    I am planning a trip for May 2010 with my two sons 17 and 9(both Disney World Veterans) and my daughter who will be 21 months by then. I can wait no longer to take my daughter to Disney World. Any ideas on how she will fair at such a young age?

    Hi, Cheryl!   Your little one will do great in Disney IF you play by her rules!  This means keeping on her schedule, taking mid-day breaks, and taking your days at a nice pace.  

    Make sure to take a stroller and to locate the Baby Care Centers when you enter each park.  These are great for diaper changes and feedings.   Carry snacks, little toys to keep her busy, and a change of clothes in case of any accidents.  

    When traveling with older kids, you don't worry so much about "pushing" a bit hard, staying late, delaying meals, etc.   When you travel with babies or toddlers, you really need to keep things as normal as possible.   Try to get to bed on time and have your meals when your little one is used to eating.   It isn't always easy to do this, but the more you keep on your little princess' schedule, the happier all of you will be!  Have fun on your WDW vacation.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
