We spent 2 days in the Park. While it’s a lovely magical place I couldn’t get over the rudeness of people pushing and barging around. If I was going again I’d go during an off peak period. The wait for most rides was over an hour which wasn’t easy with small kids

Advice: dont just go for one day and expect a brilliant experience.This is the most visited attraction in Europe. Disney spend literally billions of ££s on building and maintaining it. You cant just turn up for one day on a public holiday expecting it to be quiet and cheap..dah! Yes, you have to queue. Yes, you have to spend a fair amount of money. Not an unreasonable amount tho - and there are ways of doing it well - see below. This is the best Disney park I have visited having been to Orlando. After the rides - the park itself is actually very beautiful. Its a work of modern art. We spent our last day walking amongst the blossom trees and watching the huge koi swim about in the lake in the awesomely landscaped Adventureland. And who would have thought painted concrete could look so cool?! Thundermountain Railroad is epic - the best rollercoaster I have ever been on (inc. all the US parks - Six Flags etc) - the attention to detail is mindboggling. Tower of Terror etc...all these rides are labours of love - really impressive. As a family, we all loved it. We are not ears-wearing disney fanatics. We are the sort of irritating people who go on a 5 star holiday and spend it moaning about how its more like a 4 star. Sure, you can find loads of things to fault if you want to - e.g. some areas are looking a bit dated/tired (much of the studios is a bit poorly themed compared with florida, but its getting better - e.g. Toy Story and Ratatouille areas are better quality) - but I can tell a big difference in the quality and the vibe since we visited 10 years ago.
You must go for at least 2 or 3 days and stay in a Disney hotel. We stayed in the NY hotel (very dated - very early 90s - made us feel old lol - who cares? you just sleep there tho). This gives you early access to the parks - so you can ride some of the most popular rides early. You need to get meal vouchers - halfboard plus. This means you can go to the good restaurants like Remys - which was great. Note you get breakfast in the park (have to pay extra for the buffet in the hotel) - which we thought was good - because you can do the rides and eat when you are ready, and only pay extra for a big meal if you want. Staying until late, again means you can ride the popular rides without queuing too long. We literally walked onto rides like Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, Railroad etc. - during the Easter bank holidays.
Everyone we met we felt wanted to give us the best experience possible - i dont relate to any of the other negative reviews about not having the 'magic' or whatever. Have these people ever been to a UK theme park?! Our photo pass worked just fine. The app worked fine. Some rides breakdown, sure - that did happen a bit whilst we were there (they are running from 8.30 to 10pm every day all year - of course they are going to breakdown sometimes), but they are normally up and running after an hour or so. The illuminations show at the end of the day was brilliant. Spend the money on doing it properly - take the time to appreciate all the detail and design.

We got a photo pass card on our first of two days and were told to scan them and print within 24 hours. We arrived at photo shop the next day, after queuing that morning for 90 mins for Mickey Mouse, only to scan the card and NO photos found, we’d lined up and got about 6 photos with different characters, our child was in tears and the complaints desk weren’t that interested in helping, offering a few free rides but nothing close to even making up for hours spent in queues for nothing

The other reviews are spot on. No staff goes out of there way to make you or your child’s day. The only benefit is that it is laid out exactly like the Orlando park so if you know that one, you don’t need your map. You can also cover this park fairly quickly since it is so tiny. I saw lots of garbage on the ground- cigarette butts and napkins etc- something Orlando prides themselves on no guest ever seeing trash on the ground. People were vaping throughout the park which really annoyed me since there are children everywhere. I only saw 1 staff member tell a dad he couldn’t smoke in line. The Fast Pass system is terrible and a complete waste- we got there during magic hours (8:30/9) and were given a ride time for 4:30. By noon most fast passes were “sold out” for the day. During our 1 day visit, 3 major rides broke down- It’s a Small world, Toy Story parachute and Pirates of the Caribbean- definitely not good odds. We downloaded the app which helped for ride times but as mentioned in other reviews, sometimes the app and sign outside the ride state one time and are completely wrong. We waited over an hour for Autopia when the app and sign stated 30 minutes. I also felt there weren’t enough food options scattered throughout the park- some restaurants even closed down (pizza place behind the castle). Pretty Disappointed in Disney and the kids agree- they chose to stay at the hotel pool instead of going back a second day! Save your money and go to Orlando instead- it’s 1,000 better and you won’t be disappointed.

Have been here around 8-10 times with my family. Quite an expensive day out but if you're into all the rides there are plenty of them. Have put in place more security measures but what a nightmare! They have a 'no bags' line which was empty, so security were letting lots of people cut through this lane even though they had bags so then they were putting their bags through the security processes in other queues, making them a much longer wait time. Very disorganised and a lengthy process!!!! Very clean park, lots of eating places.
