Also, note that if you self-park at the Swan, don’t arrive any earlier than 10:30 am because the around the world portion of the park doesn’t open until 11 am.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 2 – Book Fast Passes ASAP” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”ticket”]If you’re staying on Disney property, you can book them 60 days in advance and 30 days in advance if you are staying off Disney property.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 3 – Drink Water for Free” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”glass”]You don’t have to buy bottled water! You can actually ask for cups of water, which are FREE! You can get one at any snack stand or quick-service restaurant with a soda fountain![/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 4 – Bring Something to Entertain Your Kids” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”mobile”]You should download some movies onto your phone (bring an external battery too) just in case the lines are long, which they likely will be. You can also bring coloring books and a few colored pencils if you’d like. However, make sure to leave the crayons at home![/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 5 – Enjoy Family Style Dining” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”cutlery”]If you’re not a tight budget, you should definitely enjoy the family style dining that Disney offers. This is an all-you-can-eat dining style. They bring you everything they serve, and you can enjoy as much as you care to, which can be a relaxing dining option.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 6 – Make Lunch/Dinner Reservations” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”calendar-check-o”]Not every restaurant takes reservations, but if you know where you’d like to eat, you should check! Many restaurants fill up quickly and don’t take walk-ins.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 7 – Know When to Quit” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”clock-o”]Disney is exhausting. If you have kids, you shouldn’t expect to spend the entire day at the park.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 8 – Minimize Bathroom and Food Stops” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”arrow-down”]If you’re traveling with a big group, you should try and get everyone to eat at the same time! Waiting in only one line for lunch will help save you time! Also, try and take the same bathroom breaks, which means that when one person has to go, everyone should try![/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 9 – Bring Snacks” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”check”]Don’t be hungry in line! Bring some healthy snacks like trail mix (without the chocolate) and granola bars to help ensure that no one’s blood sugar drops too low.[/x_feature_box][x_feature_box title=”Tip 10 – Remember Where You Are and Why You're There” title_color=”hsl(195, 74%, 67%)” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”50px” graphic_shape=”circle” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”hsl(343, 94%, 65%)” align_h=”left” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” child=”true” connector_width=”1px” connector_style=”dashed” connector_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 100%)” graphic_icon=”smile-o”]Do not let discomfort or little inconveniences put you in a bad mood! You may not have control over what happens on your vacation, but you do have control over how you react! Choose to be happy![/x_feature_box][/x_feature_list][cs_icon_list][/cs_element_column][/cs_element_row][/cs_element_section][cs_element_section _id=”30″ ][cs_element_row _id=”31″ ][cs_element_column _id=”32″ ][cs_element_text _id=”33″ ][/cs_element_column][/cs_element_row][/cs_element_section][/cs_content]
