Going to Disney? Couple of Tips...
Whether it's your first trip to Disney or you need a little refresher before departing for your next trip, here's a couple of tips when traveling with kids...
*Absolutely bring a stroller that is easy to fold and unfold- and small enough to fit on a crowded bus
* Make reservations to a character breakfast or dinner
* If possible, stay at a hotel where you can take the monerail to the Magic Kingdom- that's where you'll be the most with little kids
*The motor coaches that transport you to and from the different parks from your hotel run on a 20 minute schedule
* Bring ALL of the confirmation sheets that Disney sends you before you depart- we had a lot of trouble with our reservations and the only way we could prove what we paid for was with these
I think any of the hotels on Disney property are good-we have stayed at the All Star Music and had good transportation from the hotel to any of the parks. You are going to pay alot for any of the monorail resorts. Check how to save money at Disney for more tips.
Also staying in a home nearby is a great idea..most come with cribs strollers, full working kitchen, video games and are located about 5 mins ti disney. It's cheaper on meals and gets you away from the hustle and bustle. We have stayed at The House by the Mouse (in Windsor Palms)and it was great! For the cost of a hotel room we had a 3 bedroom home with a private pool.
Early November is a great time to go... little or no lines, and decent weather
We highly recommend the Crystal Palace Brunch at Magic Kingdom. The food is outstanding which makes it well worth it - and you get personal photo ops with Tigger, Pooh, Eeyore & Piglet. Epcot now has a "chcaracter spot" that perpetually has 3-4 characters inside to take photos. A lot more Minnie & Mickey sightings there of late!
