    We have been to disney and are planning another trip. Any suggestions traveling with 2 kids (10 and 8) boys. Is blizzard beach good? We're going in August is that insane?

    Dear Shawn,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Traveling with kids at that age is absolutely ideal in my opinion! They're old enough to be able to walk around and not need a nap, while at the same time not being too old for the "Disney magic" feeling. 

    Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is an extremely fun-filled way to spend a day! There are so many water slides, body slides, activities, delicious meals, and the list goes on! I highly recommend it. My family never misses a visit there on our Walt Disney World Resort trips.

    In terms of August, that's when we go each year as well. It is definitely HOT, of course, but when you are prepared you're fine. Be sure to drink a lot of water and reapply sunscreen frequently!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
