    We are going to Disney in a week from Sat with a 4 year old girl and 6 year old boy. It's are first trip. Should I bring little toys with us. For the parks for lines? Or is this just crazy? Also can I bring a small cooler to parks?

    Hi Colleen!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    Your vacation is nearly here!  I am feeling excited for you!

    The amazing sights and sounds throughout Walt Disney World Resort will amuse and entertain your young children, but if the lines are long there is absolutely no craziness in wanting to bring something to keep them occupied, and make the whole experience easier for your family.  You may be pleasantly surprised that perhaps you will not need to use the toys, but if you are happy to bring them, you know you have a 'back-up plan' in your bag!

    Coolers are allowed in the parks, up to a certain size. The official website says the restriction is:  coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" (61 cm) long x 15" (38 cm) wide x 18" (46 cm) high. (Coolers required for medication may be stored in a locker or at Guest Relations.)

    If you have any other questions, please come back and ask me - I would be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
