    Hi Moms! I will be visitin WDW Sept 15-23 2012 with my DH, DD8, DD5 and DD3. We don't want to split up in the park but we want it to be fun for all of us. What is the best way to hit the parks as a family and make sure we all have a blast? Thanks!!

    Hi Rebecca,

    You are going to the Happiest Place on Earth you are guaranteed fun!!

    I think if you have a family discussion prior to leaving that you are going to experience everything that you can. I have 3 kids-twin girls and a boy. There are times that my husband and I break away with the kids and go do different things to make everyone happy but usually we tell them that we are going to do everything and to be patient. My son does not want to wait in line to see the princesses, but he does because he knows we will be waiting with him to get on Star Tours.  I think if you can go with the flow of the day and see as much as you can that it will make everyone happy. There is a lot to see and do but it is doable!! Make a plan before you go of "must do's" so you can be sure that you get those done! 
    Pick up a Times Guide when you arrive so you can plan your days. The Times Guide will list show times, fireworks, parade times, character meet and greet times/location.

    A family is a team and I explain that to my kids so we stay together so we can experience the magic and the memories together!!

    Wishing you a very fun vacation!!
