Moms Panel Monday: Afternoon Break Ideas for Kids (and Parents)!

posted on August 31st, 2015 by Jamie Langdon, Social Media Manager


At the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we often hear from parents of young children who no longer nap, but may need a midday rest to recharge after a busy morning in the parks. This week, several of our experienced panelists give their personal tips on how to manage the schedule for two little ones so they aren’t completely exhausted by the end of the day. From taking a break with a scenic tour on the Walt Disney World Railroad or the Monorail, or scheduling a table service meal during lunchtime for some fun (and air conditioning), our panelists serve up some fantastic ideas. Check out the site below for more!
