10 Tips for Having Your Most Satisfying Walt Disney World Trip Ever

6) Arrive at Rope Drop

If you want to see a park when it is the least crowded, arrive before it opens so you’ll get in when the rope drops. Most of the day’s guests will not have yet arrived, and those who are there will be hurrying to a popular ride. You will be amazed by how much you can get done the first hour or so. Take advantage of the shorter lines and get your must-dos out of the way. Once the crowd grows spend the rest of the day where the lines are shorter.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
