    Omg, flight of passage, I went, it was amazing! I don’t really have much fear for simulations, so for the people who are getting scared if they plan to go on it, DONT! The wait will be worth it, and for a 11 year old like me, you might be thinking I was scared, at first I was, but when you get on the ride, your gonna love it so much

    I was least excited for Animal Kingdom last time I went, but it ended up being my favorite day overall. Hollywood Studios on the other hand was a bit underwhelming.

    I’m only familiar with Disney World but my general rule is go big or don’t go at all. I don’t mean max out your credit cards, but if you try to do Disney cheap try not to be disappointed when it doesn’t feel too great. This applies in a few ways... Food: the “cheap” food at the parks is still very expensive, but as you go into the high tier places you end up spending more typical prices relative to the quality. Admittedly this works best for couples. Avoid the snacks and junk food and go for the nice breakfasts and dinners. Resorts: Sure you’re mostly here for the parks, but the nicer resorts do a better job of keeping up the magic outside of the parks. After a long day the extra quality and ambiance can really go a long way, plus all of the service and activity perks. There’s a lot to consider based on which park you like best, but for me the big three around Magic Kingdom are hard to beat (Floridian, Polynesian, and Contemporary). Their close proximity to MK and the integration of the monorails and ferry boats makes these three resorts feel like you’re still in the park in a way. Time: Trying to cram too much into too little time can quickly sully the experience. I highly recommend at least 4 full day/nights total if you’re going to bother at all, and really 5-8 sounds better if you want to feel like you saw it all. If that sounds expensive then wait and save up more. Magic Kingdom and Epcot in particular can easily be two day experiences. And of course there’s a lot of other stuff to do other than the parks. Final note: If you want a good few of the fireworks at MK, you’ll need to stake out your spot well ahead of time, 2 hours at least (a good reason to spend two days in MK, so you plan ahead to get one good fireworks show) The trick is to claim a spot so you’re standing just behind one of the little fenced off gardens. This way no one can push directly in front of you and your view is relatively protected. As the crowd begins to gather people will fill into all the available space and be told to stand up if they’re sitting on the ground.

    If you're afraid of falling, but don't mind being high up otherwise, the list can be a little different. I found the start and end of Soarin' to be a bit too much, because you can go up/down (front row) or forward/back (back row) really fast - I'm guessing about 20 feet in about 10 seconds. The middle row turned out to be most comfortable for me for that part, and the rest of the ride is very gentle, so it's still worth it. Flight of Passage is even better at this, because while the main part of the ride is marginally more intense, there's no great swoops or drops, and you start and end very close to where you are for the majority of the ride. Tower of Terror I can only ride once per trip if I'm talked into it. I don't mind most of the roller coasters at Disney, but keep in mind Expedition Everest holds you at the top overlooking Disney World for a few seconds, and sends you backwards for a few seconds. This can be a bit much - if you can handle the gentler backwards drop of the Frozen ride mixed with the steeper hills and faster speeds of a roller coaster, imagine the two mixed together for an idea of what Expedition Everest is like.

    Just got back from Disney and definitely agree with all of these, especially the stroller! Get a stroller pre-ordered to your hotel if on site (i think we used ‘kingdom strollers’). We could not have managed our 4 year old without it. It was covered, it reclined, it held our gear, came with a complimentary soft cooler which had about 4 water bottles. Amazing! Also, Dolphin delivery service. You can order groceries to be delivered to your room on day 1. Get a case or two of water, some pringles, grapes, almonds, milk, gatorade, etc so you have snacks for your room and water for the park. It’s exhausting but amazing at Disney! Parents all have the same look on their face by the end of the day. Everyone was incredibly nice because we were all in the same state of mind. Was not a relaxing vacation but the kids loved it. Hope to go again soon! By the way, Animal Kingdom best park hands down.

