    I'm a single mom of 10 and 5 year old boys. I'm planning a trip to DW the end of August and it will just be me and my boys. Do you have any advice, tricks, suggestions on how to plan and survive the Magic Kingdom on my own? :)

    Hi Tina!

    You and your boys are going to have an amazing time at Walt Disney World! 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, make sure to take advantage of all of the complimentary services that will make your trip stress-free, such as the complimentary Magical Express that will handle your bags and transport you from the airport to the resort. You can also take the complimentary bus transportation to the park from your resort. 

    Prior to your trip, make all of your Advanced Dining Reservations. Your kids will love Crystal Palace and Liberty Tree Tavern (both at Magic Kingdom).  Dining is one of the most fun things to do at Disney and it will give you a chance to relax after walking around the parks.

    I also suggest buying Memory Maker in advance, as you can have any PhotoPass photographer take your pictures with characters, in front of Cinderella Castle and more, and you can view them all on your My Disney Experience account. 

    While in the parks, make sure to scope out the attractions that you can all ride together. Check out the attractions by height on the Disney website so you can plan them in advance. You can also rent a locker so you don't have to haul your stuff around all day. 

    Cherish every moment of this special vacation with your boys!
