@meganmarie33: These days you can find so much information online! There was a really great post here by one of the bloggers about her Destination Wedding honeymoon- it was super informative and really helpful! http://www.weddingbee.com/2013/05/10/disney-honeymoon-tips/#axzz2on3tWg2Q
I agree 100% with @beachbride1216: about the Dole Whip! It is THE BEST! The Turkey legs are also pretty tasty if you’re feeling carniverous.
We just got back from Destination Wedding as part of our honeymoon, and we learned a few things along the way. It isn’t super easy to get between parks, which make the Park Hopper tickets a little harder to use. But it can be done, and parks like Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and even Epcot aren’t super big or full of stuff. HS and Epcot are actually connected by a (longish) path or you can get from one to the other by boat. Definitely familiarize yourself with what transportation options are available from each part/resort!
Do you know if you’ll be doing the Magic Band/Fast Pass+ thing? If so, download the app on your phone- I was on it all the time in the parks. With the new Magic Band system you can pre-choose your fast passes and/or change them while in the parks. You only get three fast passes a day though, however, we found out that you can still use the old fast pass system with your “key to the world” card (which you’ll still get because not everywhere has switched to the Magic Band system yet). We learned this a little too late to be able to use it ourselves, unfortunately. But it’s a good way to cheat the system!
Definitely try and catch Fantasmic or Illuminations (in Epcot). Both are super neat shows! You can even fast pass these if you want guaranteed good seats.
Try and make dinner reservations now! And even if some of the restaurants don’t have reservations available now, keep checking. Cancellations always happen. Our favorites were Citricos (in Grand Floridian) and Artists Point (in Wilderness Lodge). The princess character breakfast in the castle was really fun too! Do you know if you’re doing the Dining Plan? It was pretty worth it for us since we wanted to do the nicer dinners. The link above has some helpful hints about the Dining Plan and links to a really great website that helps you decide if it’s right for you.
Epcot is probably the park that is least “kid friendly,” although they do have a couple neat rides. The World Showcase is really amazing though, and definitely worth a walk around. And if you can, try the Grey Good lemonade slushy while in “France”! It is so good. 😉 As for Soarin’, I think I’m in the minority because I don’t love it. It was cool the first time, so if you’ve never done I definitely recommend doing it. But the line will get so long, and it’s not as fun after you’ve waited an hour for it. So fast pass it once or twice, or hop on if the wait time is low. But don’t wait too long for it!
The safari in AK is pretty cool- they have a lot of sneaky ways to get the animals to be near the ride path so there are some really amazing animal sightings! The Everst ride is also pretty fun. AK also has a Dino Land, which has some fun rides for kids.
HS has the Tower of Terror, Rockin’ Roller Coaster, and Star Tours. Definitely fast pass them if you can! The lines can get really long for Tower and Rockin. They also have a really fun Indiana Jones stunt show that is worth seeing, especially with kids!
Magic Kingdom is the busiest park, and has all the classics. If you like the Peter Pan ride, I’d recommend fast passing it because for some reason the lines will usually be an hour wait or more. I love the ride for the nostalgia factor, but it certainly isn’t worth more than a 5 minute wait.
Umm…that’s all I can think of for now. Sorry about the small novel! Have an amazing trip!
