Top 20 Tips of All Time For Walt Disney World Rookies

4. Arrive for Rope Drop and Stay Late -- The Disney Parks are the highlight of every guests’ trip to Walt Disney World, and thus they are sure to be crowded throughout each day. Guests who want to make the most of their time in the parks and experience as much as possible without the crazy crowds should plan on visiting at specific times of the day. Each morning should start with guests arriving for rope drop, which entails getting to the park before it officially opens and waiting to be let inside. Guests are usually treated to entertainment while waiting and once the park is open they are some of the first to be let inside where they can enjoy few crowds and low wait times. Many guests opt to sleep in while on vacation, and while this is a relaxing option, the mornings are typically the least crowded times in the theme parks making rope drop a great time to visit. In addition to early mornings, late nights in the parks tend to be less crowded than the busy afternoons. Many guests who didn’t pause for a break or those with small children have typically headed home by late night, leaving the parks fairly empty. Late nights are a great time to enjoy popular attractions that would have otherwise had very lengthy wait times. By visiting the theme parks first thing in the morning and late at night, guests are sure to avoid high crowds and enjoy popular attractions with much lower wait times than normal!
