What's this? Dan in China? No, just Epcot. Had a great trip to Disney. Here are a few tips and tricks if you are going any time soon:
Do not take the buses from the airport to your resort. They stop everywhere and are a huge waste of time.
Do not pack a "bag in a bag". We had a large carryon that had my wife's makeup case inside and they stopped it going down and coming back. They confiscated her manicure scissors - on the way back. No problem on the way down. Ugh.
Spend more money and stay at a Disney resort. There is a large man-made lake in the middle of many of them and you can take boats to many of the theme parks. There are also tons of activities for the little ones. If there is no boat transport, you can take the buses. The boats and buses are free to ride as many times as you want.
Get an all-pass. This will get you into all four of Disneys parks for one price. The parks are Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and MGM. We had the most fun by far at Epcot. Magic Kingdom is great for little ones. Animal Kingdom was very lame and we didn't make it to MGM. Plan on spending a whole day at any of the above parks if you want to go through the whole thing.
This is a small recap - if you are going soon, let me know and I will give you more tips.
