    We will be going on the 8 day Bahamian cruise and 1 of the stops will be to Walt Disney world. We have a toddler who normally nap in the afternoons. Is there anywhere to rest in the middle of the day as going back to the cruise ship isn't ideal.

    Ahoy Gina!
    You are just days away from experiencing eight wondrous nights on a Disney Cruise!  I'm sure the bags are about packed, and you are ready to let the amazing crew of the Disney Magic take care of you and your family! 
    On our last sailing, my family was able to take advantage of a day at the Walt Disney World Resort, and we had an absolute blast!  We visited Disney's Hollywood Studios and my seven year was so tired, he fell asleep on the ride back to the ship!  I'm not sure which theme park you will be visiting next week, but I will give you some ideas for Magic Kingdom, and you can write back if you need suggestions for another park.  If your little one will nap in a stroller, I would find a shady bench between Cinderella Castle and Liberty Square to camp out for a while.  The Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant may also be a cool, shady spot as well.  My kids always feel asleep easily when motion was involved so spending some time on the Monorail, Tomorrowland Transit Authority, or the Walt Disney World Railroad may work too.  The Contemporary Resort is within walking distance so you can always stroll over there and find a quiet spot for a little downtime. 
    I hope these ideas are helpful, Gina.  Please write back if you need more information. 
    Have a magical day and bon voyage!
