  • Oh, and something else to keep in mind - for many of the rides, if one or more of your little ones are too small to ride, then you can do this ride swap thing where one of you gets to ride (with the little ones that can ride or by yourself), and then, as soon as you get off, then the other one gets to go, while the first one waits, so you don't have to stand in line twice.

    OH - and something else that's a good idea - invest in the big monster cups with the sippy straws. Even though they cost so much up front, in the end, they're worth it, because usually they are free re-fills all day on day of purchase, and cheap refills on the following days. Even if all you want to do is put water in them for your little ones, you can get them filled with ice and such so that way the water stays nice and cool.

  • baby leashes or strollers!!! lol...those are some crazy ages and one to many to a parent to not have some kind of lock on them. Matching shirts perhaps so you can pen point them out of the crowd? Always always always have water, snacks, and a mister or fan for the babies. Sun tan lotion every hour, tylenol, and aloe vera just in case! Gl and have fun

  • we have stayed at the all stars before and if you haven't i recommend getting the preferred room the only difference is that it is closer to the trolleys, if you will be using them. We didnt and it is alot of walking to get to the front of the resort and if you have a bunch of little ones hard on them too. that was the only problem we had, otherwise just have fun.

  • Snacks for in between meals and standing in lines and Crocs for everyone, they are ugly but so so comfy and I saw a lot of families with matching bright colored tee shirts or hats. I saw a lot of kid leashes but I felt bad for the parents with strollers except for the thin, sleek ones, the parents who had the massive "Cadillac" strollers looked like they had the blues walking through the crowds. Go out early and go back to the hotel for naps and rest and then go back out when the crowd has died back down in time for shorter lines and fireworks.

  • i agree with ALL the above... also ever think of looking into the speedy pass...if your a guest there u can get a speedy pass so u can cut threw some of the rides..waiting 10 15 mins is better then 45 mins. and for guest they open the park early so its guest only the pubic comes i think an hour later. also if ur place has a pool have pool time with the kids..to relax and get cool. now im going by my mother in law who goes to disney 2xs a year ( with no kids lol she is a disney freak ) but were going with her end of april ( our kids are a lil older ) but mil is a pro and these are the things i remeber her saying. but also agree a stroller that isent huge and easy to monver threw crowds. and 100% on bright color matching shirts on tag put name and number and were your staying. have a great time and enjoy...take a million pictures lol...

  • When my kids were little and we went to theme parks I would always take a Sharpie marker and write their name and my cell number on their arms. Someone can change their shirt but can't wash off a Sharpie pen. Also a note on safety - make sure you know what shoes your kids are wearing (people can change kids clothes, but usually don't change their shoes). Not trying to freak you out, just some safety tips.

  • join the disney mom's group. check out www.allearsnet.com and check out the unofficial guide to Disney from a book store or library. they all have a TON of priceless information.
