    We are taking a disney vacation in June, and my son will be 14 months then. Any tips/ideas/must-dos/suggestions for disney with a little little one? Thanks,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jessica ~

    June will be here before you know it and I'm excited to see you're planning ahead. The Magic Kingdom offers a lot of attractions for children that age. Be sure to visit Mickey at Town Square Theater. He talks at this location!

    Here are some things I've found helpful when traveling to Disney with toddlers:
    * Make your FastPass+ selections ahead of time to cut down waiting in line.
    * Don't over plan every minute of your day. It will wear you and your son out.
    * Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in all 4 theme parks.
    * Your son can ride any of the attractions where he meets the height requirements. For those attractions with height requirements, you can use Rider Switch option.
    * Bring something to help keep your son entertained in line - favorite small toys, snacks, bubbles, etc.
    * Be sure to give him breaks from his stroller.
    * Try (it may be hard) to stick to nap times and bed time.
    * Keep him well fed and well hydrated (that goes for you too).
    * I answered a question for another guest with some tips on strollers that you may also found find helpful.
    * If you see that your son has had enough for the day, pack it up and head back to your resort. You may not get to do everything on your trip, but you will enjoy everything you do.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your questions. We're thrilled to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
