    Hello everyone! Im going to disney this week for the first time in more that 10+ years this time with my husband, 2 year old birthday girl and a 7 month old. Any advice on what to take such as strollers, snacks, etc. And what rides are good for her age?

    Hi Jessica!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My sons were that age last year during our trip to Walt Disney World Resort and we all had a fabulous time! Both of our kids enjoy their naps reclined in their stroller and so the most important thing we have on our trip is our double jogging stroller. You will find that you will accrue a lot of miles walking through the parks during your trip, so a stroller that is easy to push, easy to turn and comfortable for you and your kids is essential for a good trip. We have found that having one double stroller, rather than two single strollers allows my husband and I to split up a little easier for restroom breaks or to get treats.

    Every day, I bring with me a large tote bag with all of our gear that is larger than my normal diaper bag and we either store hang it from the stroller handle. Here are my essentials for our day:
    • Diapering gear 
    • Plenty of snacks for hungry little mouths
    • Extra clothes (you never know when your little princess may need a wardrobe change)
    • Empty gallon zipper storage bag with me so if anything does get messy, I can put it in the bag before I put it in my large bag
    • Don't forget sunscreen and hats!
    Your entire family will be able to enjoy all of the attractions without minimum height limits. Check out this Disney Parks Blog post for the complete list of attraction height requirements. My son's favorites were probably Kilimanjaro Safari and Dumbo the Flying Elephant!

    Be sure to check out the Baby Care Centers! They are perfect for taking care of your little ones and getting a break from the hustle and bustle of the parks. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
