Hi Proud Dad and Scary Mum
I am hoping I've made a little progress as Undercover Tourist do one day passes. We ARE doing all 4 in one day, then both the others on another day. We are the happy recipients of friends' generosity - they have a driver and a private guide so no parking and no queues, apparently they average 28 rides per hour! I agree ideally you'd take more time to take in the sights and feeling, but they are old hands at it so will make sure we get to see the parades etc, and we are having a whole holiday with them which the parks is just a bit of, not the main event if you see what I mean. The tickets are averaging £110 per park, which is eye watering, BUT, Alton Towers is £120 and you'd queue for hours in peak time, so seems a silly opportunity to pass up.
Thank you for ANY input
I am rather intrigued by these friends of yours who average 28 rides an hour!
Each ride typically lasts about 5 minutes so are they in possession of some sort of time machine?
If you're going for a 2 week holiday I really would recommend spending more than 2 days seeing the parks but it sounds as if your friends have it all planned out for you so maybe that's not an option?
There are a number of websites where you can buy tickets in advance like http://www.floridatix.co.uk/
. It tends to be cheaper to buy them in the UK before you get there.
There is also a website called the dibb http://www.thedibb.co.uk/
which gives loads of useful advice on Disney.
Have fun and if you really are going to try and do all 4 parks in a day make sure you take some comfortable walking shoes and plenty of water!
