Walt disney world tips

Not booking Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

You need a reservation to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The rules of how virtual queue reservations are distributed have changed several times, but the current rules are:

Guests with a valid ticket or annual pass and a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to request access to the virtual queue starting at 7:00 AM on the day of their reservation. This can be done before you leave your Disney Resort hotel or on your way to the park. The virtual queue will reopen daily at 1:00 PM for anyone inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios who wasn’t already able to join a boarding group earlier in the day.Guests must be inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios to access this second virtual queue opportunity, and access to a boarding group is subject to availability and not guaranteed. Only Guests with a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Guests visiting from another theme park will not be able to request to join the virtual queue. Walt Disney World

Ensure you are logged on to My Disney Experience before these times and be quick reservations go quick! If you are park hopping to Hollywood Studios, please note that you will not be able to join the Rise of the Resistance Virtual Line.

VisitToy Story Land early or in the evening

When designing Toy Story Land, the Imagineers forgot to insert any shade. To avoid an unpleasant experience, do not visit in the middle of the day.

Consider skipping parades and fireworks.

Want to ride more attractions? Queues will often be quieter during parades, nighttime shows, and fireworks.

Use the lockers for Kali River Rapids

The previous on-ride storage has been removed. Your belonging will get wet, perhaps very wet. Lockers are free and located near the entrance to the attraction.

Ride Kilimanjaro safaris in the morning

Typically the animals are more active in the morning. However, no two safaris are ever the same; and evenings can be great.

Don’t miss Pandora – The World of Avatar

You probably already know this, but Pandora – The World of Avatar should not be missed. Pandora opened to the public in May 2017 and is inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar. Visit our guide for more Pandora Tips.

Ride Jungle Cruise at Night

This one might seem an odd choice, but again it is a very different ride at night.

Don’t wear new shoes

Make sure your shoes are worn in and comfortable. Did you know the British Queen hires someone to wear in her shoes?

Take advantage if you can of Extended Evening Hours

Extended Evening Hours is a new service for guests staying at Deluxe Resorts. Guests staying at one of these resorts will be able to enjoy extended evening hours on select nights in select parks. A valid Disney Park Pass will also be essential for guests taking advantage of Extended Evening Hours. However, guests may visit with a Park Hopper option as long as the park where they made their reservation has been visited earlier in the day.

Take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry

Extra Magic Hours is not returning to Walt Disney World. We used to think Extra Magic Hours was a waste of time, but think this new resort perk might be unmissable. Early Theme Park Entry will start on the 1st of October. This new benefit will be available for all Walt Disney World Resort guests and other select hotels. Guests will be able to gain 30-minute early entry to any theme park every day. However, you will still need a Disney Park Pass.
