    Luv the Panel! We're planning our 1st trip to DW in Sept w/ 2 y.o. son. Guessing we can't bring strollers in line while we wait for rides. Correct? Any suggestions for entertaining a little one this age while we stand in line? Yikes!!

    Hi, Karyn!  For most of the rides and attractions, you will be asked to park your stroller before you get into the line.  When my girls were this age, I always kept two very important things in my backpack - bubbles and sticker books.  My daughters used to love it when we blew bubbles for them to catch while we waited in line for rides or shows, and in many cases, the other children in the line enjoyed it as well!  If we were in line with someone who was sensitive to the soap bubbles, we would pull out our sticker books.  I always keep an eye out at dollar stores and on clearance shelves for stickers that I know the kids will like, and then I give them to them while we are waiting in line to put in their books. 

    If you have time ahead of time, I will get a notebook and draw some pictures where their stickers might "fit", then let them decorate the pages with their stickers.  You can also do a hide and seek thing - put one sticker at the top of each page that is a hint to a character they like (maybe a Mickey silhouette for Mickey Mouse's page - at least for this age) - then let them decorate that page with the stickers they have of that character.

    You can also bring story books, coloring books, even Play-doh.  Just make sure that whatever you bring, you keep an eye on the little one so nothing gets swallowed. 

    Have a great time!
