    As a single mom myself, son is 2, I was wondering whats the easiest way to enjoy Disney. I've been in Jan with him but my parents came to help. I want to enjoy a vaca just the 2 of us! Coming in Sept again. He only likes his stroller so I'll have that too!

    Thanks for the great question, Brandy! I totally understand you feeling overwhelmed. I was nervous the first time I brought my daughter to Disney World without family or friends. Rest assured that feeling didn't last, and we had the most fantastic time.

    Disney cast members are there to help, and are most willing. Be sure to take them up on it! Use them whenever you need to, whether it's carrying your tray to your table at a counter service or carrying your bags to your room. Here are a few other suggestions:

    - Get to the parks at opening and take advantage of the early Extra Magic Hours, where you can enjoy less crowds in the theme parks.
    - Reserve a character meal - your son will love the one on one character interaction!
    -Don't be shy to ask people to take your pictures so you can both be in the shots. Either use the photopass service, or ask the photopass photographers to take pictures with your camera.
    - If you are going to enjoy table service dining, be sure to reserve in advance, so you can avoid waiting for a table. Call (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) or book online before leaving.
    - To avoid line ups at check-in, use the on-line registration service.

    Enjoy all the magic Disney Brandy! You're creating beautiful memories with your son! Write me back with any other questions!
