    First time for my wife and we have a 1.5 year old with us. What would you suggest for a vacation

    Hey there, Rory! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Any stay at The Most Magical Place on Earth is going to be more than memorable but I'd love to help you craft a practically perfect vacation for you and your little family! Even if your little one doesn't necessarily remember every moment you know you'll have captured their smiles in your memories and your photos.  It might be a great idea to purchase Memory Maker for your trip so that the entire family can be seen smiling from Mickey ear to Minnie ear!  Disney PhotoPass Service Photographers can take pictures of your entire family's happy smiles at iconic locations throughout the Theme Parks and you'll be able to download and cherish all of them once you're back home. 

    For your little one's first trip I would highly suggest making a Guest room reservation at one of the more than 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotels on the Walt Disney World Resort property.  Whether you're looking to stay in the lap of luxury at a Disney Deluxe Resort such as Disney's Yacht Club Resort or Disney's Polynesian Village Resort,  or at a budget-friendly but still awfully magical Value Resort such as Disney's Pop Century Resort, you're sure to find a Resort that appeals to both your senses and your budget. 

    With a baby, you'll be happy to know that Disney's complimentary transportation options are all easily accessible with a stroller.  Strollers can even be brought on the Disney Monorail and Disney Skyliner without having to be folded up, meaning you won't have to wake a sleeping toddler to travel! Whether you're planning to bring yours from home or rent one in the Parks, you'll definitely want a comfortable place for baby to rest and relax while you still have fun.  

    Since you sound like a return visitor I'm sure you would like to show your wife and child each and every Theme Park at the Resort.  A 4-day Standard Theme Park Ticket would allow you to see it all as you visit one Theme Park per day.  If you want even more fun you could also grab a Park Hopper Option Ticket where you can "hop" to more than one Park each day.  

    No matter where you end up each day, feel free to take advantage of the Baby Care Centers at each Theme Park if your little one needs a little time to cool down, rest, and relax.  The Baby Care Centers have changing stations, feeding areas with highchairs, and even shops to purchase anything you may have run out of! Truthfully, I've stopped here more than I'd like to admit because we needed to grab some extra diapers and wipes!

    As you put the finishing touches on your upcoming visit please come back and see us again with any and all other planning questions!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
