    Hi! This will be our 3rd trip to Disney World. We normally spend most if not all day at the park. We are bringing a 1 yr old and and I was wondering if that was still feasible or if there are any ideas about how to get the most out of our day with him.

    Hi Annesha,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm excited to hear that you'll be returning for another magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! With five children, I have enjoyed many full Disney days with a little one, so I'd be happy to share some tips to help your visit go smoothly with your little Mouseketeer!

    First, you'll find so many attractions without height restrictions, fun character greeting opportunities, and magical parades and shows that there will definitely be LOTS of things your little guy will LOVE to do, however, feel free to take breaks when needed! We always made sure to bring our kiddos' favorite blankies or bedtime friends with us, and then when it was nap time, we'd let them nap in the stroller for a bit. My husband and I would use that time to take advantage of the Rider Switch service and take turns experiencing some of the attractions that our little ones weren't able to enjoy quite yet.

    One tip I have for the afternoon parade: We always love to grab a delicious ice cream treat, find a great viewing spot where our little ones can see easily, and enjoy our treat together while we wait. When they were little, we found that this was a great time to let them out of the stroller to dance or chase some bubbles!

    Lastly, for a cool spot to feed or change your little guy, feel free to stop in at the Baby Care Centers, which are located in all four theme parks. They'll also have common baby and toddler supplies for sale in case you need anything to help your Mouseketeer feel at home.

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning this visit, Annesha, and have a truly magical vacation with your little one!
