    I'm going to Disney World in March 2010 for my daughter's 2nd birthday. I'm worried because at the same time I'll be taking my son that will be 8months. I need tips and advise as to what to take; what diaper bag to buy; HELP??

    Hi, Lillybeth!   What an exciting vacation you have ahead of you with 2 little mouseketeers!    I took my kids when they were 8 months old and 3 years old, so I think I can help you out!

    In your suitcase, pack all the basics:   diapers, formula, bottles, wipes, etc.   If you are staying at a Disney Resort, let the cast member know at check-in if you need 1 or 2 pack and plays for your little ones to sleep in.     

    For the parks, there are some necessities!    A sturdy bag for all your baby needs (I always carried a backpack), an extra outfit for each of your kids (put each outfit in a big ziploc bag that way you can zip away any messy or soiled outfits!),  camera, water bottles, cheerios or cracker snacks, hats to shield the sun, and a double stroller.    Strollers need to be folded on the buses, so plan to have it unpacked before boarding for easy folding.

    You will find your favorite place in each of the parks will be the Baby Care Centers!   These are great for diaper changes, feedings, buying any items you are running short on, or just a quiet place to sit with your baby.  I spent a LOT of time in the Centers with my kids when they were little!

    Remember with little ones you cannot keep a crazy itinerary!   Keep on schedule for naps, meals, and bedtimes at night.   You won't get to see as much, but the time you spend will be much more magical if everyone is well rested and happy!   I hope your little ones enjoy their WDW vacation!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
