If you’re headed to Disney World, you’re probably excited to go to the parks and get on all your favorite rides, but you’re not looking forward to the lines. Well the Cast Members don’t want you to wait on those lines either. They’re trying their hardest to get you on as quickly and effectively as they can. If you are stuck on a long line near a Cast Member ask them if they know any trivia. A lot of times the Cast Members have trivia about the park or their ride, thinking about the answers could make your time pass a lot faster! Also take a good look at the decorations and read carefully, everything was decorated that way for a reason! Cast Members also may be able to let you know if there are any hidden Mickey’s on their attraction and where they might be.
Now if you’re really impatient and don’t want to wait you also have a few options. You could ask the Cast Member when the best time would be to get on the ride, a lot of the time the answer will be during fireworks, parades, or while it is raining if it is an outdoor attraction. Or they could give you helpful tips about using Fastpass or single rider lines. Cast Members know the times their rides are the busiest. They also know when the rides are basically empty why not ask them when you could get on?
Remember although Cast Members are not the typical characters you’re used to, they are in costume too and therefore are also part of the experience. They’re there to entertain and help you enjoy your vacation. Every Cast Member has their own little bit of pixie dust that Tinkerbell was kind enough to share with them. So be nice to them and they’ll spread the magic with you!
Until next time my allergy friendly friends, have faith and trust in the magical world of Disney dining, and may Tinkerbell sprinkle your day with pixie dust!
