Top theme park tips of the week: Where to start and what to buy
Published: December 3, 2008 at 11:09 PM
From the Walt Disney World Tips:
"Fast passes go very quickly at Toy Story Mania and Soarin. Get there early. Take advantage of the single riders line at Rockin Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest and Test Track. The line is usually short with hardly any wait."
And from Tips for All Parks:
"Oldie but a goodie - Always work your way backwards through a park instead of stopping at the first attraction you get to. You will beat 60% of the crowds."
I've done a couple of media interviews in the past week about annual passes, so I thought I'd throw a little love toward two more tips about APs that you'll find down toward the bottom of that Tips for All Parks page:
"If you are going to visit a park more than once in a year, look into buying an annual pass. Most include discounts on food, merchandise and parking and some can pay for themselves in as little as two visits."
"If you're going to get an annual pass, add parking to at least one pass. It seems expensive at first, but at over $10 a pop for parking at most parks it pays off in the end."
