Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

The best tip I have ever gotten is that FASTPASSES DON'T EXPIRE until the close of the park day.

Grab some Casey's and a Dole Whip, then park yourself down and watch the 3:00 parade from a table next to Main Street. Honestly, nothing better than my favorite food and watching Disney magic float by.

Get to the park EARLY!!! I know it's not easy getting up early, but with the heat, it's a must.
