    We just found out on Monday that we are coming to DW for the 1st time from 9/9-9/14 at CS. Our DD are 2 and 5. I will be flying solo for the first 2 days as my DH has a conference. Any tips, suggestions, warnings I should know of? LOVE THIS PANEL!

    Hi Nicole!

    Congratulations on your spontaneous upcoming first trip!

    Don't worry about going it alone with your girls for a few days.  I've traveled with my two kids alone, and had no problems experiencing the parks and rides together.  There are several in which you can ride as a "three-some", including:  It's a Small World, Peter Pan, and Winnie the Pooh, and others where you'll be in the same "car", even if you're not on the same "bench" (examples are Aladdin's Magic Carpet and Snow White).  The cast members are great at accommodating families, while keeping your safety in mind. 

    I've given you examples at Magic Kingdom, but the same is the case at all of the other parks, where there are plenty of attractions you can ride together.  I also recommend bringing along an easy to fold double stroller.  Although your oldest probably doesn't use one at home, the amount of walking at Disney can tire out a seasoned athlete, let alone a little girl!  Plus, keeping tabs on two kids in the parks is much easier when each one is safely seated in front of you.  I've found Disney guests to be very helpful when I needed to get on and off buses alone with a stroller.  I've honestly never had to ask someone to help me "fold and load" my stroller while I got my kids on, as a thoughtful guest has always offered a hand.

    Have a magical trip with your princesses!
