When you are in Disney World for a special occasion make sure to ask for a special pin reflecting it from your resort hotel or at guest services in the parks. You could receive special treatment from a cast member if you are wearing it.

When buying tickets of admission to Disney World it is usually bought directly through Disney. But if you are purchasing more than a two day ticket, it is probably cheaper to buy it through the website It is a contracted, licensed, and authorized by Disney World (Other places included, such as Universal and SeaWorld) to sell discounted tickets which are brand new ones.

At the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop in Downtown Disney you can sometimes get free samples of Ghirardelli bars just by walking in. Me and my father did it and got milk chocolate with caramel.

When visiting Disney World it pays to stay on the property. There are several resorts which are rather expensive, but come with specific benefits. However, I recommend that you stay in one of their regular rooms (I stayed in Toy Story) and make sure you get the meal plan! You can eat one lunch, a snack, and a dinner at any of their parks for free!!! (well, after you pay for the meal plan) But the meal plan is SIGNIFICANTLY less expensive then paying for some of the amazing cuisine it will afford you :)
