    My wife and I are staying in Orlando and bringing our 15mo to MK in Spring 2016. Could you offer advice on when to get to the car park so that we can be at the park for opening and also near enough to the entrance to pop back for bay things when needed?

    Hi, Daniel!  If you are planning to be at the theme parks for rope drop each morning, try to be in the parking lot by about 30 minutes before the posted park opening time.  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you may be entitled to enter the park during Extra Magic Hours, which can offer up to an hour earlier entrance into one of the parks for resort guests.  If you plan to be there when Extra Magic Hours begins, you should be fine without arriving too much earlier.

    There are also Baby Care Centers located in each of the theme parks.  If there's something you've forgotten and don't want to run back to your hotel, you can pop in and grab things like extra diapers, baby food, formula, and other baby essentials.

    Have a lovely time on your upcoming vacation!
