    So I was thinking about weather or not I should go either this coming may or next March, I will have a 2 month old and a 2 year old this may, or I will have a 14 month old and a soon to be 3 year old? experiences with either?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brittany. We're glad you stopped by!

     The only thing I love more than a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a new baby. I'm so thrilled to hear you're preparing for both!

     The magic in the theme parks is perfect for Guests of all ages. That said, if you have to choose between this Spring or next, I recommend waiting until next when your little ones will be a bit older. My kids have visited at all different ages, but one of my most favorite visits was when my oldest son was 3-years old and my youngest son was just a little over 1. Watching them experience the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort just melted my heart! When my 1-year old met Mickey Mouse, he nearly leapt out of my husband's arms with excitement. It was precious! The logistics of traveling with the two of them at those ages was easier than when they were even smaller. For example, they were both on the same routine at that point; sleeping through the night and taking the same afternoon nap. My youngest was old enough to be eating solid foods, so I didn't need to worry about packing baby food and bottles in addition to all the other things I needed to pack like diapers and wipes. I think you'll find your visit to be more manageable and more memorable if you wait until your newest addition is just a bit older. But - if you choose to visit this Spring AND next, you have my full support!

     My best tip for anyone traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones in tow is to stay at a Disney Resort hotel. Guests of Disney Resort hotels enjoy lots of benefits like early FastPass+ planning, complimentary MagicBands, and Extra Magic Hours. One of my favorite benefits, though, is the complimentary transportation. From the moment we arrive at Orlando International Airport, Disney's Magical Express picks us up and whisks us away for pixie-dusted adventures! During our stay, we take advantage of buses, boats, and the monorail - no matter the mode of transportation, I know my family will get to our destination quickly, safely, and reliably. This is especially important when we have some sleepy kiddos on our hands! 

     I hope this was helpful, Brittany. Please let me know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
