Tips for Surviving Disney World With Little Kids

Tips for Surviving Disney World With Little Kids

This past Autumn I visited Disney World with my three-year-old and two-year-old nephews. It was a dream come true for me and something I had been looking forward to ever since they were born. Sharing the magic with little ones is just one of those things which makes visiting a Disney Park all the more magical. My husband and I had visited Disneyland and Disney World many times before and every day at the park was like a marathon. We would be there from rope drop to fireworks and LOVED every minute of it. But this time we knew things would be different. And I think that is one of the biggest pieces of advice I have for people going to Disney with kids. If it's the first time you're all visiting or even if it's just your first time going with kids the best thing to do is change your expectations. Kids need to move at their own pace. I saw so many kids having meltdowns and every time it seemed to be over them being pushed too far. Don't expect everything to go to plan, or to ride every single ride, or stay from opening till close. While there might be some unexpected mishaps, remember that there will be a million more incredible memories. Here are some tips I learned from my own experience and while talking to a ton of different parents about their experiencing with taking their little ones to the park.
