One thing that all popular rides and attractions in Kissimmee share are long waiting lines. It’s not uncommon for guests to stand in lines for an hour before they get to enjoy the thrill of the ride. Special programs, such as the Fastpass at Disney World, allow visitors to bypass the long lines for a shorter wait time. Still, you may be waiting in line for more than twenty minutes to board a ride with Fastpass.

There are simple ways to make the wait a little more tolerable. By keeping yourself, or your children, occupied while standing in line, you’ll indirectly help the line move quicker. An hour will feel more like twenty minutes. Use these following tips next time you’re at Disney World, Universal Studios, or SeaWorld.

Don’t forget your favorite book or magazine when headed to Kissimmee Theme Parks. It is so easy to get lost in a great book. Your mind will focus on the exciting story in front of your eyes rather than what’s going on around you. It wouldn’t be an impossibility to completely read a book during a day standing in lines! Disney books and informational flyers on area attractions add to the theme of your memorable vacation. My Mom would actually bring a crosswords book and joke book with her every time we’d visit an attraction. A Nook, Tablet, or iPad are popular alternatives to a physical book.

Music lovers are bound to bring their iPods on vacation. The handheld music and movie players are an extremely popular option for park visitors stuck in line for long waits. Download your favorite music before visiting the Theme Parks. Cell phones also work really well in keeping guests busy. Snap creative pictures,surf the internet and Facebook, and talk to friends while you wait for the most popular rides. People watch while walking through Disney World, and you’ll see hundreds of tourists using their cell phones or iPodsto keep entertained.

Snacks and soft drinks are always a great idea when you visit a Theme Park. Chips and candy are nearly always preferred by children. For the most part, it will keep your kids more satisfied than grumpy. By bringing your snacks into the Park, you’re also cutting back on the pricey cost of foods on-site. Be creative and prepare bite-sized sandwiches the night before your exciting adventure at Universal Studios.

Last, but not least, remember to bring the backpack. You can’t possibly haul all these items without a comfortable bag. Don’t pack too much, as you’re likely to be walking around for over 10 hours on a single day. As seen here, you don’t need a lot to keep you occupied during your visit. Ask the staff at Magical Memories for more ideas on what you can do to make long attraction lines more pleasant on your next Kissimmee vacation.
