Magic Kingdom-Magic Kingdom Tips

Planning your vacation to Magic Kingdom this summer?

Be thought the gates 30 minutes earlier than the stated opening time. Get strollers and pick up a map and entertainment schedule as you enter. The entertainment schedule is crucial because it gives you showtime and characters meting times for that day.

  1. On Extra Magic Hour mornings, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland open first. Older kids should head straight for Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear while youger kids should start with Dumbo, Peter Pan's Flight, and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh has offer!
  2. On days that are anticipated to draw large crowds, guests are allowed to travel the lenght of Main Street before the park officially opens. On less crowded days, people are usually held in the town square just in front of the railroad. Either way, several characters will be on hand to give the kids something to do while you are waiting for the ropes to drop.
  3. On regular mornings all sections of he park open at once. If your kids are up for it, head for Splash Mountain when the ropes drop, then on to Big Thuder Mountain Rail Road. Both May have long lines even by 9:15-if you arrive to find a 30 minute wait, get a Fastpass.

How to Get Cheap Flights-2go.travel

It used to be said that people are born to travel. This is because many of us like to go places and explore the beauty of other destinations. But traveling is becoming expensive already, especially with the down turn of economy worldwide.
Due to economic turmoil and the rapid increase of gas prices, having cheap flights anywhere has become next to impossible. Hence, here are some useful tips on getting low priced flights

First, always plan ahead. There are a lot of advantages in planning ahead. Aside from having ample time to seek out good deals, airlines also sometimes offer discounted seats in advanced reservations. Most airlines offer better prices when flights are booked 14 to 21 days from the departure date. You can also check research for the best months to buy plane tickets, especially if you know the month but you are just unsure of the date of your would-be trip.

Know the average deals. If you have a general idea about the average prices of plane tickets, you can better bargain for great deals. Airlines give discounted seats most of the time due to varied reasons. What most airlines do is that they tend to reserve some seats which they advertise as discount seats. Other times, they will liquidate most of the seats not filled. If you know this trend, it will be easier for you to make reservations on these discount seats.

Buy directly to the airlines. You can go for the aggregator services when checking out for potential deals and flight arrangements but when you've finalized the dates, go directly to the airlines when paying. An advantage of doing so includes avoidance of additional fees from the 3rd parties.

Although this usually doesn't work for everyone, being flexible with the date, time and airport is really a sure way to get the cheapest flights. You can even get it at half the price just by changing the airport you will be flying in and getting off to.

Avoid the days and time when most people will be flying. Good examples would be flying during the weekdays and flying on the holiday itself, instead of going a day before. In other words, avoid peak seasons if you can. You can also opt to fly later at night or very early in the morning. These schedules are usually discounted because not many people are used to flying too late at night or too early in the morning.

Many people have the notion that going to a travel agent is expensive. Contrary to this, seeking the assistance of a travel agent can produce greater results. Most travel agents are actually paid via commissions from the airlines. Since they have inside information they can even provide greater discounts. However, amidst these deeper discounts, there can also be limitations or restrictions.

Another advantage is that, since these agents are raring to get a commission, they will do everything in their power, and will use all their connections, to please a client and accommodate their needs. Also sign up for e-mail updates. By subscribing to airlines, you are guaranteed to be the first one with information about discounted seats.

Almost all airline companies provide senior citizen discounts. Hence, these airlines also offer low rates in cases of family tragedies and serious injuries.
