Park Passwords
The following text is direct from pages 100-101 of PassPorter™ Walt Disney WorldŽ (1999 Edition) for the convenience of our current readers and for the enjoyment of our future readers.

Admission Media—Passes to the parks. Choose from a variety of passes, described in detail on page 102. Admission media can be purchased at the parks or by calling 407-824-4321.

Attraction—An individual ride, show, exhibit, or event.

Baby Services—Special centers are found in each of the major parks. Most restrooms (men’s included) support diaper changing.

Cast Member—All employees of the Walt Disney World Resort are called “cast members,” even those who never see a guest. Cast members wear white, oval nametags that bear their first name and home town.

First Aid—First aid stations are available at each park. Check your guidemap or ask a cast member for directions.

Guest—You! It is rare to see or hear the words “customer” or “visitor.”

Information—Free guidemaps are supplied upon entry to the parks. Near each front gate is a Guest Relations desk for questions.

Land—An area of a park organized around a common theme, such as Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom or Africa in the Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each land may contain many attractions.

Lockers—Lockers can be found just inside each park entrance.

Lost & Found—Lost items or children can be claimed at a central location in each park. Check your guidemap or ask a cast member for directions.

Money—Pay with Disney Dollars, cash, traveler’s checks, The Disney Credit Card, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Disney Dollars (gift certificates) are sold at each park, resort, and the Disney Store. SunTrust banks and ATM machines are located throughout the parks. Resort guests may be able to charge everything to their room.

Packages—Purchases can be delivered or held for pickup near the front of all major parks, and resort guests can have packages delivered to their room free of charge. Inquire when purchasing.

Park—Disney’s recreational complexes requiring admission, which include the four major parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom) and the six smaller parks (Pleasure Island, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, River Country, Discovery Island, and Disney’s Wide World of Sports).

Parking—About $5; free to resort guests and Annual Passholders.

Shopping—The Walt Disney World Resort is a shopper’s paradise. The three basic kinds of shops are those with general Disney merchandise, those with themed products, and those selling or renting sundries and special items. Special values can be identified by a sign or a price tag that ends in .99 rather than the typical .95.

Strollers and Wheelchairs—Rental strollers and wheelchairs are available just inside all major parks.

  General Park Tips:
  • Study the descriptions and maps to familiarize yourself with the names and themes of the lands before you arrive.
  • Check the Tip Board at the end of the main thoroughfare in each major park. It’s continuously updated with wait times and closings.
  • Plan your visit around the things that are most important to you or require advanced planning (like restaurant reservations or show times). Beyond that, we feel it is more enjoyable to go with the flow from attraction to attraction within each land.
