    Question WDW for Frequent Visitors?

    Hello everybody!

    My family and I are taking a trip to WDW in October. This will be our 14th trip, so we love Disney and are quite familiar with the parks and resorts. I was wondering if there are any frequent visitors out there who have tips as to what we could do while in WDW. It doesn't have to be a ticketed event or cost anything (for example, I think my mom and I might try to go around World Showcase and take our picture in each country with a different hat from that country).

    We've done Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party twice in the past, so we're planning on trying Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. We've also done the Backstage Safari Tour at Animal Kingdom.

    ... so beyond attractions, suggestions do you have for the frequent WDW visitor?

    We like to sneak over to another DVC resort and each lunch or hangout awhile at another resort. If we stay at OKW we head over to SSR and eat lunch and catch a boat somewhere. If SSR we do the same back to OKW and meet up in the afternoon with a friend that works at the hamburger stand. Sometimes we pool hop. Sometimes head over to Wilderness Lodge and eat then swim or read a book in the lodge. Walk the Boardwalk..Shop Downtown Disney..eat a banana split, dance the New Years Party line dance everynight in DD. Listen to Dominic jam out at DD next to the Balloon. Ride monorails..ride river boat.. Catch a launch from MK to Campgrounds. Stand on Beach outside the Poly and watch Wishes or whatever it is now. Plenty to do.

    Hey there you could always pick up a Hidden Mickey book from your library, and go on a Hidden Mickey hunt while u are in Disney. I have been ther so many times and still miss some, and am still finding new ones.

    I always do something silly on splash mountain! 3 years ago my family and I had blow horns and the picture was hilarious! Last year I was the first rider of the day and got a free picture and pin, and got to go to the front of the line to ride it again! 2 years ago I acted like I was sleeping! This year I'm thinking about pretending to dive out of the log bu they might yell at me.......... Hope this helped!

    Have you gotten the Passport Books at Epcot? If you haven't you can get them at Mouse Gear first thing in the morning. What you do is go to every country and have them stamp your passport a rep. there will also write something in it too. It's pretty cool to do this.

    Re: WDW for Frequent Visitors?

    The tours are definitely worth it. I've taken Backstage Magic, the Steam Trains, Undiscovered Future World, and Behind the Seeds. Out of those, my favorite was probably the Steam Trains. As for other things to do...you could spend hours exploring every nook and cranny of World Showcase. Try sipping and snacking around the world.

    If you haven't had a chance to try the Kim Possible missions in World Showcase I'd give that a try. They are a lot of fun, even for adults. Each mission will take around 20 minutes to complete and you get to see some neat interactive things in each country. When you do it each time make sure to use the same person's park ticket to pick up your phone. It will keep track of the missions you've already done so you won't end up repeating a country.
    All your dreams can come true if you have
    the courage to pursue them.

    I have done DiveQuest twice with my son and it is one of the best experiences at WDW you can have. Dinner at the Coral Reef afterwards completes the experience. We recieved our certification at our local YMCA.
