    Any tips for Disney with a 3 and 1 year old. We are coming in August (hot month) for 10 days and can take any advice we can get on our trip. This is their first vacation so we are very excited! Thanks

    Hi Laura!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How adorable that you are planning the very first visit of your little ones to the most magical place on earth.

    I have a 6-year-old daughter, and our next visit will also take place in the summer so here are my tips:

    - Stay at a Disney Resort hotel to enjoy exclusive benefits such as Extra Magic Hours, and complimentary transportation.
    - Start your day early, and go back to your Disney Resort hotel after lunch to take a nap or relax by the pool. You can go back to the theme parks by late afternoon or early evening when it’s cooler.
    - Visit the Baby Care Centers located at the theme parks. They are the perfect place for a break, a snack, and a diaper change. You can purchase items such as baby food and formula, and even use their kitchen to warm food and bottles.
    - Rent a double stroller with one of Disney Featured Providers. I think this is so convenient, because the stroller will be waiting for you at your Disney Resort hotel, and this way you can leave yours at home.
    - Explore Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones for advice on attractions and activities at all four theme parks.
    - Make reservations for a special character meal. I highly recommend Chef Mickey's for your little ones.

    I hope this helps you plan their special first visit! Please stop by with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
