    I will be visiting WDW in Oct with a 2 and 4 year old and will be 7 months pregnant. Any advice on when the best times for "napping" are to avoid the crowds and make the most of our time in the parks?

    Hi Melissa! I think the three of you will make very good use of nap time! One of the perks of staying at a Disney Resort is the ease of going back to your resort mid-day for a break.

    I highly recommend being at the parks for opening time. You'll be amazed at how much you can do in the first hours of park opening, when the crowd levels are lower. We usually head back to the resort after lunch for a rest and a swim. This way, we avoid the mid-day crowds and afternoon sun. If this works with your kids nap schedules, I highly recommend it. My experience is that skipping much needed naps is never good for anyone!

    Have a magical vacation Melissa!
