7. Make advanced dining reservations
Even on a day with average crowds, making advanced dining reservations is the best way to make sure you’ll get a table at some of your favorite Disney restaurants. On a crowded day though, your chances of getting a table without a reservation are even more slim. Moreover, knowing you’ll have a table to relax and enjoy dinner (and get a break from the crowds) and that can make all the difference during a long day in the parks!
8. Pack your patience
Even with the best strategy in mind, dealing with a crowded day at Disney is a lot, especially for kids. Young kids are particularly prone to meltdowns when parents are stressed from the crowds. Plan your priorities in advance to avoid disappointment if you can’t get to everything, and pack your patience to ensure everyone has the best day at the park. On the plus side, if you can’t get to everything in this trip, it’s just another excuse to plan your next Disney vacation!
