Moms Panel Monday: Multi-Gen Travel Tips to Walt Disney World Resort

posted on November 16th, 2015 by Leanne O'Regan, Director, Social Media, Disney Parks


Growing up in Orlando our family vacationed often at Walt Disney World Resort for birthdays, celebrations and holidays. At least once a year it was a multi-family trip with aunts, uncles, and cousins. We packed the suitcases, the dogs and grandma into our family station wagon and made the trip to Lake Buena Vista. Those were good times and great memories.

Today’s Moms Panel Monday question comes from Kathleen in New York who wants advice from our Disney Parks Moms Panel on how to plan a Disney vacation when traveling with different age groups.

This was a popular question for our panelists who offer up some great tips on how to manage everyone’s time together so each family member has a magical experience. Read here how you can plan for everyone to get the most from their vacation when traveling with a large family.

For this week’s Moms Panel Monday, Tenisha from North Carolina is asking for advice on how to make the most of her family’s first trip to Walt Disney World Resort. The family, with their two pre-school children, will be arriving during the Christmas break.

A Mom’s Take: Benefits of Being a Disney Vacation Club Member

posted on September 24th, 2015 by Amanda Adler, Public Relations Manager


Summer may be over, but the summertime magic never ends at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort in Florida. This Disney Vacation Club Resort, located two hours southeast of Walt Disney World Resort, is a relaxing hideaway that offers warm sand and sparkling blue waters. And because it’s a Disney Vacation Club Resort, you can book larger rooms – 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and even 3-bedroom Beach Cottages – all with full kitchens, making it the perfect spot for an extended family getaway.

Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is one of my very favorite places, and Disney Parks Moms Panelist Juliette agrees. Watch this video to see why she loves vacationing there with Disney Vacation Club.

Ever wonder about the best way to experience a Disney vacation with a baby or toddler? Recently, the Disney Parks Moms Panel has heard from several guests on this topic and have been able to offer great, real-parent advice on how to make the most of the trip.

Here, several panelists with preschoolers of their own give tips to a mom looking for the best hotel option her 3-year-old daughter’s birthday vacation. From resorts conveniently located on the monorail, to those with theming fit for a princess, check out the panel’s recommendations here.

Moms Panelists also lend their advice to a mom bringing her 8-month-old to Walt Disney World for the first time. I love that many of the panelists have visited recently with babies and can offer tips that worked for them, like utilizing the laundry service at the resorts and taking advantage of the Rider Switch option in the parks so that parents and older siblings can still experience thrill rides. For even more ideas, be sure to check out the full post on the Moms Panel site here.
