    First time mother with a 22 m. old who'll be 2 for our vacation. Long time Disney World guest (since 2003) However, the world changes completely when you're a mother. (especially a single one) I have no clue what the rules are with a toddler. Help?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Crystal!

    I am so glad that you found us!

    You must be so excited to share the magic of Walt Disney World with your little one! What a perfect age to experience the sights and sounds of this very special place.

    Do not worry about touring any Walt Disney World park with a toddler in tow. The ease with which I could navigate those parks with my own little ones caused me to fall in love with WDW. Read through all of the helpful articles and tips for touring Walt Disney World with preschoolers. There, you'll find the Preschool Parent's Guide to Walt Disney World Resort, a suggested itinerary for touring, news on what's right for your little one right now and so many more tips. It's a must-read that will put your mind at ease.

    Be sure to locate Baby Care Centers in each of the four theme parks which feature changing tables, feeding areas with highchairs and shops where you can purchase items you might run out of while touring. These were so helpful when I toured with my baby and toddler. You will love them!

    Other than that, tour the parks knowing what works for your little one. Keep snacks and a drink on hand at all times, as sometimes that's all they need to keep them happy. If it's hot during your stay, attach a fan to your stroller and use a canopy for shade. Incorporate play time during your day, too, so look for dance parties and outdoor play areas where your little one can burn off some steam.

    In short, you won't be able to do it all and see it all on a toddler's schedule, so find some favorites and enjoy watching your little one's face light up with each new wonder!

    Send more questions as you plan, Crystal; we love to help!
