Guide books and websites abound, so there's no need for me to tell you what you can easily find elsewhere. Rather, what I aim to do is give you some of the more obscure tips and tidbits that will maximize relaxation and enjoyment. Likewise, I'd love for you to pass along your expertise in the comments as we go along. Are you ready?
C'mon everybody, here we go...
Right, so for my first entry I'm going to completely contradict what I said above and give you a tip that's in all the guidebooks. BUT this is thee essential key to enjoying the parks with both lower crowds and lower temperatures, so it bears emphasis.
A is for: Arrive before park opening
Setting an alarm while on vacation is a bit of a bummer but so worth it. And hey, if you're staying on Disney property you can set up a wake-up call to get your morning greetings from one of the characters.
The crowds feel heavy as you gather before the gates, but once the park opens, you all disperse and you'll fly through the queues for a good couple of hours. Then you can sit and enjoy an early lunch, Fastpasses in hand, while you gloat at all the suckas first rolling into the park. You are so going to zip past them in the Fastpass lane.
You can bide the 10 or 15 minutes waiting out front taking pictures:

I'm also going to do a related Disney trivia question each day---and there will be a prize for whoever answers the most correctly. :)
