    Hi panel! First time traveling w baby (15 mths at time). What are some of your best tips? Are 2 table service meals a day too aggressive? How many days for each park (9 day trip, 7 day passes)? Was thinking 2 1/2 Mk, 1/2 ak, 1/2 hs, 2 1/2 epc, 1 pool. TY!!

    Hi Elizabeth -

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'd definitely recommend that you familiarize yourself with the location of the baby care centers in each of the parks. You'll definitely want to use them during your trip. In addition, you may want to take breaks in the afternoon - it's a good way to break up the day and avoid crowds and heat.

    While I think that there will be days where you can do two table service meals, you probably won't want to do two everyday. We usually travel with cereal bars and other breakfast items, and eat breakfast in our room on most days.

    With regards to days for each park, I'm not sure if you are traveling with other children, or just your baby.  If you are traveling with older kids, I don't think 1/2 day at Hollywood Studios is going to be enough. It should be, however, if your baby is the only child who will be with you.

    Hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
