Disney World - Any advice or tips on what to see and do?
I am going in 2016 and want to be prepared.
Research best days, time of day and months to go. If you go during busy phases, the crowds can be a real downer, especially during the summer. Standing in a long line in a hot sun is no fun at all.
One tip: some people make sure they get there right before the park opens.
When the gates do open, they bolt (like we did) to the most popular rides in the middle and work their way to the back of the park because most people will simply get in line at the rides by the front of the park and then start to work their way to the back.
Going beyond the rides in the front usually means shorter lines (or sometimes no lines) for the rides in the middle.
We have been several times and have learned the following:
1. Get an early start and eat your main meal at lunch. This gives everyone a break. Then, when most people are eating their main meal in the evening, the lines to the rides are much shorter.
2. If there are two back-to-back showings of something, like the Parades, plan on the second, you will not have to get there as early or wait as long because the gap between the two showing are short.
3. Be prepared and know that virtually every major ride exits into the gift shop.
It is a great place to visit. Have a good time.
There is a book I read recently called something like 'the hidden secrets of walt disney world' which is a great resource for finding some of the lesser known spots in the park, though it's mostly display stuff, not rides or shows. If crowds are a concern, I highly recommend getting a fast pass bracelet/card. It allows you to sort of schedule your rides, which significantly cuts down on wait times. You're limited in how many you can use per day, but it's worth it. Use them for the busy rides and wait in line for the less popular ones. Also, if you're looking to get into the park earlier, make a breakfast reservation at the park you want to visit. You're permitted into the park early if you have a reservation at one of their restaurants. After you're done eating, you're free to explore, even if the gates haven't officially opened yet.

Is a trip to Disneyland worth the money?I have never been to Disneyland but as a kid I always wanted to go. I now have a young son and have thought about taking him. However, I have also heard that you pay a lot of money to stand in lines all day. Has anyone ever been and did you and your kids...
