Top Travel Agent Tips for a Better Disney World Vacation

 Partners Statue featuring Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. Walt Disney Word: Travel Agent Insider Tips from Build A Better Mouse Trip ~

  • Think through Extra Magic Hours.  Disney has special “Extra Magic Hours” that allow Disney World Resort Hotel guests.  This is where – on select days – the Disney Theme Parks open one hour early or stay open an additional three hours after closing to the general public  A lot of Disney hotel guests plan an itinerary that includes every Extra Magic Hour but this isn’t always a good idea.  For one thing, the Extra Magic Hour park is always the most crowded park of the day so you may actually enjoy more attractions with shorter lines by going to a less crowded park, especially during peak travel seasons.   The parks generally open at 9:00AM, so the Extra Magic Hour begins at 8:00AM – which means that you need to leave your resort by 7:30AM – at the latest – to take advantage of this early opening.  Will your family be interested in getting up that early – especially if they were up late watching fireworks the night before?   Epcot stays open until 9:00PM every night and the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are also often open late.  Will your little ones really be able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours that begin at 9:00PM or later?   We’re not saying that you should always avoid Extra Magic Hours – we just want you to consider crowds and the potential for exhaustion levels when you plan your Disney vacation itinerary.
  • Disney Theme Park Touring Plans – Did you know that people who use theme park touring plans generally cut their time spent in line by 3 hours per day during the busy summer season?   A touring plan is simply using good information to see and do everything that is important to you in a way that minimizes lines and long waits. We are so convinced of the value of a good touring plan that we provide them free to anyone who books their vacation through us. For more information, see: http://www.buildabettermousetrip.com/freetouringplans.php
  • Book T-Rex, Rainforest Cafe, and Raglan Road reservations directly through the restaurants, rather than through Disney dining.  Communication has never been good between these three restaurants and the Disney Dining Reservation system.   Call the restaurants directly, if you’ve been having trouble getting a reservation:   Phone numbers: Raglan Road – 407-938-0300 / Rainforest Cafe (Animal Kingdom) – 407-938-9100 / Rainforest Cafe (Downtown Disney) – 407-827-8500 / T-Rex – 407-828-8739.   These restaurants all participate in the 2012 Disney Dining Plans.
  • Having trouble getting your favorite Disney theme park restaurant reservation?   Go to the restaurant podium as early as possible on the day you’re in that park.  They’ll be able to check for last minute cancellations and may be able to give you a spot, if you can be flexible with dining times.
  • Need to check in for your return flight 24 hours before departure? The guest services desk at the Disney theme parks or the concierge desk at your Disney World resort hotel can help you check in for flights and can even print boarding passes but be sure to bring your airline confirmation number with you.
  • Don’t carry souvenirs & purchases all day – Disney offers package pick-up service at each of the Disney theme parks.  Anything you purchase during the day (cut-off time applies) can be sent to a pick-up desk at the front of the park.  You retain your receipt so there is no worry about lost items.   Guests staying at the Disney World resort hotels can have the items sent to a pick-up area at their resort – they’ll arrive the following day so don’t use the resort delivery service on your day before heading home.
  • Disney Rider Switch Passes for families with small children – Did you know that Disney offers Rider Switch Passes for families that have members who cannot ride a height restricted attraction?  This allows one family member to stay with the non-rider while everyone else rides, then you can switch and the person who waited can ride without having to go to the end of the line.  Disney knows that no one wants to ride alone so the rider switch pass is good for 2-3 riders.  You can read all about it at http://www.squidoo.com/WDWBabySwapPass
  • There are lots of things to do at Disney World that don’t require a theme park admission ticket.  See our list of free things to do at Disney World at http://www.squidoo.com/free-activities-at-disney-world
  • Get schedules for Disney World live entertainment (shows, street performers, etc) at www.wdwent.com
  • Free Activity: Staying at a Disney Resort?  Find out what outdoor movies will be shown at your resort during your stay at http://www.buildabettermousetrip.com/activity-outdoormovie.php

Disney World Refurbishment Sign Disney World Temporary Attraction Closures & Resort Refurbishments for August 2012:  

One of the great things about summer is that Disney tries to keep ride closures to an absolute minimum so that there are lots of attractions for people to enjoy.

  • Magic Kingdom: The big Fantasyland expansion is well underway and has changed the places you go to see some of your favorite characters. You can see the Little Mermaid characters intermittently at the Adventureland Verandah Porch (check your theme park times guide) but please note that Ariel appears in her human form here and does not have fins.

Disney World in August – Crowd Warnings, Tips, & Discounts

Entrance Sign to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.

Disney World Crowd Warnings & Tips for August 2012:

