    Visiting 4/14-4/17/2016. Any suggestions on what to do for a 'rest' period with a 2yo and 4yo? We already have the monorail and riverboat on our agenda.

    Hello Nadine,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! As the Mother of four, I totally relate to the need to find a spot to rest when your children get tired. A Walt Disney World Resort vacation entails a lot of walking so it's a good idea to find places where your family can relax and recharge while in the Theme Parks. Here are my top picks for places to take a break while enjoying a day at the Parks:

    Magic Kingdom Park:
    Tom Sawyer Island ~ Grab a snack and take a ferry over to Tom Sawyer Island and enjoy the scenery, shaded areas, and picnic tables. 

    Future World ~ Head over to Future World and take a rest in the Sunshine Seasons Quick-Service Dining area. It's a great place for a fabulous meal too! You could also take a nice easy (and educational) boat ride on Living With The Land

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    The benches around Echo Lake offer a comfortable place to relax and are near the center of the Park. Once you’ve rested, you can head on your way to the next Attraction.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: 
    Take in a performance of Finding Nemo - The Musical and/or Festival of the Lion King. Both of these shows are amazing, and they are a wonderful way to sit and enjoy some down time in the Park. 

    You can also take advantage of the Baby Care Centers in the Theme Parks. 

    I hope these suggestions help! Please visit us again if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
