Will work for tags
Too bad there isn't a place to study the Tag Fairies in their natural habitat, eh?

The best advice I got was to stay on Disney property. The resorts are part of the magic...I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Getting to the parks at Rope Drop. During Spring Break that tip was worth its weight in gold! Walked on to everything in the Magic Kingdom for the first few hours. By the time I had to leave to meet someone in Epcot 3 hours later, it was like I was swimming upstream. It was just a sea of people coming into the park. Nuts!

Here are my top 10 tips:

1. If driving to parks, take picture of where you are parked with either your camera or phone for the just in case your don't remember
2. Take pictures of the back of your ticket with your digital camera or your phone. If you use your phone, send it to your email for a "hardcopy". Lot easier than photocopies...
3.Visit the cool station in Epcot - love to try new samples of cola...
4. Fastpass the main attractions...
5. Go to the back of the main street camera shop. They have cutouts great for taking pictures and sometimes a character or two will be there.
6. Sit on the Goofy bench in front of the camera shop, you might get a surprise!
7. Use a travel agent. They have some great tips and can do lots of legwork for you...
8. Be nice to everyone you meet or encounter...it can be contagious!
9. Use single rider lines if you don't mind getting separated from your party. Usually can meet right up after...
10. Get a Wine Pass to sample different wines in France, Italy and Germany...

'nother Market Basket-er here!

I'm loving the tips...my favorite one, which I need to keep reminding myself of, is to slooooooooooooow down! Noticing the little things can make a vacation just as fun as riding SM for the third time!

I'm going to try really hard to remember this one this time!

We went during Spring Break this year, Easter Week. I was really stressing about the crowds, but thanks to fellow Disers tips, we had a fantastic trip.
Be there at rope drop. They even let us in early and we were on our first ride when the park officially opened.
Go home for a nap and swim. When it got to crowded to endure, we went home for a recharge. Made for a great day.
Moleskin for blisters. I had to really hunt for this but it works soooo great!! I and my daughter both got blisters, even though I walked every day, 3 miles for about 8 months to get ready for the trip. i cut it, put it on the forming blister and we kept on going. It was great!
Hope this helps!

You can usually find it in sporting goods stores like Dick's. And, even though I have never tried it, I have heard that solid deoderant does the same thing.
