What a mad morning! We were raring to go at 8am, only to discover that Islands of Adventure didn’t actually open until 9am. At least the sister theme park opened an hour earlier, so we could power-walk over for an hour of fun before our morning properly began. We managed to get on every ride we wanted before we even stopped for lunch. Yes, we were two sisters on a mission.

Watch our exploits in today’s vlog and then read on for my tips and tricks.

It’s currently around 120 days until I go to Disney so there’s still another 60 before I can book our fastpasses, but this is still something I’ve already started to think about because I’m so obsessed with this holiday.

Fastpass+, the system that allows you to go in a much shorter attraction line at Walt Disney World, may sound simple. You can pick three rides or attractions in advance, you’re given specific times to go back to these attractions, and you get to smile smugly at everyone waiting in the regular line as you step right onto the ride.

There is a lot more to the system, though. From getting your fastpasses at the best times, to picking the best attractions, it’s not too difficult to maximise what you can get out of the system.

Lately I’ve heard of people choosing to fastpass rides that rarely have wait times of over 20 minutes, which is a bit of a waste. For example, at Epcot you can fastpass either Test Track, which often has a wait of over an hour, or Living with the Land, which rarely takes longer than ten minutes to get onto. If you think strategically, you can get even more out of your Disney trip. Here are all of my top tips for you.
