    Do you think buying Genie+ would be worth it for my family (2 adults, 3.5yr old and 1 infant) if we weren't looking to ride the main rides? I'm not sure how my toddler will do on the rides and don't want to buy Genie+ and not really need it.

    Welcome to planDisney Lindsay!

    How fun to be traveling to Walt Disney World with little ones! They find magic in everywhere! Take lots of pictures because these are moments to cherish. 

    With 2 very young kids, I would probably pass on Genie+. The good thing is that if you change your mind, you can add it on at any time. If you do purchase it, you only need it for guests ages 3 and older. Let me give you some tips that won't cost you a thing but save you some time!

    Start with bringing a stroller from home. This way when you get to the parks, you can head straight to the fun without a stop at stroller rental. Speaking of getting to the parks, get there early! This is when the crowds are the lowest and you can enjoy shorter lines. Prioritize your ride selections to get in those "must do" rides early. 

    This next one is a biggie: Take advantage of Rider Switch. One grown up can ride with your 3 year old while the other watches the baby. Then you can SWITCH without waiting in line again! Your 3 year old will think it's the best thing ever getting to ride TWICE! Check with a Cast Member outside each attraction for details. 

    Each theme park has an amazing Baby Care Center. Stop by for feedings, changings, and freshening up your little Mouseketeers. I can't tell you what a life saver these Centers were when my kids were little. 

    My biggest "mom" advice is to take breaks for naps. Our little ones love to stay on schedule and nobody will have fun if tired and fussy. Everyone will enjoy some pool time and relaxing back at the room. Return to the parks in the evening when the temps cools down and crowds thin out. 

    If you have any other questions, you have a whole team here at planDisney who can help! Have fun planning your magical vacation.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
