    My husband and I are taking our 10 mnth son to Disney in Dec, staying at a deluxe resort. I will be 32 weeks pregnant. It's been a couple years since I've been to Disneyworld, any suggestions on keeping our days as relaxing as possible?

    Hi, Lisa!  My best advice for a relaxing vacation is to try not to over schedule yourself.  I know the temptation is always great to try and squeeze in every last attraction, every parade, lots of restaurants, but honestly, you can see plenty and enjoy yourself is you just take your time, enjoy the view from a park bench periodically, and know that whatever you don't get to this time around is likely to be there the next time you come.

    Decide if you are a morning person or an evening person, and then make a plan to either be at the parks when they open so you can head out early for a relaxing evening at your resort; or take advantage of the evening extra magic hours so you can sleep in each morning.  If you are going to book advanced dining reservations, try to only do a couple during your stay instead of one each meal or each evening.  This lets you stop when you want instead of racing to a dining reservation. 

    Plan some pool time and enjoy your resort.  Your son is at a great age, as he's not going to be asking to ride this or see that, so take advantage of a baby's ability to just go with the flow.  It's a great idea to sleep in, lounge by the pool, grab some lunch at your resort, and maybe do some shopping at Downtown Disney in the evening.  They have cute things for new babies there!

    The biggest thing, though, is don't be in a race to see and do everything.  Make a short list of what are must see attractions, and everything you do after that is pure bonus!

    Have a great vacation! Stay well hydrated and rest your feet when you can!
