    My wife and I are bring our soon to be 2 year old to Disney in October. Now he is very squirmish, which is fine, but what are some good tips to bring on an airplane ? Would an IPAd Work fine?


    For us the iPad has become the saving grace on air travel!

    Our kids (now 5 and 7) have become iPad experts. We have a few of their favorite Disney channel shows recorded onto the device, and we also have some age-appropriate games.

    Just remember to stick to entertainment that does not require internet access. Even if your plane has it, the broadband often is too slow (and costly) to support video feeds.

    Also, I strongly recommend that you get some age appropriate headphones. Ear buds can cause hearing damage in kid's little developing ears, and over the head sets often are too large to fit properly. We love our Kidz Ears brand headsets.

    Finally, do bring at least one book, since electronics can't be on during take offs and landings.

    Write me back if you have any more questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
