PassPorter’s custom-designed attraction charts include background, trivia, tips, restrictions, queues, accessibility details, enhanced ratings, and much more! We’ve organized this wide array of information into a consistent format so you can find what you need at a glance. Below is a key to our charts, along with notes and details. Enjoy!

Description Key


Attraction Name [D-32] (Bar Color3)

An overview of the attraction, what to expect (without giving too much away), historical background, trivia and “secrets,” our suggestions for the best seating/viewing/riding, tips and tricks, waiting/queue conditions (e.g., covered, outdoor, etc.), wheelchair and stroller access, height/age restrictions, and Alex’s ToddlerTips (ages 1–4), KidTips (ages 5–11), Allie’s TweenTips (ages 11–12), and Allie’s TeenTips (ages 13–16)—hints and tips by kids for kids!

1 Each chart has an empty checkbox in the upper left corner—use it to check off the attractions you want to visit (before you go) or those you visited during your trip.

2 Map coordinates are presented as a letter and a number (i.e., A-5). Match up the coordinates on the park’s map for the attraction’s location within the park.

3 The bar color indicates the attraction’s target audience, as follows:

 Thrill Seekers  Family Friendly  Loved by Little Kids  Everything Else

4 Icons indicate when an attraction accepts a FastPass+ reservation (FP+) for a headliner attraction, FP+ for all other attractions), or a height/age restriction ().

5 Our ratings are shown on the far right end. An Å-oK! indicates that an attraction is approved as little kid-friendly by our kids Allie and Alex. The three boxes on the right side show ratings on a scale of 1 (poor) to 10 (don’t miss!). The first is Jennifer’s rating, the second is Daves, and the third is our Readers’ ratings. We offer our personal ratings to show how opinions vary. You can also use our ratings as a point of reference—Jennifer appreciates good theming and dislikes sudden spins or drops, while Dave enjoys live performances and thrills. We both appreciate detail-rich attractions.

6 The boxes on the right below the numeric ratings give basic information. The first box is attraction type. The second box is always attraction scope, which we rate as follows:

E-Ticket Headliner attraction; the ultimate; expect long lines
D-Ticket Excellent fun, not-to-be-missed
C-Ticket Solid attraction that pleases most guests
B-Ticket Good fun, but easily skipped in a pinch
A-Ticket A simple diversion; often overlooked

7 Age-appropriate ratings. For example, we may say “All Ages” when we feel everyone, from infant on up, will get something out of the experience. More common is “Ages 4 & up” or “Ages 8 & up” for attractions we think will be best appreciated by vacationers who are at least 4 or 8. This is only our guideline and not a Disney rule.

8 Thrill/scare factor, average wait, and duration follow the age ratings, though we eliminate these if they don’t apply or expand them if deserving. We did our best to format this information so you can understand it without having to check this key, too!
