Based on what has been going on lately, a more thorough discussion of where the CL and wait time numbers come from and what they mean - stressing relativity. Many people - myself definately included - have come to know what a “2” or “3” day is like with regards to perceived feel and wait times. I was there in Nov,( and judging from the numerous comments on the forums and chat I am not alone in this observation) the “2s” and “3s” that I experienced were an order of magnitude larger than even just a few years ago.
Touring Plans for first-timers based not just on wait times, but also on a logical order that one should see attractions (ie: an overview of a “land” or something that shows video clips of different characters before delving into attractions focused on specific characters). This idea just occurred to me as I am currently hosting a 5-year old first time visitor (and an 80+ year old first time visitor) in Disney World this week, so I haven’t fully flushed it out yet. If you’re interested, I’ll email or private message details when I have detailed plans in worked out.
Maybe a simple 1-page checklist covering major planning milestones (ADRs, FPPs, On-line Check-in, payment dates, etc) with a reference to the page/section in the UG that covers that milestone in detail). This might actually be in there already, as I haven’t looked at the “Dead Tree” version of the UG for some time now.
FPP+ and child swap…how they give you a paper FP that is good all day (or even until the end of the month). I wish I knew how to maximize this at the beginning of our trip rather than figuring it out at the end. Also which rides can you wait as a family vs. which ones give you the FP child swap outside the entrance.
I second the checklist idea. I’ve been trying to plan and I’m like … wait, do I do an ADR at 180 days or 190? At midnight or 6am? Oh wait, that’s FPP at midnight - ok, at 60 days, wait does that include the day of…? I did a deposit, when is the remainder due again? Someone help me…
