Kenny the Pirate’s top 5 favorite character experiences – PREP015

I recently had a chat with Kenny of KennythePirate.com and he shared lots of great info.

Kenny talks about how he became the character expert, his thoughts on FastPass+ and his top 5 favorite character experiences at Disney World.

I also have a quick tip about online check-in at Disney World resorts.

These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

  • Recommended FastPass+ for characters: Rapunzel at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom (Cinderella is easier to meet other places), Ariel (meet her early or use FastPass+), unique character options exclusive to FastPass+ that will be coming in 2014 (Winnie the Pooh and Tigger in Epcot, Minnie at Hollywood Studios, Character Landing at Animal Kingdom)
  • Kenny recommends not using a FastPass for Character Spot at Epcot

Quick tip of the day

Lots of people ask if they should use online check-in when staying at Disney Resorts. This is an option 60 days before your trip begins. I recommend doing it to save time at check-in unless you want to ask for a room upgrade.
