Book Special Meals in Advance
Seats at popular events like the character breakfasts and teas fill up quickly, so you need to make reservations way in advance. You can do so up to 180 days ahead of time (407-939-3463).
Ask about the Magical Express. No one likes waiting for luggage at the airport, and if you're staying at one of the Disney resorts, you don't have to. Hop on the free hotel shuttle when you arrive, and Disney will send your bags to the resort for you. Make sure you pack whatever you need right away in your carry-on -- your bags don't arrive immediately.
Don't lug around your souvenirs. If you're a guest at a Disney resort, don't bother hauling your souvenirs around all day. The shop will send them to your resort at no charge.
Take some "couple time." Disney has trained babysitters for hire ($14 per hour for the first child, $2 for additional kids; 407-828-0920). They don't just "sit," either -- they go to your room and bring toys and games. Some of the resorts also have kids' clubs at night ($11 per hour).
