Well, I know I already have one Disney World post, but this one is more just general notes for me on things that worked and things that didn't.
1. One sit down lunch was wonderful, something
I'll be doing on all subsequent trips to Disney. It took over an hour,
but it was amazing. Just sitting down, away from the crowds, in an air
conditioned environment was energizing. And enjoying something other
than the typical burger or chicken sandwich was a nice change of pace.
My Disney Experience, with FastPass+, was beyond cool. I could book my
fast passes before hand, so rather than bouncing around the park, we
could be more organized. I could see the wait times in the app and
adjust my passes accordingly. Shoot, the thing will work as a compass
and take you to the nearest bathroom!
3. The Magic
Bands are genius. Honestly, I still feel a bit naked not wearing one.
It was the key to our room, our entry to the park, and it controlled our
Fast Pass entrances. You can even set them up so you can pay with

World have built in time killers? We waited 40 minutes for Pooh, but T

5. Staying on a Disney property has me

be taken into consideration. $17 a day down there. Wowzers.

well. There were plenty of places to fill up the bottles, and staying
hydrated is important. I had those 99 cent rain ponchos in there as
well, so when the rains came, we were prepared. I also took some zip
lock bags to hold my wallet and phone, and a pair of sandals for the
7. I say this every time, but a down day
is nice. Our fifth day was very relaxing. We spent just a few hours in
Magic Kingdom, then shopped, swam and packed up for the return trip.
Well, that's it for this short entry. Enjoy!
