    Coming to WDW for firtst time with 2 year old. Bringing stroller for shen she gets tires. Please provide suggestions for what to bring for a long day in Magic Kingdom and how to schedule the day to make it fun for all all.Also how to get parade seats

    Hi Cathy! I'm so excited for you! Your first trip to Walt Disney World Resort is less than a month away! Plus, as added bonus, you will get to see Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of a precious two year old. So magical!

    The stroller is a great idea and will be needed throughout the day. I would also suggest you include a towel or small blanket. Use it to cover her stroller when you are inside an attraction. Even in February, the beautiful Florida sun can make the stroller warm and I don't want her to burn herself.

    The stroller will also come in handy before the parade. We typically find a spot on Main Street, U.S.A. about an hour before the parade begins. Park her stroller there and she can rest or enjoy a snack while waiting for the parade.

    Other important items include: sunscreen, sunglasses and/or a hat if she will wear them, change of clothes in a plastic storage bag, small snacks if needed, water, and any baby essentials she needs. For added magic, an autograph book and pen will be great for when she meets Disney Characters.

    If you plan to enjoy a meal in a table service restaurant, you might also want to include a small toy or something to entertain her while you wait for your meal.

    One of the most important recommendations I can make is to visit the Baby Care Center. Located within all four theme parks, they are climate controlled and are the perfect place to change, feed, or nurse your kiddo. In each of the Baby Care Centers, you will find a friendly Cast Member, private nursing room, changing room with tables, feeding area with highchairs, kitchen area with microwave, oven and sink, and a small shop with your basic baby needs such as diapers, baby food, wipes, and more.  

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