    Not going to lie, OKW was nice, but the handicap accessible rooms aren’t exactly accessible friendly. My friend who is in a wheelchair had a hard time in there. And when we needed assistance one of the “cast members” blew her off. So that was kind of a let down. It’s fine otherwise, but if you need an accessible room, OKW isn’t it.

    Question about mobile order and magic bands. I’m trying to find out: when you do mobile order, does it get charged right to the credit card you have linked, or do you pay with your magic band when you pick up your food and it gets charged to your room? I’m bringing gift cards for my food, and if it gets charged to my room, I can pay with the gift cards. If it goes right on my credit card, I won’t be able to use my gifts cards for any mobile ordered food. Just trying to be prepared.

    Unfortunately, one of the social media sites for the cats of Disneyland has incorrect information. The originator of the page has been informed a few times that the names and genders are wrong. When someone presents the correct information, that person gets banned from the Page by the original poster. That must tell you something about the originator of the page.

    The 1st time I got on Soarin over California I had a full blown panic attack. It was terrible. We were also on the top level so I made myself do it again next time we were at Epcot and requested the lowest level. It was much better because I knew how close to the ground we were. I want to experience flight of passage so badly. How high off the ground does the ride vehicle go? Thanks for this video.

      I'm not rich, and I manage to go. It's all about weighing what you really want to do against what you can leave out. For me, staying on property is not a huge priority, so that saves me a ton of money right there. I also park for free in the Disney Springs lot and use Disney transportation the entire time I'm there, so that's more money saved. You have to play around with scenarios and see what works best for you and your family.

    Disney gets rid of paper fast passes. It still sells plastic water bottles. They can negotiate with coca-cola and request that the Dasani water be “bottled” in individual tetra-Brik (similar to coconut water) or alumnimum cans.

    I wonder how long it would take to do all the ‘special’ things/activities that are offered, free of charge, or maybe ALL the special things even those that cost extra.

    As a person who lives in flip flops, that rule doesn’t apply to me. Also, not everyone can do character dining experiences due to funds or being sold out. I recommend Guests to honestly focus on what they want to do and take plenty of breaks in between. Honestly, take breaks and breathe. The parks cannot be finished in a day or even four days. There will always be something missed. Just make a top 10 for each park and attack those first in whatever order you want. Everything after that will be butter.

    Not sure if you have mentioned it anywhere, but for the 2020 dining plan, Hollywood Brown Derby is now 1 table service credit for lunch - but ONLY on the deluxe dining plan. I don't know if they have done anything like this before, but it seems like an interesting solution to signature restaurants that are a bit too quiet at lunchtime, without opening it up to everyone on the dining plan. Wonder if we will see more restaurants doing this?

    So here's the thing folks....if you haven't picked up on it yet in the comments we Chicagoans are pretty passionate about Portillo's. Everything from the hot dogs, the beef, and (my personal faves) the burger and cheese fries (best plastic cheese EVER!!!!!) And OmG that chocolate CAKE!!! We're also passionate about how the name is pronounced with the LL's because 1) that's how Dick Portillo (the founder) pronounces his own name and 2) this isn't just a "fast food place" to us - it's a local Chicago institution that we take great pride in. It's just incorrect to pronounce it any other way. Not a big deal to make that mistake, but yes...we will correct you. And now you know the rest of the story.

    The best thing we learned on our last trip that doesn’t seem to be mentioned much on these videos is to ORDER IN!! When you are back at the hotel, go on the app and order your lunch / dinner there if you don’t want to spend all of the money they charge in the parks. The menu is basic American fare so it’s good for picky eaters but the price is so worth it for the amount of food you get and it tastes good! It takes about a half hour / 45 min. to get the food to your hotel room; I believe it’s made off-site so they have to get it to your resort.

It was not as "magical" at DisneyWorld to be stuck to my phone and it's not fair that only ppl staying in the hotels are the only ones who benefit from a 60 day advance reservation on attractions. Makes it suck for locals or ppl trying to save money by staying off Disney property. Please let the paper pass stay so that it can be fair for everyone visiting.
