Traveling with a toddler to Disney…lets get real!

Toddler1

Envision this:  A "magical" trip to Disney with your toddler.  Nothing but smiles and tears of joy.  The outbursts are non-existent, your child's patience are at an all time high, and waiting doesn't evoke a concern in the world.  These are the trips that I envisioned, strives for, and dreamed of.  Now don't get me wrong; our trips have been incredibly magical and filled with amazing memories that are sure to last more than a lifetime.  However reality reared it's ugly head early on in our … [Read more...]


New Fantasyland and your Toddler Part 1

Dumbo 1

On my son's first trip to Disney I was incredibly disappointed that there were not many options to let infants/toddlers crawl around.  Now before I get virtually stoned for my previous statement, this was around the time that Pooh's play area was closed in Magic Kingdom to make way for New Fantasyland.  At that time I had no idea what to expect and I was concerned that there wasn't going to be much for the younger crowd.  I am happy to say that I couldn't have been more wrong!My first stop … [Read more...]

Jungle 1

When we started taking John to Disney World people told us we were crazy, he is too young, he won't remember, blah blah blah.  His first trip was when he was 8 months old.  We took a Disney cruise on the Disney Dream (this was AMAZING), and then we headed off to Disney World for 4 more nights.  This vacation was the best vacation ever!  We made memories that he may not remember, but we sure will!  While at Castaway Cay he met Donald, his first character.This meeting was love at first … [Read more...]

A few tips for enjoying a nice sit down meal with your kids

John loved meeting Pluto

I love the Disney Dining Plan. I know that some people love it and others not so much, but for my family we really enjoy it.  I am able to book meals in advance, there usually isn't too much of a wait when checking in, and the food is DELICIOUS!  The problem is (he really isn't a problem) my 2-year-old!  He is an incredibly active child, he is always on the go, he runs and doesn't walk, sitting for 5 minutes is like sitting for 5 hours to him.  We ran into our fair share of problems while … [Read more...]
