    Tips for traveling with toddlers

    Hi Danielle!

    This will be the most magical vacation that your toddlers will have ever had! Which means this will be your most magical vacation too! Doing Disney through the eyes of Mickey's littlest fans is so much fun!

    Here are a few tips to help you get started on this magical journey!

    1. Always have a stroller-Either bring a stroller for your little ones or rent one at the parks or through an Orlando vendor. When my little ones get tired, my husband and I don't have to worry about carrying them. 

    2. Start Early-If you have early risers, start at the theme parks at rope drop. Rope Drop is right when the parks open. The crowds are usually less and the August weather is not as hot in the morning. 

    3. Choose FastPass+ selections-With little ones, waiting in line may not be so magical. So choose your FastPass+ options based on what you think they will enjoy. For my toddlers, I allowed them to help me choose which FastPass+ attractions, shows or meet and greets they wanted to do. We sat together and planned out or Disney days.

    4. Bring all the snacks- My little ones ask for a snack every 30 minutes! So we make sure that we have all of their favorite snacks packed in our backpack. Anything that doesn't require warming can be brought into the park. That way when they ask for juice or applesauce, we can make it magically appear. When you arrive at the security checkpoint, just make sure that you inform them that you have snacks for your little ones.
