5 things I've learned about Disney World in 2014

  1. Animal Kingdom is almost always a great park to visit, even on Extra Magic Hour days
  2. Extra Magic Hours can be super useful if you have Park Hopper tickets
  3. Separate credit cards can be used for room charges on WDW resort rooms
  4. Fall may now be a busy time to visit based on how crowds were in fall 2014
  5. Rides that didn't used to require FastPasses now often do

Quick tip of the day

There are many Landry's restaurants nationwide and 4 located at Disney World - 2 Rainforest Cafe locations, T-Rex Cafe and Yak and Yeti. If you sign up for Landry's Select Club, you get extra perks such as a $25 credit during your birthday month, priority seating and 10% off merchandise. It does cost a one-time fee of $25 to join, but you get that amount back in restaurant credit within 24 hours of signing up.
