Anyway of getting free upgrades on Disney tickets?

I want this to be our family vacation of a lifetime, so we are staying at the Contemporary. "We", are my wife & I, a 7yr. old, and a 15yr. old. Anybody have any secrets to help make this more enjoyable & smooth? I've heard about the character meals & stuff, but which one(s) do you pick? I heard you might get free upgrades on tickets after registering, so I booked it with the base package, in hopes of that. Anyway of making sure I can get these? I already asked, and they said no, not right now, like they may have some in the future. How long should I wait before upgrading to the park hopper? Has anyone ever been given a free dining upgrade? How about the best place to get a guide, to try and "map out" our days before we get there? Anybody know the best website to get answers? There seems to be so many, which ones' are the best?
Alot of questions, sorry, but any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Kelvin

The first thing that you should have done is to but "THE UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO WALT DISNEY WORLD" . This book costs about $20 and you would have saved that already. Disney is not in the habit of giving away or upgrading anything. Let me give you an example of how ridgid they are.

On a recent trip to WDW in Jan/07 we were eating at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. The meal is a character meal with Pooh and the rest of the Hundred Acre Woods. A lady wanted to just quickly go in and take a couple of pictures. They told her absolutely not. The lady was visibly upsetand asked to see the manager. I thought it was pretty chincy myself. The manager came out and talked to her and it went like this. "Look, everybody in there are paying hundreds of dollars to have a nice meal and be able to see the characters. It wouldn't be fair to them to let you in for free and get the same pictures they are paying for.

The book will dispell a lot of myths about WDW.

How do i become a Disney star ? I’m 12 years old and i Live in Newfoundland, Canada. It’s been my dream since i was 6 to be an actress on popular shows like Hannah Montana, or Cory in the house. i have little experience but I’m willing to get more. I’m too scared to tell my mom or my friends about this because every time i have they’ve said ” you’ll never make it ‘ and they laugh . Can someone please guide me through this to actually make it to an audition please ?

Disney books!?

Good morning!!

I have a question does anybody know about the "Ultimate Disney World Savings guide", is it good or not, should I bought it?!

oh, and another thing hihihi, anybody knows a book that talks about "what really happend inside of the WDW theme parks!? I heard that an ex cast memeber wrote a book about that!

Yes to both books – get them both at your local book store. The Ultimate Disney saving guide – is great for both you and the kids – it gives u tips, places to go, where is the best place and easist place to see characters, etc. U will have a great time with this book and get more out of ur trip with it.
The cast member book – ya its out there – never read it – but I know about it – its entertaining – at least to me it is -since i worked there too once upon a time! 🙂

Have a great time!

How much of disney world can I see for a 5 day/4 night stay…?

It's me(15), my little sister(11), big brother(21) and parents(in their 40's) and we're going on the 2nd week of august. We're staying on disney property so we'll take advantage of the magical hours.We're also doing fastpass but not park hopper. We'll be leaving the night before and arrive there in the morning but they said our room won't be ready until 3pm, so I guess we can relax for a bit then go to one of the parks for a few hours that day. Is one park a day enough time or are we rushing it? And of course we'll be taking breaks, going back to the hotel and finding places to eat and cool off, so some advice could help and I have the "Complete Idiots Guide to Disney World" book, so i'm looking for some help there too.If you click on my name you can see my other question about disney world with all the places me and my family wants to visit and see.(Don't mind the 6 day stay because my mom changed her schedule again).

THX everyone!

Even with a longer stay, it would be hard to do everything that Disney has to offer, that is one of the reasons so many people go back year after year. That said, you should be able to do each of the major parks and hit the best of the attractions within your stay. You are going during the busier and hotter months, so you may want to hire an itinerary and touring plans service. We have used Custom Mouse Plans and they are great! They planned our trip so that we were in the least crowded park each day. Then they did touring plans for each of our park days that kept us out of the long lines and made sure we hit all the big rides. We never waited more than 10 minutes for any ride, even on New Year's Day! The plans were so great that I have hired them for 3 trips and I will keep on hiring them for all my trips!
Have Fun!