  • Summer Vacation means lines and crowds. The first two weeks of August will see peak crowds (an 8- 10 on a crowd scale of 1-to-10). A good touring plan will keep you ahead of the crowds and out of the long lines.
  • Avoid Extra Magic Hours! We recommend that everyone avoid the Extra Magic Hours during the busy summer season. Disney has 33,000 hotel rooms and no one goes to Disney alone – that means too many people are pointed in the same direction at the same time. You’ll have a much nicer time by going to a less busy park. This is doubly important if you are not staying at a Disney resort – you don’t want to get to the theme park and find a bunch of Disney guests in line in front of you.
  • Fantasmic! (Disney’s Hollywood Studios) – This great show is presented every night in August. Most nights (August 1 – 25) will have two performances and the second performance is always less crowded than the earlier show. Warning: This show is excellent but it does feature villains for a good 8-10 minutes. The scene is a little intense and can be frightening to small children.   If you’re concerned about your child being frightened, you can preview the show at http://www.squidoo.com/Fantasmic-at-walt-disney-world
  • Main Street Electric Parade (Magic Kingdom) –This parade is offered August 1 – 18, 20, 23, 24, 25, 27, 30, 2012. The following dates do not have a nighttime parade: August 19, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29 & 31. The Main Street Electrical Parade will be offered twice on August 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 16, & 17 – the second (later) parade is always less crowded than the first one.
  • Avoid Character Breakfasts during August! – The theme parks will be at their least crowded and coolest when the parks open. It is far better to book a lunch or dinner reservation that gets you out of the direct sun and out of the crowds a little later in the day. If you’re really looking forward to a character breakfast, try a resort character breakfast before going to the water parks or on your departure day. Another option is to book the latest possible reservation and treat it like brunch, rather than breakfast.
  • A good touring plan is absolutely essential during this busy travel season. There will be lines that are well over an hour long but you don’t have to stand in them to see and do all of the things that are important to you. We provide three choices for custom touring plans – the most recent edition of the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (book), a subscription to TouringPlans.com, or a subscription to Tour Guide Mike (online service) – at no charge to you when you book your trip through Build A Better Mouse Trip. For more information, see: Walt Disney World Theme Park Touring Plans  

Disney  Discounts & Promotions – You can still save money on your August trip to Disney World.

  • Disney World Late Summer Savings Offer for August 15 – September 29, 2012 – Must book by August 14.

Walt Disney World Resort in August 2010 – Crowd warnings, special events, ride closures and refurbishments

The first two weeks of August are still busy at Walt Disney World but crowd levels slowly decrease through the second half of August as kids head back to school. The weather can be hot and humid but, by doing a little advance planning, you can still plan on having a great time on your WDW summer vacation.

Crowd Warnings for Your August 2010 Trip to Walt Disney World Resort

1.)     Summer Vacation means lines and crowds. Sure, people are worried about the economy but Disney responded by offering some great promotions. Families will still be flocking to Walt Disney and the first two weeks of August will see peak crowds (an 8- 10 on a crowd scale of 1-to-10). A good touring plan will keep you ahead of the crowds and out of the long lines.

2.)    Fantasmic! (Disney’s Hollywood Studios) –This great show is no longer presented every night. It will be offered August 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26, 29. This is a very popular show and we highly recommend it – arrive at least 60 minutes early, if you do not have a Fantasmic! Dinner package. Warning: When there are limited performances, you know Disney’s Hollywood Studios is going to be busier on days featuring a Fantasmic! show. Afternoons will be especially busy as those with Park Hopper tickets come over to see the show. You’ll probably want to catch Fantasmic! so be sure you have a good touring plan that will help you manage the crowds and you’ll be fine. Warning: This show is excellent but it does feature villains for a good 8-10 minutes. The scene is fairly intense and can be frightening to small children.

3.)    Main Street Electric Parade & SpectroMagic Parades (Magic Kingdom) – The Main Street Electric Parade is offered every night through August 14th. The SpectroMagic Parade will be presented on August 15 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24,26, 27, 28, 30. The following dates do not have a nighttime parade: August 22, 25, 29, 31.

4.)    Extra Magic Hours – (Special hours only available to Disney resort hotel guest)! We recommend that everyone avoid the Extra Magic Hour park of the day during the peak summer travel season. Disney has 33,000 hotel rooms and no one goes to Disney alone – that means too many people are pointed in the same direction at the same time. You’ll have a much nicer time by going to a less busy park. This is doubly important if you are not staying at a Disney resort – you don’t want to get to the theme park and find a bunch of Disney guests in line in front of you.

5.)    Free Dining Promotion – this promotion is offered to keep guests coming during hurricane season and after school is back in session. The crowds in the parks are moderate but this promotion really impacts the availability of dining reservations. Book your dining reservations right away.

 Special Events at Disneyworld in August 2010

1.)     Summer Nightastic! Special events in the Disney theme parks through August 14th. Magic Kingdom Theme Park – the “Main Street Electrical Parade” and the “Summer Nightastic Fireworks Spectacular”, led by Tinker Bell, is offered nightly. Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Twilight Zone Tower of Terror will have new lighting effects created especially for Summer Nighastic!. “Rock N’ Glow Dance Party” in the courtyard near the Rock’n Roller Coaster.

2.)     Last Tour To Endor – August 14th, 2010 / 8:00PM – 1:00AM (Disney’s Hollywood Studios) – The Star Tours attraction will be undergoing a major re-imagineering and will reopen in 2011 but before it does, there will be a special event on August 14th with specially themed intergalactic party zones, Star WArs shows, Death Star Disco, and a Stars Wars fireworks spectacular called “Symphony in the Stars”. Costumes are encouraged. Event tickets are $75 each. For tickets: http://www.starwarscelebration.com/en/Events/Disney-Event/

3.)    DREAM OUR DREAMS – A Musical Tribute to the Legacy of Disney Benefit Concert- August 6,7 & 8 @ 8PM. Matinee performance at 2:00PM on August 8th (Epcot). Encore! Cast choir & Orchestra will perform in Epcot’s World Showplace. This special concert is a benefit for the “Make A Wish Foundation” and requires a special ticket. Tickets are $15 each, if purchased in advance through the website at http://encorecentral.org/  . Tickets are $20 (cash only) at the door.
