    Will be visiting Walt Disney world first 2 weeks of August not staying on disney grounds this time due to a group of 40. For a family reunion. Can you give any advice on park hours and how to manage. Fast pass.

    Hello Arletta,

    The Disney Parks is all celebrating and what better way than celebrating a family reunion!

    You are going to make magical memories that will last a lifetime. One of the best ways to capture your magical memories is through Memory Maker. Memory Maker is digital downloads of your photos. You download them to your computer or any storage venue you choose (flash drive, CD, etc). Then you may print them however you wish. Memory Maker includes photos from select attractions and dining experiences, as well as photos taken throughout the parks by Disney PhotoPass Photographers. The Disney PhotoPass Photographers are a wonderful resource to utilize during magical visits to the Walt Disney World Resort. I love that you won't need to worry about carrying around a camera in the park, because there are Disney PhotoPass Photographers who are throughout the parks.

    As your trip gets closer, check the Walt Disney World website for Theme Park operating hours. The Disney Parks created an ingenious system to help reduce long waits at the most popular attractions and named it FastPass. Your FastPass gives you a return time for later in the day. Just remember to return within this scheduled FastPass+ return time and then enter through the FastPass entrance and not the Standby entrance. This is a fun and free service to use while visiting the Disney Parks. Recently, the famous Mouse, began implementing a new improved program at Walt Disney World called FastPass+. Since you are staying off-site, you will use in-park kiosks to plan ride times upon arrival.

    You will want to have family time together during your visit, but if you have some little ones, think about arranging/trading off babysitting duties with older family members for some "date nights." This may be a fun way for some of your family members to experience the romance of Disney and also bond.

    I hope this helps and that you all have a magical time!
