Ways to have thrifty theme park thrills - Arrive early.
Make the most of your money by arriving when the theme park gates open. "Go early in the day to take advantage of smaller crowds and the ability to see and do more," says Nancy Bobby, Disney travel agent at Destinations in Florida Travel. "You want to be able to get the most value out of time spent on site."
"With shorter morning lines, you'll be able to go on more rides. Late evening can also offer the same experience, if you don't mind waiting," Bobby says. Also, some parks offer discounted hours in the evenings.
