    Hello! We are coming to WDW November 30-December 7. I will be bringing my 2 year old and 5 year old. How do we need to dress? Any other tips with little ones? We also have tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! Can't wait!

    Howdy Cassie!!! I am so excited for you!! You will be at Walt Disney World Resort during my favorite time of year.

    You are going to love Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!! The day of the party, try to build in some time to rest so that you can enjoy as much of the party as possible.

    Packing for this time of year can be a bit of a challenge. There have been some trips that we have been in shorts and t-shirts and others that we needed jeans and jackets. Typically, though, the weather has been great and similar to what you will find at home. There will be plenty of photo opportunities so you might want to try to coordinate your outfits.

    Be sure to pack any age appropriate and doctor recommended medicine that you might need. Hopefully you won't need any of it but it's better to be safe than sorry.

    There are Baby Care Centers at the 4 theme parks that are wonderful areas that are free of charge to use. Great locations to change your toddler if needed. They also have a small area where you will find a variety of items available for purchase: food, medicine, diapers, swim diapers and more.

    Be sure to pack a small blanket or towel to cover your stroller when you are inside an attraction. The strollers get hot in the sun and the towel or blanket will protect sensitive skin.

    Sunglasses are another must have though my two little ones never kept theirs on. Be sure to have sunscreen on hand as well.

    When my kiddos were younger, we pre-packed their clothes in plastic quart size bags; one outfit per bag. Each day, we placed a bag of clothes for each child in our backpack. If either of our children needed to change their clothes, we would grab a bag, change them and then place the dirty clothes in the quart size bag.

    I hope this will help you in your planning. Please let me know if you need any further information. So excited for you! I know you are going to have a magical vacation!!
