    Taking my 2 yr old son to WDW for the 1st time at the beginning of April for his birthday. I need the experts to give me all the advice they can re: where to stay (that offers cribs), what parks to take him to, take our own stroller or rent etc?

    Hi Jennifer,

    I took my princess for the first time to Disney when she was turning two and I wish I knew then what I know now.

    Many of the resorts have pack and play cribs in the rooms.  This worked fine for my daughter. 

    I would definitely bring my own stroller for your pirate.  The parks are a lot of walking and you may want to enjoy some sights or lunch while he is sleeping.  It will also be handy to wheel him to the bus, monorail or car after a long day of touring. I would have a lightweight stroller with canopy and ability to recline.  The strollers at Disney are made of hard plastic and while easy to push may not be the most comfortable to sleep in for a young pirate.

    As for the hotel, it depends on where you want to visit.  I would recommend all the parks because there is something for everyone in each.  If you are going for a short stay, less than four days, I would stay by the Magic Kingdom and then visit either Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom.  For longer stays, add in EPCOT and he will enjoy the Living Seas and Journey into Your Imagination.  During his nap you can enjoy the World Showcase and touring the different countries.

    I hope this helps and may your pirate enjoy his first trip to Magic Kingdom!
