    Is napping at the resorts a must for toddlers?

    Hiya Fatima!

    Thank you so much for stopping by!  Planning a Walt Disney World Vacation for a toddler is so much fun!  I think this can be a tough question to answer.  If you have a super power napper that naps fantastically in the stroller, and you don't have a HUGE evening schedule planned?  Then, I'd say go for it!  If you have a child that really needs that calm, darkness, and quiet to really rest and you've got a big evening planned?  Then, by all means, make that trip back to your hotel for the afternoon nap!

    It really depends on the child's disposition.  Out of my three, I had two that could cope pretty well, but one  that needed to go back to the hotel to recharge.  In my opinion, trading off a few hours to avoid a complete meltdown is totally worth it!

    Remember, there are few things snacks, a nap, or 10 minutes running around can't solve in the life of a toddler.  

    Have a magical vacation!
