The Basics

The sheer size of Walt Disney World®can make the experience seem overwhelming, especially for first-time visitors, but options abound. Ticket options are varied, with everything from a base ticked that gets you into one park per day to a multi-day Park Hopper pass that allows you to enter one park in the morning and another in the afternoon. Add on a water park ticket for access to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. Park-goers who’d rather leave the logistics to the experts can book their own VIP tour with a private tour guide to help navigate the parks, snag a FASTPASS®(scheduled skip-the-line passes), and make meal arrangements. For additional fees, the park also offers an array of special experiences, including Disney’s Family Magic®tour, the Backstage Magic tour, and the Magic Behind Our Steam Trains tour.

Tips for Beating the Lines at Walt Disney World

Lines are an inevitable part of the Disney®experience, especially at popular rides such as Pirates of the Caribbean, but with a little planning, you can avoid the worst of them. Get to the park before it opens, and immediately head toward the big ticket rides near the back of the park, scheduling your three FASTPASS® ridesas you go. Lines tend to be shorter during parades and fireworks shows, and the slower-paced rides are often quieter in the evening after families with young kids have headed home for the day.
