    This will be the first trip to Disney World for my 3 year old son. Does Disney do anything special for first time visitors? Also any tips for taking a 3 year old to Disney?

    Welcome back, Ashley, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your three-year-old Pirate is going to have the most magical time of his life! 

    Pixie Dust is sure to find its way to your little while you are the parks. For first-time visitors, complimentary buttons can be given to you by any Cast Member throughout the parks and resorts. This magical button lets Cast Members and characters know that this is the first time that your son has visited Mickey and his friends! So be sure to wear this magical button each day of your Disney vacation.

    When visiting Walt Disney World with a toddler, always have a stroller. We have brought our own before and we have rented them from area Orlando companies. We love a stroller that reclines so that our little one can rest while we continue to enjoy the theme parks. Also, take plenty of snacks and beverages. Disney allows you to bring any foods that don't require heating. So take all of his favorites to keep on hand for his requests. 

    Last, each theme park has a Baby Care Center. Inside the Center, there is air conditioning, all the baby products you might need (additional cost), and a clean environment for you to change a quick diaper/pull-up. 

    Oh, and one last tip, Ashley. Start your days early, take a midday nap, and return to the parks later in the day after your little one has had some time to relax and reenergize in your Disney resort room.  

    Here's to having the most magical time ever! Stop by and visit with us again soon.
