    First of all, love this panel. has been very helpful in planning my trip. We aren't using the park hopper. Can you say go to the magic kingdom in the morning go back to our hotel so my 3 yearold can have a nap and go back at night on the same ticket

    Hello Suzanne!

    My number one tip for families traveling with small children is to make sure to take a break each day for naps, swim time, or just relaxing in the room.  The parks can be very overwhelming and breaks are essential to keep everyone happy and ready to take on more magic.  Our children started visiting Walt Disney World at just five and six months old, so we've had a ton of experience with finding the right balance of play and rest while on vacation.

    Your Magic Your Way ticket will allow you to enter and reenter the same theme park in one day.  We like to arrive for Extra Magic Hours early in the morning (our kids are up bright and early, even on vacation) and see favorite characters and ride our must-do attractions.  By the time lunchtime rolls around, we've already done a ton!  We head back to our resort for nap time and then we're recharged and ready to head back into the park for dinner and nighttime entertainment.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions, Suzanne!

    Have a pixie-dusted day,
