    Hello! Looking for advice on traveling with my 2 boys (2 and 4) for their first trip to Disney...I haven't gone in YEARS, nor has my husband, so we are out of the loop on how to make the most of a trip to Disney! Suggestions for Pirates? Rides? Meals?

    Hi, there!

     Lindsay, I'm SO excited to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Are you squealing? (I'm squealing!) It's my pleasure to help you plan your vacation.

     A trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is always magical, but especially so with little ones in tow. Your heart is going to just melt when you watch your boys experience the power of magic! Be sure to check out the Preschool Parents' Guide while you're planning. It's an awesome resource filled with helpful tips about family-friendly attractions, entertainment options, and convenient services like Rider Switch. 

     Your little buccaneers most definitely need to visit Adventureland for a swashbuckling adventure on the high seas. Be sure to ride Pirates of the Caribbean and then meet the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow. Your biggest boy is old enough for a pirate transformation at The Pirate's League! If you're worried about your youngest feeling left out, stop by Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar to buy him a few scallywag accessories. Then together, he and his big brother will be singing, "Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!"

     When dining with my family at the Walt Disney World Resort, entertainment is my highest priority. I don't know about your kids, but mine don't sit well through a meal! Character Dining Experiences and restaurants with unique and fun theming make for a better dining experience for my family because the kids are occupied from start to finish. A few of our favorites include Sanaa and Coral Reef Restaurant. 
     I hope this was helpful, Lindsay!
