First off glad you had a great time. I have been to WDW many times and I still really enjoy it. One of the advantages of going so often is that I don't have to jam everything in -- I have pretty much done it all so if I miss something it is not a big deal. One of our favorite things is the Wine & Food Festival in EPCOT -- it is a lot of fun for adults.I'll address your other points:1. Spring break is a busy time at WDW and so it can get crowded. We typically go in September/October/November when the crowds are smaller and wait times are shorter.2. Going at night is awesome. Our strategy is usually to arrive at the park before rope drop and leave around noon -- then head back to the park around 4:30.3. Fastpass is awesome but look for a major change coming soon.4. These apps are cool but only as good as the people feeding the info in. The two that I used on my last trip were "off" quite a bit.5. I agree that Toy Story Mania is a tad overrated -- the problem is that DHS has few rides for little kids so FP go quickly and the wait times are long. What is needed is another "E" ticket attraction for little kids. There have been rumors about a Monsters, Inc ride in the Pixar location of the park so that might help although it is supposed to be a coaster so I'm not sure how suitable it will be for young kids.6. AK is an awesome park but a lot of people miss out because they are just looking for rides. One thing I think Disney should do is drop the "poacher story" aspect of the Safari -- it is dumb and detracts from an already great attraction. There is a major expansion of the park coming that is based on Avatar -- not sure I like the idea but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.1. I assume 5Rings is talking about Magic Kingdom taking an hour, since you have to go through the extra Transportation Center step. I've never seen any of the other parks take anywhere close to that long when driving.3. Sucks that the return window is being enforced now. Could make things run more smoothly overall though. The rumored xPass thing sounds interesting, but kinda risky from a PR standpoint.5. Toy Story Mania may be overrated, but it's clearly an upgrade over Buzz purely from a ride standpoint. I like them both, but c'mon... What they need at Studios is a "Cars" attraction geared toward kids.6. I know the animatronic elephant is being removed from the safari ride to make room for a zebra watering hole. Is the "poacher story" leaving with it? Avatar sounds interesting and seems like a good fit, because of the conservation themes in the film. And a major expansion (rumored at $500 million) is a nice boost for the Animal Kingdom. Also a nice replacement for the "Beastly Kingdom" that never happened.Good points, God and Stu.Yup, I was talking about MK taking an hour. If I didnt wait 90 minutes in line with 3 kids, I probably would have enjoyed Toy Story more. As it was...and hell, that was really my own fault. I went in thinking we could just "wing" it at the park, I don't need no stinkin plan. Changed our tune real quick come day 2 :lol:The other parks were a breeze to get into. The 3D shows at each park were surprisingly excellent.The staff is amazing at each park. Very impressive experience.I was at DW last week for Spring Break as well - 6 day hopper passes and we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge. Me, my wife & our sons (5, 6) and another couple with boys the same age. It was an exhausting week but we had a total blast. The DW apps were definitely helpful to give general wait times before heading across the park (or not) to get in line, but most of the time I found them to list longer than actual times. In general, afternoons were ridiculously crowded and we couldn't get much done. By the end of the week we just went back to the hotel pool after lunchtime and hit the parks again at dinner. Since we stayed on property, we were able to take advantage of the "magic hours" and that was great. Friday night we stayed at Epcot until midnight (9pm - 12am magic hours) and just ran the kids into the ground. Regarding the Fastpasses, I definitely recommend sending someone to get them while the rest of the party hits another popular ride. That way, you (hopefully) hit one attraction with a shorter line right away and can walk right onto the next.
