Are there any resources or tips for people who are local to Disney? By local, I mean people who live close enough that they may choose to drive in just for the evening, people who don’t worry about planning full days, and never worry about hotels.
I have only been in FL a few weeks, and am still figuring things out. My best tip so far was finding the hourly crowds page, and realizing how much the crowds disperse in the afternoons and evenings. some days, the crowds may be a 10 around noon, but drop to a 2 or 1 by the end of the day. So, I may work in the mornings, and head in to a park in the later afternoon.
Another tip, never wait in long lines. You can always come back at a slower time. Yesterday, there were a number of rides that were just walk on, including Pirates and Jungle Cruise. So, why wait in long lines. I have even gone to a park, didn’t go on a single ride. But I did get lots of steps in, which is actually one of my goals, and more enjoyable than a treadmill.
Is there a resource someplace that has collected these kinds of tips for local people?
