    We're traveling to WDW with our 15 mo old and i'm a bit worried about dealing with a toddler in the lines and on the rides (all that holding still!). How do you find that toddlers are in these situations? What does Disney do if the kids freak out?

    Hi Abagail!
    I think that, for the most part, young toddlers find plenty to occupy them in line with all of the music, colors, and people. Particularly in queue areas like the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, where kids can use the interactive play areas to pass the time. Should the occasional "freak out" occur (and we have all been there), I would see that as a signal that it is time for a break, be it a snack, drink, or a return to the resort to swim or nap. Also, I would not look to Disney for the answer, as this is a parental thing and everyone deals with it differently. Nobody knows your child better than you, so take your cues from them...and adjust accordingly.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
