    On Feb 10-12th my husband, 2 year old daughter and I will be going to Disney and staying at the Coronado. I will also be 29weeks pregnant by this time. Any tips for that combo (pregnant and 2 year old)? We've been to Disney several times in the past.

    Hi there, Britni!

    Congratulations on your impending arrival!

    My biggest tip for you in those circumstances is to go easy on yourself, and make sure your traveling party (yourself included - the temptation is very real!) understands that this is not a vacation for running around to see and do absolutely everything.

    Plan to take lots of rest breaks throughout the day, and, in fact, build in a nap or quiet time back at Coronado Springs. not only will you and your two-year-old appreciate the down time, but your husband can take that opportunity to accompany you, or maybe even sneak in a roller coaster!

    Keep yourself well-hydrated and make sure you have loads of healthy snacks on hand to keep your energy level up.

    Find out your family's most important must-dos. Is there a favorite ride or restaurant? Make those the priorities and let the rest go. You've indicated that you have been to Disney several times before; let this trip be the most relaxing vacation-y you've had at Walt Disney World. Likely this will not be your last!

    If you'd like some help planning a specific day itinerary, drop me a line and let me know your top five Disney favorites. We can work together to build a low-key approach to, crowds and weather permitting, getting in all of those favorites with limited effort.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
