Disneyworld at its best

Recommended Posts

I love Disney I took my little sister there a couple of years ago and totally used this online resource called tourguidmike.com or something to that effect just google tour guide mike disney etc and you will find it. It cost 20.00 to join I think, but you get all the ins and outs of Disney....

 

what are the best days to go (i.e. tour guide mike knows that everyone is at Magic Kingdom on Monday so he says head to MGM that day etc)

 

What is the best way to navigate the park (i.e. tour guide mike says that when you arrive at Epcot everyone automatically starts walking towards the left hand side of the park so you want to start at the right or so on)

 

It literally was the best 20 something bucks I ever spent I had so much fun planning that trip and you really do learn a lot and avoid a lot of wait time.

Do you know about the Hidden Mickeys? That's really cool.

 

And, I highly recommend taking the tour (I'll find out the name of it) that takes you into the Disney underground where the staff quarters / dressing rooms, etc are. My sister used to work at Disney and was a character for a few years, so told us about that tour. It really showed you a side of Disney you have no idea about.

 

And have you ever noticed that if you ask for directions, they point with 2 fingers? Because in some countries a single finger point is considered rude.

It relates to Cinderella's Castle, and while I'm not sure if they do this for all newlyweds (but I would hope they do), this is what happened to us:

 

We had meant to book our breakfast at Cinderella's Castle within the reccommended time (90 days ahead of time), but we completely forgot and when we finally got around to it about a month before, there were no openings. I was disappointed, but wasn't going to let it ruin my time there, so I pretty much forgot about it.

Fast forward and we're finally on our honeymoon, and I've already reverted to my five year-old self and having a blast. We'd been there for about two days when Timm decided to try calling again to see if anyone had cancelled at Cinderella's Castle. It was a long shot, but he figured he should at least try. As luck would have it, someone had cancelled for the next morning. I was so shocked and excited, I believe I may have started jumping on the bed (I told you I had reverted to my five year-old self!).

So the next morning we were up nice and early, and let me tell you, the Magic Kingdom at 8:30 in the morning is quite surreal, the place is EMPTY, and so peaceful! We made it in for our breakfast, and man, is it worth all the hassle. You get your picture taken with Cindrella in the lobby (the price of which is included in the cost of your meal, a nice touch since every other picture that gets taken around the park can cost you a pretty penny), then you walk up a windy stone staircase into the eating area. The breakfast is your standard breakfast fare, but tastes really really good.

As we were preparing to leave however, the final surprise came our way. A waiter came towards our table with a box (about the size of a shoebox), looked at us, and said "Newlyweds?" We nodded, he placed the box on the table, said "Congratulations", and walked away. We opened the box, and inside were two champagne flutes with Cinderella's Royal Table printed on them.

 

Needless to say, I highly reccommend doing whatever you can to get in to Cindrealla's Royal Table, they really do treat you like royalty!

Those are beautiful!! I don't think I'll have any problems flaunting my newlywed status - hey, I can only do it for a short amount of time, might as well have fun with it.

We did manage to book a dinner at the Cinderella Castle, but Cinderella won't be there. sad.gif I'll try your cross-my-fingers-for-a-cancellation method.

Oh, and just for the record, they recommend you reserve 180 days ahead of time (I'm not sure if that's new or not). When I called 177 days beforehand, they only had TWO spots left!!! Craziness!
