Default Orlando holiday from Aus

Hi Guys,
Just booked flights to Orlando for June to take the kids to Disney World from Perth. I'm meeting my parents from the UK!
Just wanted to know if anyone has got any hints and tips to make the most of the holiday? We'll be there for 2 weeks.
My boys are 12 and 9.
Thanks, Tracey

Check out this website/forum - http://www.wdisneyw.com/forums/

I've used this when we've visited in the past and it's been great for hints/tips etc.

Have a great holiday!

How fun!

There is a new travel clearance you need for the US. You can do it online, much like the Australian pre-clearance.

The way we have "done Disney" in the past is to make sure we get to the park we want to visit early and stay as long as we can into the afternoon without killing ourselves. Then either go back to the hotel/villa for a break and then return to the park in the evening or if you have a multi pass go and visit one of the water parks. Try not to do too much all in one day..you'll wear yourselves out. If you're planning to eat in the park eat early to avoid as much of the queues as poss.
Have fun...you're kids will have a blast and you'll thoroughly enjoy watching them have fun!
