    Any tips for flying on a plane? Were coming in April on a 2 hour flight. DS4 & DS1. Never have flown with the kids. Want to start the vacation off right. Thanks.

    Hi Danielle!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    First I recommend paying for a seat for each child and using a car seat.  I think they will be much more comfortable that way.  You should also bring something for them to do.  The 4 year old could watch a movie or color; a cartoon movie might entertain your 1 year old for a little while, but probably not for the whole flight so definitely bring some toys.

    A big issue that young children have is the change in air pressure, especially when the plane comes in for a landing.  I suggest bringing something a child can drink from and having each child drink as the plane starts its descent.  Basically you want to get the children to swallow and that's a good way to do it.

    Planes can be cold so definitely bring something to keep them warm, even though you will be flying to sunny Florida!  You might want to have a light jacket handy or a blanket!  I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
