PassPorter Top Ten Tips

Every month we write a column of Top Ten Tips for getting the most out of your vacation at Walt Disney World. These tips are sent to the media (newspapers, magazines, etc.), to our PassPorter Partners, and to the folks who request more information about PassPorter. We're pleased to also make them available to you here, along with any links to information on our Web site or elsewhere on the Web that may be of assistance.

We invite anyone to re-distribute these tips to friends or family, display them on a Web site, or include them in an article. We only ask that you retain the identifying information (where they came from, who wrote them, etc.) included with each set of tips, and also let us know how you used them. You can e-mail us at
