    Plan time for transportation between hotel and park, or between parks. We relied on the WDW buses, and it took nearly 1.5 hours to get from the Whoop-De-Doo dinner show (which was great, make a reservation) back to our hotel. Our daughter was exhausted.

    Love all these tips! Along with Disney I would really like to check out the Medieval times show, my kids would really enjoy that.
