    I will be traveling to WDW in June with my 7 yr old and my 12 mo. old. I am concerned that I will miss out on a lot of experiences with my older son, because nap time will be difficult. What do other Moms do to not miss out on all of the fun at the park?

    Hi, Kristina!  I've had three daughters at various ages at Walt Disney World with me, and I have to say, nap time was never an issue for us.  All three of my girls would fall asleep either in a baby sling or in their strollers.  I always had my stroller decked out with clip on, battery operated fans for a bit of a breeze, and I'd pull the shade down so they were out of the sun, and nap time it was.

    If your little one absolutely won't nap in the theme parks, you could plan something special to do with your son when you are back at the hotel.  Bring a couple of Disney themed games that you can play while the baby sleeps, or have him help plan the afternoon for when you go back to the theme parks. 

    If you want to make sure you have plenty of park time, and you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, take advantage of the extra magic hours.  You can add an extra hour each morning in one of the parks, or a couple of hours each evening.  It should help you make up for lost time!

    Have a great trip!
