10 Ways to Outwit the Crowds on Your Disney Vacation

Standing in Line

10. Whatever You Do, Don't Spend Mid-Day Hours on Long Lines

Do anything other than waiting in stand-by lines for attractions during the middle of the day when the parks are busy.  Use this time to use FastPass+ reservations, to have a fabulous lunch, to do some shopping, or to go swimming at your resort.  Your time is finite, and no one likes waiting in lines.  Busy attractions are best seen early or late; shopping, long dining experiences, and resting are best saved for mid-day.

Do you already employ some of these, or are you a "wing-it" type traveller?  Using a combination of these strategies will surely help you outwit and outlast the crowds surrounding you at Walt Disney World, so even if you hate planning, I hope you'll consider trying some of these tips to help your vacation go even more smoothly!
