9. Having to decide on FastPasses and dining reservations in advance isn’t worth it.

Understandably so, many Disney guests are unhappy about having to reserve so much in advance. Advanced dining reservations is one thing that people can more readily accept, but FastPass+ has been harder for people to get on board with. However, assuming you are planning your trip at least a few months in advance, making reservations isn’t really that bad. It’s fairly easy to do online and equally easy to change and adjust said reservations. Take a look at a list of rides in a certain park. Within 30 seconds, you could probably decide which ones you are most excited to ride. Great! You’ve selected your 3 FastPasses for the day. You can change it later, should you change your mind.

Would it be really neat to be able to go to the attraction you want to experience and walk right on with no line, even if it’s the most popular thing in the park? Absolutely. Would it be amazing to choose which signature dining restaurant you’ll have 7pm dinner at at 6:30? Of course. This, however, isn’t reality. I think it’s far more fun to be able to experience and eat what you want, even if that means planning it in advance, than to miss out. This brings us to misconception #10…
