    My husband and I are so excited to be taking our grandkids (and their parents) to Walt Disney World at the end of May! I haven't been to Disney with little ones in years, obviously. :) Do you have any suggestions? Their ages will be 2 and 4.

    Hi Karen!

    I can't think of anything I love more than watching the faces of my grandkids at Walt Disney World. It is the best! We too have entered that phase of life when we are passing our love for Disney down to them...so much fun!

    The best advice I can give you is to plan ahead as much as possible. It will make the days much easier and more enjoyable for all of you. Create an account on My Disney Experience and then start adding every element of your vacation. As you link things such as Advanced Dining Reservations, Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, FastPass+ options, MagicBands (and more!) to your account, these things will be linked to the other elements, as well. For example, your MagicBands will be linked to your FastPasses and Advanced Dining Reservations--and everything else. It is a fantastic way to keep all of your plans together and organized. And with little ones, that is so essential. I would also highly recommend renting (or bringing) a stroller for both children. Even though your 4-year-old might not always ride in one, Disneyworld always involves a LOT of walking. We made the mistake of not renting a stroller for our 3 year old last year on our Disney vacation (she insisted that she was too big for a stroller!) and she tired out much more quickly than if she had been riding in one. Now I always tell my grandkids now that I would ride in a stroller at Walt Disney World if I could!

    Please stop back by if there is anything else we can do to help you as you plan. I'm so excited for you and the amazing memories you are about to make at Walt Disney World with your little ones.

    Have a really wonderful time!
