    Hi again! Not quite sure how I'd plan without you! How much time should I allow between OKW and all the parks. Planning itinerary and have 2 nappers with me so trying to figure out nap-in-stroller versus going back to OKW. Thanks so so much!!!

    Hi Kerri,

    If your children are able to nap in their strollers, you are a lucky woman!  I was so grateful that my son napped in his umbrella stroller daily during his first trip to Walt Disney World.  It's hard to predict when a little one will fall asleep for his or her mid-day snooze, so the stroller provides an incredibly convenient place to nap.  Once he'd drift off, we'd just find a shaded or air-conditioned spot to park the stroller and we'd sit there with him, grateful for the opportunity to rest and re-charge our own batteries. 

    Going to back to your room at Disney's Old Key West for naps would be a nice alternative, especially when you are at one of the closer theme parks (like Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios), as it will give your kids the chance to rest in their beds and then enjoy a little pool time before returning to the theme parks.  Be sure to figure that it will likely take you 20-30 minutes to return from Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, especially if you find yourself waiting for a bus to arrive.  The Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom are a bit further from your resort, so allow 45 minutes to return to your room from those two theme parks. 

    Whenever possible, keep your kids on their normal nap schedule while you are on vacation.  It will make for a much more enjoyable trip for everyone!

    Best wishes,
