    Spending 4 nights in Disney April 12th...SPRING BREAK...any tips on dealing with what I expect will be high volume of guests? We've always gone off season before.

    Hi Stefanie:

    Like any popular destination, you'll likely have to spend time waiting on some lines during your vacation.  The good news is that if you have to wait on line anywhere, Disney World is the place to do it since their queues are typically well-themed.  But to make the most of your time, I would utilize these time-saving techniques to try to avoid as many lines as you can: (1) use FASTPASS+, Disney's free service that saves your place in line for an attraction while you enjoy the rest of the theme park, (2) take advantage of Rider Switch on select attractions (allows guests with youngsters too small to ride to take turns riding the ride. The guest waiting with the child can then "swap" with the other adults in their party to ride the attraction without waiting on line again) (3) use single-rider lines if you do not need to sit next to party members on rides, (4) arrive at the park early (pre-opening) when the crowds are smaller and lines are shorter, and (5) utilize Extra Magic Hours if staying on property. 

    Enjoy your vacation
