11 Park Tips from Walt Disney World Insiders

6.  Rider Switch Pass

If you have small children who cannot or do not want to ride on an attraction, Rider Switch is for you.  One parent and the little one or ones wait outside the entrance while the other parent and rest of the party go through the queue as normal.  Let the cast member know you are doing Rider Switch and they will give you a Rider Switch pass (like a fast pass).  After enjoying the ride, hand the parent waiting outside the Rider Switch Pass and they go through the Fast Pass line with up to 2 additional riders.  This is so convenient for parents with little ones.

7.  Meals

If you’re on a tight budget or maybe a diet, adults can order kids’ meals at all the parks.  There are healthy choices, plus portion sizes are smaller, so you don’t feel stuffed.  My adult daughters and I order 3 different kids’ meals and have a buffet.  It’s fun, inexpensive, and a great way to sample different entrees.

8. PhotoPass

Disney professional photographers are located throughout the parks so everyone in your group can be a part of the picture.  They will give you a photo pass or link your magic bands so you can view on the My Disney Experience app or web sight at a later date.  These photographers are very friendly, will pose your group or let you pick your own pose, and in addition, they will take a photo of you and your group using your camera or phone.  That’s the Disney touch!
