Tips for Managing and Avoiding Lines at Disney World


We’ve been enjoying our passes to Disney World and some of you have asked me to share some tips to make visiting Disney with kids more fun – and less stressful.  Admit it, the one thing that you dread is standing in line for hours on end with kids who are bored.  One of the advantages of living in Florida and having passes is that we don’t have to do everything in one trip.  Enjoy this short video with some of our tips for avoiding lines, skipping lines, and entertain your little one’s while waiting in lines.

Tips for Avoiding and Managing Lines at Disney World

Avoid lines!

  • Pick the popular rides that you want to see before you get to Disney.
  • Do those popular rides early in the day, late in the day, or during a slow time (like during parades and fireworks).
  • Get a Fast Pass for popular rides to avoid standing in lines.

Things to do with no (or little lines):

  • Every park has a few rides that aren’t as popular (or new) that will have less wait times.  Our favorites include Mickey’s PhilharMagic and the Carousel at Magic Kingdom.
  • While visiting Epcot the parents like to stroll around the World Showcase (which has only a few rides).  Let the kids take the Phineas and Ferb; Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure while you enjoy the food and drink in the different countries.  Kids can pick up a cell phone at several locations in the Showcase and go on their own adventure within the countries.

Entertaining the kids while waiting in lines:

  • Hunt for Hidden Mickey’s while waiting in line.  You can either hunt for them on your own or find clues on or by using the Hidden Mickey iPhone app.
  • Act or talk like the characters from the ride you’re waiting in line for.  Our favorite is talking like pirate’s while waiting in line for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Our families best tip is to try and relax and have fun while at Disney.  Neither you or your kids will have much fun if you’re standing in line all day miserable.  Make the most out of your time and make it magical!

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as considerably as this one. I mean, I know it was my selection to read, but I actually thought youd have some thing interesting to say. All I hear can be a bunch of whining about some thing that you simply could fix if you ever werent too busy looking for attention.
