    Semi-annual family WDW trip for April 2013 except this time we'll have 6 kids ages 1 - 3.5. We will be staying at Sheraton Vistana Villages instead of on property. Any tips for making our stay a little easier with so many little ones even off property?

    My number one piece of advice, Erica, is to make sure those six little ones are well-rested.  Taking a midday break for naps is going to be the very best thing you can do to ensure that your trip goes smoothly without unnecessary breakdowns.  Also, make sure that you bring little snacks into the park with you.  Think along the lines of goldfish crackers and fruit leather strips.  Those munchies will help pass the time waiting in queues or for a show to start.  If you need a place to change a diaper, the Baby Care Centers are so much nicer than just the bathroom. 

    I've stayed at the Sheraton Vistana Villages twice.  I love that they have in-room laundry facilities and full kitchens.  I would only caution you to beware of the timeshare sharks; they can be obnoxiously persistent.  Have a great trip!
