Every night, beginning at 9 pm, the Electrical Water Pageant makes it’s way around Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. You could go for dinner at 1900 Park Fare (located at The Grand Floridian) and then walk down to their beach and see the Pageant and the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. Enjoy a FREE campfire sing along with Chip at Dale at Ft. It is usually around 7 pm during the fall/winter and 8 pm during the spring/summer.

When you enter a park, you must first go through security. It’s important to know where the crowds are going to go as soon as the park opens. The queues for these rides will be the shortest they will be all day early in the morning.
Bring a bunch of little Disney themed toys with you (from the Dollar Tree) and have Tinker Bell leave one each night for the kids that were good that day. They can advice you on how to get over the counter medications, transportation to the nearest doctor’s office and more.

To make this process move quickly, go ahead and unzip all of your bag’s compartments.

It’s best to get these rides out of the way as soon as you can. FASTPASS is a wonderful program that Disney offers all their guests.
Tinker Bell usually leaves our gifts on the window sill. Disney is very good about taking care of their guests that are under the weather, you just have to remember to ask them! Also the security guard will first check the bag to the person on his left and then he will check the person on his right. At Epcot, they will head towards Soarin’ and Test Track. Fastpass essentially reserves you a spot in a shorter line during a specific hour during that day.
