Morning Thrill Seekers,
Those of you that follow us on facebook will already know that we’ve been running a competition in conjunction with our #ShareTheLove campaign, the idea was for entrants to #ShareTheLove by offering Theme Park Tips in return they would be entered in to a prize draw to win a Minion (Despicable me!).
Our facebook friends didn’t disappoint, so today I thought I’d do my part and #ShareTheLove with you by listing their great Orlando Attraction Tickets Tips.
take your own packed lunch
Here’s my tip, wear comfy shoes….
Fast track is definitely worth the money. We went last year in peak season and never queued for longer than 20 Minutes for a ride.
If you get the meal deals it saves the kids saying there hungry and thirsty all the time .
Heres a tip. Get the fast track it might cost a few quid more but can get on more rides
Buy your tickets here in the UK – it is MUCH cheaper than buying them at the gates to the parks (and saves time). There are also exclusive UK deals.
Go to the rides that are furthest away from the gates first. The queues are shorter there!
Get to the park early and take a break at lunch time to miss the worst of the crowds and heat, then go back in the evening.
If the Harry Potter part of Islands of adventure is very crowded, go off and enjoy the rest of the park and come back late afternoon. You will then find that the crowds have nearly all gone and you can then get on the ride quite easily.
Even if you decide not to pay for a photopass package the photopass photographers or the cast member supporting them) are happy to take your photo with your own camera as well as theirs. This is a great way of getting photos where the person who is normally the family photographer can also be in some of the photos.
When entering the park turn left by pass all the rides and go straight round to the back of the park then start on the furthest ride and work back anticlockwise towards the park entrance and hopefully you will miss the longer queues as most people should be following behind you.
If travelling with little ones, make a note of the first aid location as soon as you enter. My 8 month old had an allergic reaction on his first ever trip to Magic Kingdom. Luckily, I knew the quickest way to the first aid location, and he was treated really quickly.
Book a night in one of the Universal Resorts and you get free express passes for two days in both parks! These express passes are unlimited not once per ride.. Saves £’s compared to buying express passes in the parks
Put a cool box in your car full of ice and drinks. When you get back to the car you still have ice cold drinks on way back to hotel and will save you pennies.
My tip: instead of spending a fortune on parking fees park for free at Downtown Disney then use the free transit busses to get to your desired park! Just show your tickets to the driver for free transport!
Take time to ‘stop and smell the roses’ don’t just rush round,look round!!!
Get to the parks for opening, its amazing how much you can get done in the first hour.
Take time to sit back, relax and people watch
All ways go anti clock wise as most with go the other way. No matter how well you know the park get a map and schedule as the always come in handy to find the closes loo or atm
Save the ride with the longest waiting time until last (close to closing time)…..We do this all the time and the line is always shorter, if there is a line even!!
