re: Give me your Disney Pro Tips - convertedtiger
Here is a real Pro Tip. Bus to Magic Kingdom. Then walk across the street to The Contemporary and take an Uber/Lyft/ Minnie Van back to Pop at the end of the night. With the surge that will be on at that time, they will all be about the same price. :cheers:...

re: Give me your Disney Pro Tips - convertedtiger
