4. Ride the Mickey-Themed Monorail – this is the best way to get around from the parks to Downtown Disney. Not only is it super fun to ride, it’s a fabulous break on your feet, giving you and your little ones a much needed rest!

5. Search for Hidden Mickeys – we LOVE the smartphone app Hidden Mickeys. It’s a great way to find all the Mickey shapes hiding around the parks. There’s a fee for this app, but it’s totally worth it, you can use it again and again!
