Tips and Tricks
- Consider visiting one of the smaller parks first and work your way up to the bigger ones. This means each day will get more exciting!
- Bring a picnic to the parks.
- If you can at all, go to the parks when the kids are not on school holidays.
- Besides seasonal considerations, certain days of the week are slower at the theme parks, usually Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
- Pre-purchase Park tickets if possible. It works out much cheaper and saves time queuing to get in to the parks.
- Do the most popular rides early in the morning, moving to the back of the park first. Use peak times in the early afternoon for eating, shopping and shows.
- Ride lines often slack off towards late afternoon, so save the big attractions you missed in the morning for later.
- Use FASTPASS+ where you can reserve a time for select attractions and character meetings before you arrive at the parks. Even up to 30 days before you travel.
- If queues are long and you are willing to split your group, opt for single rider lines.
- Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and quick-drying clothes to the parks.
- Look out for the discount vouchers. They can be found in shops and restaurants such as the Golden Corral, throughout Florida.
- Throughout the year there can be various free activities for kids (both young and old). Such as the Jacksonville Maritime Museum, and chocolate factory tours in Daytona Beach! Yum!
