Let me start by saying that I have never had a good trip going to WDW last minute. When I say last minute, I mean booking the trip less than a month out. I'd love to jump on a plane and go to WDW sometime in April 2019, but after having terrible experiences doing last minute trips at WDW, I've talked myself out of it. When I say I have had terrible experiences, I mean that I couldn't get any decent fast passes or dining reservations. I consider waiting an hour or more for a ride to be a terrible experience. At DL/DCA I can pretty much go up to a restaurant and get in without a reservation. Likewise, I don't have to plan my rides out in advance either. I'm looking to go to DL/DCA some time in October 2019. I haven't booked anything yet. So I must be doing something wrong WDW wise. If you were going to go to WDW in April 2019, what would you do to make it a good experience? Is this even possible? Or has WDW become a planners' paradise and a last minute travelers' nightmare?
