8. Check for baby care areas in every park. There are usually places for you to change the baby, nurse and feed, and use a high chair.
9. For rides that the children are too small for, but the adults want to try, you can 'baby swap.' Enter the line together. One adult gets on the ride while the other holds the child. When the first adult's ride is over, swap the baby for a seat on the ride.
10. For waiting in theme park lines, take bubbles for the kids.
11. Purchase a five-day pass! They are cheaper through AAA or your credit union. Plan for one late night, because the parade should not be missed! Ask someone where the best spot for character interaction will be and find your parade place early.
12. When visiting a Disney theme park with a young child, plan on bringing or renting a stroller. The days consist of quite a bit of walking, standing and playing. It gets very hot and humid in Florida during the summer, so consider a spring or fall vacation.
13. If your child likes Disney characters, the best place to see them all is at MGM Studios courtyard.
14. Even toddlers can have a great time at Disney World. Try a character breakfast at the Vacation Club and Fantasyland at The Magic Kingdom (the Snow White ride and the Lion King Show may be too scary). Enjoy ice cream treats at Beaches & Cream (The Beach Club) and the Beauty and the Beast show at Disney Studios. The parades are also fun. At many Disney specialty meals (character breakfasts and dinners) there is no charge for kids under 3, but you do need reservations before heading down. The baby care centers are perfect for a break.
