Are you a frequent visitor to the Walt Disney World parks?  Or, do you make it your yearly vacation spot?  Regardless of how often you visit Walt Disney World, it doesn’t hurt to freshen up your touring plans, especially with all the new changes coming out!  Let me share with you some New Touring Tips for the Frequent Walt Disney World Visitor.

My Disney Experience:  Now, more than ever, it is essential that you create an account on My Disney Experience.  All it takes is an email address, and you’re good go go.  On My Disney Experience, you can link your reservations, see if you are selected for FastPass+, and even complete your on-line check in.  Another useful aspect of My Disney Experience is the FREE app you can download for your smart phone.  From the app, you can access up to the minute wait times, see what attractions are currently closed, and even check if there is a dining reservation time available at your favorite restaurant.

Utilizing FastPass+:  FastPass+ and how to  effectively use it is all abuzz when people are talking about Disney.  How do you best utilize FastPass+?  Well, I think it depends on your touring style.  As a mom, I’m going to be more likely to use FPP to reserve a spot for Wishes at the Magic Kingdom.  Traveling with teenager?  Then a great use of FPP would be on Space Mountain.  You can currently make 3 FPP selections each day, at one Disney theme park.

New Fantasyland:  New Fantasyland is bringing A LOT of new visitors to Magic Kingdom.  If you are traveling with younger children, consider FastPassing Ariel’s Grotto, and enjoy some of the other attractions in Fantasyland while you wait.  Enchanted Tales with Belle can be quite a wait, but it’s so worth it!  This is a great attraction to visit after lunch, or during a parade if you don’t hit it first thing in the morning.  Also, Fantasyland used to be a great area to hit right after Rope Drop.  Fantasyland is more spread out now, or so it seems, with the attractions ranging from Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, just past Storybook Circus, to It’s a Small World at the border of Frontierland/Fantasyland.  Keep in mind that Fantasyland gets REALLY busy in the morning, making it even more appealing during a parade or fireworks show.

Dining Reservations:  We all know how important it is to make those at the 180 day mark, right?  If you haven’t dined pre-rope drop, or you’ve missed some of the fabulous locations in World Showcase, your next trip could be the time to try those!  Dining pre-rope drop at any of the Disney parks makes a great start to your day.  You’re in the park early, making wonderful photo opportunities, and you can get a head start on your touring.  If you can get a 7:00 ADR for Chef Mickey’s when the Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00 you should have plenty of time to eat AND make it to the park early!

Utilize Park Hoppers.  Park Hoppers can be so worth it if when you are the parks for just a few days, or you’ve been many times.  The more our family visits WDW, the more likely we are to get Park Hopper tickets.  The flexibility they offer is great.  And, since our kids are getting older, we like to visit more than one park per day when we are touring.  Perhaps you REALLY want to ride the new Test Track, and that’s all you care about doing at EPCOT.  Then, get Park Hoppers, visit EPCOT in the morning and get on Test Track right away, then walk over to Hollywood Studios, and take in some shows.  I think the more experienced a visitor you are, the more useful Park Hoppers can be.

How are you changing your touring of the Disney parks, with all the new changes coming about?  We’d love to hear your tips!
