Question Tips for a coworker that's never been to DW

My coworker is going to Disney World for the first time this week! She's celebrating her 40th Wedding Anniversary there! I was wondering if you guys had any quick tips I could send to her while she's down there. Her husband was in the military. I didn't know if they did anything else besides discounts on tickets for military personnel. She's been giving me a countdown for 2 weeks. She's so excited. Any tips could help especially if they've never been.

Subscribe to the LIVE! Guide! If they don't have time for that, point them to the Using Disney Tech forum.

My hairdresser is going for the first time in June. I gave him a copy of the 2016 PassPorter (I have 2 or 3), and he was SO grateful!

If you can loan your co-worker an older one you have, she will be much better off.


Otherwise: explain FastPass+ and Magic Bands (MBs if they're on property; SOG doesn't use them for room keys).

Is she already there?

Don't try to do everything - it's not going to happen - and be prepared for heat and crowds. Don't let afternoon rain showers stop you, just go to an indoor attraction instead.

Just FYI Military can stay at Shades of Green on property (military resort) and I think it might be reasonably priced.

Tips:

Get the My Disney Experience App.
Make reservations at sit-down restaurants before going (well, today!).
Get fast-passes (now).

Plan some breaks...like a coffee or treat break where you can sit and take it in for a few moments.

Let the Photopass photographers capture your pictures (with your phone).
Stay for Fireworks or evening shows.

Have a great trip!!
