Family Vacations - General (728x90)

As a practical matter it is better to arrive early than late. We have found that by staying on the property we could take advantage of special admission times. Then as the park filled up we headed back to our hotel for some rest and swim time avoiding the most crowded and especially during the summer the hottest time of the day. We headed back to the park in the afternoon rested and relax to enjoy the rides when they were not "so crowded."

The Disney dining plan is designed to make Disney money. Although Disney promises savings we have found the opposite to be true. Savings on average are $1.00 or $2.00 per person per day based on a comparison between menu prices and per person costs.
