    Traveling with mom, husband and 14mo old. Husband has me panicked that our trip will be 5 days of screaming and crying because our son is too young and wont have anything to participate in. I know he can ride along on most rides, but am I crazy doing this?

    Hi Erin!

    It was a few years ago that my husband and I were having a very similar conversation!  The difference was that we had a three year old son and twin 18 month old girls.  All three of our children were great for most of time we were at Walt Disney World.  

    The key was to really pay attention to their mood which only seemed to sour at the end of the day.  With all the sights and sounds they were content watching the world around them, taking part in the rides and being glued to looking at all the characters.

    Having lots of water and snacks available was another tool to ensure they didn't get cranky.

    It worked for us, hopefully it will be just as good for you!

    Have a magical time!
