Dad’s 3 Com­mon Sense Tips

WDW Magazine - - Contents -

If you are a first time vis­i­tor to Walt Dis­ney World, there are a few things you might want to know be­fore you get there.

Dad’s Com­mon Sense Tip #1 – Go Ex­plor­ing

There is so much to see and do around the Value Re­sorts that’s pretty easy to miss if you don’t go ex­plor­ing. Cool things like danc­ing around the pools, Movies Un­der the Stars, jog­ging trails, play­grounds, and even ar­cades.

Some­times there are spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids (and the adults). Be sure to check with the front desk to see what’s go­ing on.

Dad’s Com­mon Sense Tip #2 – The Food Courts

Eat­ing break­fast in Ev­ery­thing Pop (the food court at the Pop Cen­tury) is one of my fa­vorite things to do at WDW. I know, I’m weird, but it’s good food, at a rea­son­able price (for Dis­ney), and the peo­ple watch­ing is some of the best ever. Oh and the Dis­ney clas­sic movies on the TV’S are down­right Fun.

The Food Courts at the Value Re­sorts of­fer a wide va­ri­ety of choices. You can even get things like milk, fruit and snacks right in the Food Court. Check them out.

Dad’s Com­mon Sense Tip #3 – Deal­ing with the Crowds

The Value Re­sorts are the big­gest and busiest ho­tels at Walt Dis­ney World. Over 20,000 peo­ple can be stay­ing at the All-star Re­sorts on a busy day. That leads to big crowds dur­ing cer­tain times of the day.

While you can’t avoid all the crowds, there are some things you can do to min­i­mize the time wait­ing in line:

• Buses at night – avoid the buses right af­ter the big shows at the parks (night­time fireworks, pa­rades, and park clos­ing time). Wait 30 min­utes or so and the lines will be pretty much gone.

• Buses in the morn­ing – there is al­ways a rush at the bus stops right about park open­ing time. Get to the bus area an hour be­fore or wait a cou­ple of hours af­ter open­ing time.

• Eat at odd times – the Food Courts get very busy es­pe­cially at break­fast time. Eat early in the morn­ing, mid morn­ing, mid af­ter­noon and late evenings to miss the big crowds.
