    We are having our first Disney vacation from April 2nd and April 6th. My husband is not looking forward to this trip AT ALL because of the crowds. Any suggestions for keeping him calm and patient? He is generally the king of patience, but now maybe not.

    As the proud father of two little girls I can relate to losing my patience at the parks. It happens to the best of us. I try to remember that this is a vacation and I need to let all those vibes go. There are so many wonderful moments and memories waiting for the whole family at Walt Disney World, you just have to see them. I suggest that the pace of the vacation slow down. I would not focus on going on all the attractions and waiting in line and instead plan some great meals and seeing some of the awesome shows at the parks. By slowing down and not focusing on doing it all, you will all have a great time. Visit the smaller attractions that are available. We love drinking soda at Club Cool in Epcot. It's free and fun. My mom is huge fan of the gorgeous flowers that are planted at the parks and she finds joy in just looking at them. There is also so great sports activities including fishing, golf and running trails. I think that if a person can just slow down the pace and have fun it will be the best vacation you ever had.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
