I second the tip about left hand queue on BTM. The fastpass queue filters into the right hand lane so it can add more time on. Also if you arrive at 8am for extra magic hours do Orbitron first then buzz then space mountain then buzz again. Buzz and SM don't get too busy till at least 8.30 but Orbitron queue builds very quickly. If you hang around they sometimes open Autopia about 9.30 too. On another morning do Fantasyland early. Can't advise best order for there though sorry.
The single rider queue for RC Racer is much quicker than the advertised time. It said 45-50 mins when we were there, the same as regular queue and staff were telling people this as they joined but it was less than 20. The burgers in Videopolis come with a horrid sauce (well none of us like it and it ruined the first meal we ever had there) kind of pink smokey flavoured mayo type stuff. Ask for no sauce if you're fussy like us. You can still get ketchup.

I agree that in Discoveryland do Orbitron first, we never fuss about SM2 or Buzz as we can fastpass them anytime in the day, though we have to ride Buzz anyway as it is DS favourite ride.

In Fantasyland it is definitely DDF - Do Dumbo First (Gill H started that acronym). We normally do one ride on Peter Pan then Carrousel and Teacups.

Sorry not uploaded other tips, fell asleep on sofa watching Mary Poppins with kids last night I know it's too late for OP but hopefully something on it will be useful to others, will have to be later today now.

they send it a day or so before your bday date, so put it before you go and print it off to take.

saying that, i havent received anything from the french site yet but i joined the usa site at the same time and already got my voucher from them.

this US voucher can apparentlt be used at DLP with no probs x
