One of the most popular topics we receive questions about at the Disney Parks Moms Panel is how to travel with little ones on a Disney vacation. What attractions can they enjoy to how to pack with a toddler in tow, are a few examples of the questions we receive. The panelists each have their own way of navigating the parks with kiddos, and today we are sharing some of their best tips to help you with your summer travels to Walt Disney World Resort.

A day in the parks can be tiresome for your tiny princess or prince. For this reason, Lindsey P. recommends purchasing a park hopper pass to make the most of your vacation. “Our family likes to arrive at the park opening to see the most we can, but we also know our kids are early risers. While the Baby Care Center offers a quiet place to rest or gather much-needed supplies, there’s nothing like the quiet of your hotel room for a mid-day nap, which lets you visit another park in the evening.”

Character meals are always a favorite of little ones! Donyell recommends dining at Chef Mickey’s. Little ones can interact with Mickey and his pals while enjoying a scrumptious breakfast or dinner. It’s definitely a must-do dining experience for all ages in her opinion.

Priscila is the mom of two little girls and highly recommends renting a stroller from one of the four theme parks. By renting from a Walt Disney World theme park, guests do not have to carry and break down their strollers on Walt Disney World Transportation. She also loves that the stroller is left in the park and does not take up space in her resort room.

  • Isn’t she a little cutie! How sweet.
    We used a small umbrella stroller with a shade panel for our then little one, packed juice, water and some yogurt in a little chilled bag and paced ourselves to a toddlers ability. There is no need to rush and try to cram everything in.
    If you enjoy the first trip with your toddler, more will follow through the years. 🙂
    It does help to stay close to the Magic Kingdom in one of the resorts with the monorail as it does lend itself to quick exists if the baby needs a nap and parents need to recharge too.
