18 Things I Learned from Listeners About Going to Disney with Kids


Take lots of money, 17 years ago cans of pop from vending machine In hotel were like $4, can't imagine what the prices on everything is now. They gouge you in any and all ways

Buy a Disney photo pass dvd online before you go. It''s cheaper and worth it!!! Use the those photographers as much as possible. Also have breakfast at Magic Kingdom with Winnie the Pooh. You get pics with them, you get in early, no one is sweaty and crabby yet and you can get great family photos on front of the castle without a million people around.

Plan one day at the park and then a rest day and then a park day and so on. That is how we did it with a 4 week old, a 4 year old and an 80 year old.

Bring a stroller. Or rent one from an outside source so you can bring it all the way back to the hotel room. Kids pass out on the bus ride! You don't want to carry them all the way back to the room. Find places that sell Disney snack packs for kids. A few healthy choices that is the best value we've found. Take breaks and don't be afraid to go back to the hotel for a mid day nap! Over all Remember the goal isn't to do everthing. It's the enjoy the things you do get to do with your family!!!

I would suggest going to a park in the morning, coming back to the hotel around noon. Do a nap if they need it with some time by the pool, and then maybe going to another park at night for dinner, rides, and fireworks. It's what we did growing up. Make sure to check out the fireworks! Really beautiful.

Decide what you must do at each park and plan your day around that. Get to the busy stuff first thing.

Bring in plenty of your own snacks and water.

Don't push yourself or you will be miserable.

Was behind a lady doing this not too long ago and thought it was genius. If you have a target red card, buy Disney gift cards and get your 5% off! I hear they're good for anything on property.

Bring snacks and eat in line. We had groceries delivered to our hotel and packed snacks and lunches everyday.

Go to the Bells Cottage! You won't be sorry. It's amazing!

Get autograph books and do the meet and greets.

Have a plan, don't think you can just wing it

Cyndi Sparby Hit up the dollar store before you leave and buy ponchos for the whole family. I've never been there and not experienced rain at some point, and they are beneficial. (They sell them at the park, but at Disney prices, so.....💸💸💸)


Remember what finger each person uses to get in for the first time because u will need to scan ur magic band and finger each time u enter a park. Also hold onto ur kids magic bands my daughter lost hers she went to the bathroom and hit it on the toilet seat and got flushed down and didn't notice till she washed her hands. You only need the magic bands for getting onto the fastpass rides and into the parks other then that you don't need them.

You can bring food into the parks. Bring reusable water bottles. Starbucks at the parks will fill up your water bottles for FREE!

Bring a good back up charger for your phone. You are at the park all day and you can search for more fast passes and access maps from their app.
