    Hi there peeps!! Myself and four girlfriends(all in our twenties) are going to Disney at the end of August. Any tips/tricks/must-sees/bewares we should know about? Thanks do much!

    P.S we are doing one day at each park except animal kingdom

    Utilize fast passes for the following rides:

    MK - Peter Pan (and potentially Space Mountain / Big Thunder / Splash)
    EP - Sourin and Test Track
    HS - Toy Story Mania

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort, check out Extra Magic Hours, and make use of them. They are a fantastic way to do rides that often have long and boring queues.

    Take your Friends to the Cool Spot at Epcot, and all of you try a Beverly (it's free, but make sure you are taping people when they try it!)

    Instead of watching the fireworks in the park, you could look at watching them from a hammock over at Polynesian resort. Do this on a night with EM hours for MK, and you can take the monorail back to the park after the show...or, if fireworks are not that important to you, you can skip them and it's a great time to ride rides (almost no lines, even at the big ones)

    Don't forget to program in some time to visit characters, if you all are into that! Easiest way to rack up a bunch of classics quickly is the meet and greet at Epcot (the Character Spot). You'll get to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy.

    If you are all of drinking age, explore World Showcase by Drinking around the World. You will have such a good time going around and trying different drinks from different country with a close group of friends. Most likely, you will run into others who are attempting the same thing and could end up making some new friends. You should give yourself a couple of hours to complete it and plan on spending a little over $100. When you are done, drunk driving will have a complete different meaning for you after riding Test Track (or drunk flying on Soarin')

    LOL - I hear ya!

    2 hours to drink around the world though? That's going some! I prefer a leisurely stroll around over an afternoon/evening - stopping somewhere nice for a meal along the route.

    In my book, drinking around the world should be savoured, not rushed.

    Great suggestion though!

    Bad terminology on my part. By a couple hours, I meant probably between 4-6 hrs to get all the way around. If you make it in 2 hours, someone will most likely have to carry you out of Epcot . I agree with you about going at a leisurely pace. I never knew how much there was to see in World Showcase until I drank around the world. Lots of little nooks and crannies there.

    A short skip and a hop from EPCOT is boardwalk (you can exit using the international gateway, which is inbetween UK and France, and take a water taxi there). They have Jellyrolls (a piano bar) and Atlantic Dance Hall (a dance club).

    I'm afraid Test Track will still be closed for refurbishment when you're there, but this is definitely good advice. Got straight to Toy Story Mania and Soarin' when you're at Hollywood Studios and Epcot because not only at the queues at those attractions always huge, the Fastpasses are often gone for the day by midday.

    Alas, I'm pretty sure much of that has gone away. Last year that whole area was dead when I went in August. They still had live bands in 2010.

    I've heard that the nightclubs have closed. I'm not sure if it's different this year, as I haven't gone yet...but I wonder what disney plans to do with all those empty buildings.

    The night clubs have closed but they still have live music and open up bars with great drinks. I was just there a couple weeks ago and there was a great band and spanish guitarist.
