^^Stay at Hotel Colosseo if you can. An easy walk to the park,
and the restaurants are great. The bar is, too. :smile:

^What Elissa and Bill said.
Plus, after 6 pm crowds will get significantly lower. Between noon and 2 pm there'll be sign at each ride op booth telling you how long the park will be open on this day. The minimum is 6 pm, but reality says that it's never under 7 pm in the summer. We've even had a 9 pm day.
If you want to go to the Food Loop Restaurant, you'll have to make reservations. The line for the reastaurant can be up to one hour plus waiting for your food. Otherwise I recommend the Irish Pub in the irish kiddie area. It's awesome and has a very low line after 1 pm. The other option is what we did for the first time: Ignore the big restaurants, go snacking over the course of the day and go for a larger dinner. There are so many litte snack shacks we've missed so many times - it was well worth it.
Oh, and download the app. Wait times are almost always accurate and so it helps you a lot. It also shows you where you are and how you have to walk to get to your desired attraction.
Any other particular questions? :)

Also you can drink around the world in the evenings; most of the bars in the hotels are really good, particularly the Buena Vista Club on the 9th floor of the Castillo Alcazar hotel (use the lift from reception). The views across the park are fantastic, and there is a little Moroccan-style smoking lounge tucked away at the back. It's magical. The bar in Bell Rock is nice, too. It's good that you can explore the hotels and their restaurants/bars here (unlike Efteling or Port Aventura where you're kinda stuck in whichever hotel you stay in) and there are always fountain shows going on, or nice garden areas to sit in.

Can I park my donkey here?

^
You are aware that this hotel is about fifteen walking minutes away from the real park, aren't you? So you'll have to use the shuttle.

Yeah, that's fine. Walk or shuttle, whatever. Don't matter to me!
