Quick tip of the day

Listener Kay emailed this tip:
"There’s nothing worse than everyone getting all excited to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with a FastPass+ and then seeing disappointed faces because the ride is closed because of continued heavy rain and thunderstorms. As bad weather is more likely to occur from afternoon onwards in Florida, my tip is that if you have no time constraints around planning your FastPasses, then try to schedule any rides with outdoor elements for the early part of the day to avoid the likelihood of disruption to your touring plans. Happy faces all round!"
