    We will be visiting WDW for one day and will not be staying at a hotel nearby. Is there a place where we can rest and let me 3 year get a nap?

    HI Jennifer,

    There isn't any specific place for a child to take a nap.  Every child is different, my daughter had good luck taking naps in our car.  We would leave the park after lunch and drive around until she fell asleep.  An hour or so later we would re-enter the park.  Once you pay for parking you are allowed to leave and re-enter without any additional charges.  The same goes for your park tickets, you are allowed to leave and re-enter as often as you like.

    We also found that the movies that are played at Epcot can help lull a small tired child into a nap.  My daughter once fell asleep during Impressions de France in the France Pavilion of Future World.  We were then able to transfer her to her stroller and she slept while we walked around.  

    If its possible try to bring your stroller from home.  I found my daughter had much better luck sleeping in that than in the ones that are for rent at WDW.

    Enjoy your trip
