    Hi, My husband surprised me and planned a trip to wdw...we have an 18 month old daughter. We are leaving in 3 weeks! We are staying at the Disney Caribbean beach resort. Any advice would, parks, anything!

    Hi Christina!  

    I am very excited to hear you will be going on your first Walt Disney World vacation in only three weeks! Yipee!  What a great surprise your husband has planned for you and your daughter.  My son's first visit was when he was that age and it was absolutely magical.

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is one of my all-time favorite resorts.  It will be wonderful for your daughter as the pool is one of the slopping, zero-entry kinds, which gradually gets deeper and they have a great water play area, specifically for youngsters.  My son literally learned to walk (and dance) on our way to breakfast every morning following along to the sound of the tropical music.  Florida weather is about as predictable as the rest of the country right now, so be sure to keep an eye on things closer to your arrival date.  I always pack light layers and bring a light jacket and jeans just in case.  

    Disney has created a special planning page filled with information and tips specifically for those Traveling with Little Ones.  One of the tips they include is the Rider Switch Program.  Since there may be some rides your daughter isn't quite big enough for, but you and your husband would like to experience, this option will be a real time saver for you and your family.   

    From all of us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, have an amazing vacation.  I have many other ideas and suggestions, so if you think of anything else I can help you with, please stop back by and ask me another question.

    Magical Wishes,
