    First off I'm obsessed with Disney World, I've been to Disney ALOT in the past two years but now I have a daughter. When we go she will be one year old exactly and i wanted to know who how it is traveling with a kid that young do you recommend i? any tips?

    I also share your love of Disney, Amanda! As much fun as it can be going to Walt Disney World without kids, there's just something about seeing the "Magic" through your children's eyes that you know you are truly someplace special! We have taken our children at five months, 18 months and two-years-old.I definitely think you will enjoy having your daughter with you especially since you have traveled to Disney yourself many times.My biggest piece of advice would be to stay on property!This will allow you to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, use of Disney's complimentary transportation, package delivery to your resort, charging privileges to your room, and the added convenience of being able to go back to the resort for midday/breaks or naps. When touring the parks, Disney thinks of everything for families with "little ones." We always take advantage of Rider Swap at attractions that have a minimum height requirement. Rider Swap is when Guests take turns waiting with youngsters too small to ride a certain attraction, then "swap" with another adult Guest from their party to experience the ride without standing in line twice.There will be many attractions that you can take your "little princess" on with you such as "it's a small world", Peter Pan's Flight, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh just to name a few. Baby Care Centers are located in all of the theme parks, water parks, and at Downtown Disney. The Baby Centers are great areas for parents to get away to feed, change, and care for their baby's needs.To learn more about the Baby Care Centers, follow the link I provided to watch a short video. I would also recommend bringing your own stroller with you to make things easier when traveling to and from the parks and around the Walt Disney World Resort property. I am out of room, but please write back if you have any other questions. Best wishes for a Magical Trip!
