blog
  9. "If you have small children, try to stay at one of the hotels with a monorail stop (such as the Contemporary). They’re so convenient for strollers. You just roll the stroller on and off the monorail rather than having to navigate it onto a bus.” Alissa Corum Jenkins
  10. "If you or someone in your party starts to get cranky, get out of that part of the park. Hop on a monorail, go to another part, and just walk around for a while. Take in all the imagination that went into designing everything.” Susan Janettas Visconti
