    Do kids behave at disney

    Hi, Jose!  This is about the most interesting question I think I've had! 

    Every kid is different, and I suppose every parent's perception of "behaving" is different!  For my family, I try to keep the girls on some kind of normal schedule, so they don't get too tired and become cranky and difficult to deal with.  That might mean leaving the theme parks early and missing the fireworks, or stopping earlier for lunch than we wanted.  I try to give them a normal bedtime, similar to what they have at home, and if I let them stay up later, I adjust our start time in the morning to let them sleep in.

    I think for the most part, there is so much to see and do at Walt Disney World, children are occupied and amazed.  You go from one attraction to another, and there really isn't much chance for them to get bored and agitated.  The biggest risk you have is trying to push too much on them in too short a period of time.  For some kids, all this magic can be overwhelming, so you want to take things slowly and in smaller doses.

    I hope that answers your question!
