  • I would have had the Pooh characters at Crystal Palace in place of Cinderalla’s Royal Table. More appeal to all ages and genders, characters that are more fun and lovable, waaaay better food for less cost, and muuuch easier to snag a res. (Yep, we did do the castle breakfast one time. We did Crystal last time and it was one of our best dining experiences ever at WDW in terms of food, ambiance and service.)

  • The People Mover is a great ride for taking a break. Usually no wait either.

  • Glad you like them. I’ll put together another one soon! Thanks for reading and happy planning!

  • I agree with Tiffany. Please do these list for all parks. We have a May 2020 trip planned (our 1st Touring Plan trip) but will probably (almost certainly) be moving it to May 2021.

  • I’ve never had an issue with a long wait for Pirates of the Caribbean, so I would consider that a waste of a fastpass in the FP for all ages category. I would move that down the the attractions that can be done without FP. Of course, maybe I’ve never had an issue with a long wait because of the excellent touring plans I get here. 🙂

    I would also place Hall of Presidents as a place for taking a break. Air conditioned theater, comfortable seats, and sparsely populated makes it a great place for a power nap.

  • Love this! Please do all the parks! Can you also do top 3 non-attraction activities?

  • Noooooo oneeeeeee GREETS like Gaston

  • Gaston must be in the top 3 character interactions. He’s so fun!
