Ok, photo dump!

@canesisters you MUST ride these rides! Be at the park gates when it opens and rush to Star Wars!
;) Obi Wan approves!

I can give you some pointers, not my own, but my brilliant family. DD down loaded an App called Disney Experience. She could look up rides and wait times. Then GPS laid out a map right to the ride. I heartily recommend it!

Be at Hollywood Studios when the gates open and walk FAST to the Star Wars! We got in 2 rides before the lines got too long on the 3rd one. We did the 3rd ride that night.

Take 2 pair of shoes.

You can take a backpack of snacks and drinks in the park. DSIL had an insulated backpack. It saved a lot of money, not buying park food and drinks.

We left around 2 and went to a restaurant. Better place to spend money and not on trashy food. We rested and went back.

What parks are y’all going to and how many days are y’all staying? Most of all, go have fun!

We went when DD was in middle school. She's going to be 37 soon! We stayed at a Disney property and like you, took one day off. We also went to Epcot and Kennedy Space Center.

What I see in your photos are:
Color, lots and lots of color
Happy smiles and faces

Simply wonderful. Thanks for sharing!!

5 days!!! There are new things since I was there. And 1 day were running over to Universal to see the Harry Potter parks. My friend has been at least a couple of times a year for YEARS. She's a pro. I'm pretty much going to just follow her around & enjoy the magic.

Gorgeous photos!
Children LIE. We went to 6 Flags Magic Mountain and they coaxed me onto a roller coaster saying it was a tame ride. LIARS! It was the one that went forwards then backwards with an upside down loop in the middle - twice. Kept my eyes shut the whole time. Gt ff the ride crying. Have never trusted them since. No longer go to amusements parks.

Glad you had a good time with your family. Seeing the amusement park and rides through the youngest granddaughters' eyes is priceless. I guess you will eventually forgive Rachel. LOL

So do parents! I was in middle school and my dad talked me into riding the Ninja at 6 Flags St. Louis. The part that you can see looks okay: half loop and a twist. What you can't see because it's low to ground behind trees is the double corkscrew at 55mph!
