Meeting some characters at the Magic Kingdom with my little girl

My little girl and I set out to test some Touring Plan ideas for the Magic Kingdom today and met some great characters along the way.  If you’d like to see the results of our test, just check out my Facebook page.

We were the first people at the rope, but didn't run.  We still ended up being the first guests of the day.  It's still silly that they make you wait 15 extra minutes for no real reason.  They chatted about arrows and Princess lessons.

UPDATE:  I have friends who reported waits in excess of 165 minutes for Flynn Rider and used Fastpass+ to meet them and it took them 90 minutes!

Some of Disney’s most popular Princes made a special appearance today to celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Magic Kingdom.  It was kind of funny, because the Cast Members were either being really coy about the experience in an attempt to keep the somewhat surprise or they had no knowledge who would be available.

Upon reaching the TTC, they had a bunch of pretty red and white Valentine’s Day balloons.  Most of them were totally gone by lunch.

My kids are out of school on January 17th and I’m off work, so let’s go to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!  You’ve heard me say many times that effective park touring begins with arriving at least 30 minutes before park opening (45 minutes or more during the busy seasons).  Here’s the line as we walked up at 8:32 am.Walt Disney World, Hollywood Studios, rope drop And here’s the line at 8:45 am.  The park opened about 8:45 and the line was already beyond the ticket booths.  Why would that matter?  The new Mickey Touchpoints move people through much faster than previously.  Well, it’s because we want to be among the first to go straight to Toy Story Midway Mania for a short wait.
