    We are going to WDW with our 1 and 3 year old girls in April. Any recommendations as to how to get through the day?


    As the dad to two girls, also 3 and 1, I totally feel your pain! Here are my pointers to make life a bit easier;

    • Nap time is a daily must-do. Even if your 3 year old doesn't want to take a nap, you have to make it happen, otherwise you will never make it through the day. And it will start to build up as the week progresses, making the end of your trip a nightmare.
    • Pool time is not a bad idea either. After naps are over, make sure you do a bit of pool time most days to ease them back into action.
    • Use the Baby Care Centers. Located in each park, these centers offer changing tables, nursing rooms, and a relaxation room with couch, TV, and some toys. These air-conditioned havens are a great place to let the kids recharge. If you forgot any essential supplies (diapers, etc.), they have them for sale there too.

    Believe me, it will not be bad at all as long as you pace yourselves! If you have any other questions, just send them to me from my bio page.

    Have a magical vacation!
