TripSavvy Travel Piece: Disney’s Solo Rider Line

Love rides like Test Track and Expedition Everest, but hate the long wait times? If you’re willing to ride solo, you can cut your wait time down to under 5 minutes in some cases!

At Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, lifeguards moved in and set up activities for kids that ran throughout the day.

I had the chance to tour the resort, talk with staff members and even chat with some folks displaced by the storm. The Wilderness Lodge ended up hosting people from both the cruise line and Vero Beach – -and even a few pets arrived to shelter for the storm. Get the full scoop over on TripSavvy:
