    In order to participate, simply reply to this post with your best, most useful tip when traveling to Disney. The tip you feel makes you a true "Disney Jedi."

    Is it the perfect place to watch Wishes? Perhaps it's the best place to grab a burger? Maybe, it's your #1 tip for waiting in long lines?

    WHATEVER it is, if it's a "tip," it counts, and you will automatically be entered to win....

    THIS SUPER COOL R2D2 WINDOW CLING!

    After watching Wishes, have a drink or an ice cream and let the crowds leave. Then you will be able to take some wonderful photos of the Castle and Main Street whilst being able to stroll out after the crush has gone.

    Write yourself a trip report for each day you're there. When you struggle to remember what you did, read it back and re-live the memories :)

    My tip involves a hidden gem of a restaurant. If you've never been try to schedule Olivia's at OKW. We love it for breakfast.

    Don't forget about the First Aid Stations and Baby Care Centers. They have many things there to help out with things like blisters, and headaches, and bug bite itchies, and microwaves to heat baby food, nice changing tables, toys... even if you don't think you need one, stop by and see them! (I know mods aren't eligible to win, but I like participating anyway)! :D

    Take a picture of where you have parked your car at any of the theme parks include a photo of your car and number plate.
    This really helps at the end of a fun packed busy day as all the hire cars look the same as does the parking spaces lol xx

    The biggest tip that I can offer is to make sure to plan some "chill out" time in-between doing the parks or you will feel like you need a holiday when you return home. :lol:
    [Like Tink, I know that Mods are excempt from winning a prize, but I just thought that I would throw this one in the pot! :lol:]

    We always try and plan what park we are going to on what day :) It saves a lot of wasted time in the morning trying to figure out which is the best for that day and you also are sure not to run out of time before you see each park :)

    My tip...step outside your comfort zone. If you are not really an extrovert, still raise your hand in the line when they ask for "volunteers", interact with the CM's they are usually a friendly lot, smile a lot (if you can't do it here, you are in trouble) and get in touch with your inner 10 year old. I know he or she is still in there.
