We're off soon and every time I tell anyone at work they give me another tip :rolleyes008: most are useless :lol: but some are really good, so whats the best tip you have ever been given?
I think the best tip I was ever given was, after having booked loads of trips with travel agents, someone said "no one ever pays full rate @ disney, you can get loads of discounts on rooms" :rolleyes008:
We'd just stayed at the Wilderness lodge and Polynesian with no discounts at all, and when I worked out how much we'd have saved using AAA or AP discounts, we would have saved thousands!
So now the first thing we do is work out roughly when we want to go, look at historic data for AP and AAA discounts, factor in the potential for free dining etc. then work out the flights.
There are other things like the bounceback offers which got us about 40% off our December trip when we booked the rooms before we left in May
Get up early and get to the park for opening. Get loads done before the crowds build up.
Buy your bottled water from the supermarket NOT the parks. Then freeze them and take them frozen on the day.... cold drinks all day long.
Don't try and do everything.
Relax and have fun!!! Don't plan every little detail and then get P***y if you don't get every little thing done! It will never happen015:
I never want to be one of those angry people at Disney yelling at my kids and family because things are not going as planned. If Katelyn wants a nap then we will all take a nap and if she wants to look at a flower for 10 minutes then we will stand around and take pictures 015:
look for the Disney forums and chat with ppl that go often. That turned out to be the best advice I was ever given.
