    I am coming in January with my husband, but he will be at a conference nearby, so I’m taking the 2yr old and 1yr old to Disneyland. I’m basically on my own. Any suggestions for waiting in lines, and going on rides with super little kids and only one adult?

    Hi there, Denise! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    I am delighted that you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort this month with your two young children. My first thought is to use a double stroller when you visit! This will be the easiest way to get around the parks with both kids. It's probably best to bring along your own stroller, or you can rent one from a third-party provider (the Disneyland Resort only rents single strollers). Another idea is if your youngest is still small enough to use a baby carrier/wrap, you can absolutely where him/her throughout the day. You can even wear the child on most attractions which will keep your hands free to help your older child.

    There are oodles of attractions that don't have height restrictions, so I recommend making a list of your favorites before you visit so you have a plan. Some great ones that I recommend are "it's a small world," Casey Jr. Circus Train, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure. Your kids might also really like taking the Disneyland Railroad all the way around the park.

    Finally, you will most definitely want to use the Baby Care Centers while you are at the parks. These are havens for parents with young children as they have lots of cushy changing tables, high chairs, rocking chairs, and they even sell baby essentials and over-the-counter medications. So stop by when it's time for a diaper change or if you just need a comfortable place to rest with your two kids.

    I hope you have a magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
