    I am planning a trip for the week of 1/21/12 for my son, 5 and my daughter, 2.5 years old. What do you suggest as a parent traveling alone with young children? Should I do the park hopper and if i don't, can i reenter the park again at night?

    Hi there Jamie!

    I have been to several of the Walt Disney World parks with my son and daughter all by myself. It's not really that bad specially since your kids are young. They will follow you everywhere and there are certain "family" restrooms you can use thoughout the "World"! I would definitely look into either bringing your own stroller or renting one at the parks. When you rent one, you will be able to re-enter and get another one if it is available.

    You had a great point about re-entry. Most people get to the parks very early and take a break in the afternoon. Then, they return that evening for more park fun. As long as you have your ticket you will be allowed re-entry. I think the only reason you would want to get a Park Hopper is if you are going to only be there for a few days. With a week, you have plenty of time to relax and see each park separately. I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
