Let's discover 10 ways to make your family vacation even more magical!
1. Use a Travel Advisor
Using a Travel Advisor eases the stress of planning a Walt Disney World vacation and comes with a wealth of knowledge so you can focus on creating incredible memories with your family. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with journeying with a trusted travel professional and have support every step of the way. I connect all the dots for you, streamline your planning so that you can efficiently experience Disney parks, and personalize itineraries around your vacation style, preferences and interests.

2. Visit the Baby Care Center
Located within all 4 theme parks, Baby Care Centers provide a convenient place to feed, change and nurse little ones. Offering more than just privacy, the centers are staffed and feature a host of helpful amenities for parents with infants and toddlers. The Baby Care Center is complimentary to use and includes private nursing rooms with rocking chairs, a changing room with tables and restroom, a feeding area with highchairs, a kitchen with microwaves and sinks, a main waiting room with seating. On site shop offerings include: formula, baby food, juice, diapers, wipes, sunscreen, and over-the-counter medications and clothing for purchase. This is the perfect place to take care of infants, toddlers, preschoolers and regroup before heading to the next attraction.
3. Rent a Stroller
Even if your kids are past the stroller age, plan to rent a stroller. There is a ton of walking at Disney parks and it can be exhausting. Eventually, your little one may stroller-nap while you stroll the park or enjoy a leisurely lunch. If you'd like I can arrange stroller rentals for you helping to make your vacation even more easy and convenient.
4. Wear MagicBands
With a simple touch, you can unlock your resort hotel door, enter theme parks and water parks with valid admission, charge restaurant and shopping purchases to your Disney resort hotel room, connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account. MagicBands are wristbands that resemble a bracelet or a watch and that allow you to effortlessly access planning and allows you to travel lighter. Kids love wearing their special bracelet and parents love the convenience!
5. Get in the Photos
Leave the photos to Disney Photographers. You can purchase Memory Maker for your trip. Memory Maker gives you digital access to all Disney PhotoPass photos and videos taken throughout the parks-even attraction photos! I love Memory Maker and add it to my vacation package each trip. You get iconic, professional images. The images are linked to your account and are easily downloaded. You have the rights to these photos and can print pictures when you get home. With Memory Maker you don't have to search for nice strangers to take your pictures and mom or dad isn't left out. Memory Maker allows the whole gang to get in the photos and captures the magic so your family can look back on incredible memories for years to come!
6. Charge Devices on the Go
Buy a portable phone charger before your trip. Most of us have become dependent on our mobile phones. Between taking photos and using the My Disney Experience App, phones can die easily in the middle of the day. If you forget to bring the charger, don't worry because you can purchase portable phone charger systems throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
7. Stay at a Disney Resort Hotel
The magic never ends when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel. You experience the same legendary detail, service and storytelling when you stay at Disney hotel. From fun themed rooms of some of our favorite Disney characters to complimentary transportation, staying on Disney property truly enhances your experience and makes your stay incredibly easy. You get to stay in hotels that bring fantasy and adventure of Disney to life. There's so much to do like poolside movies, activities and campfire s'mores. Staying in the middle of the magic also lets you take advantage of special offers for Walt Disney World room and ticket packages. Complimentary motor coaches, ferryboats, Skyliner, and monorail services are available to take you throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Complimentary transportation allows you to sit back and relax and be transported closer to the parks. How easy and magical is that?!
8. Use Rider Switch
Rider Switch allows adult guests to take turns waiting with littles or non-riders while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riders and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the line again.
9. Visit All 4 Theme Parks
Disney's Hollywood Studios lets little kids play big from Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway and Star Wars to Disney Junior and Toy Story Land. Discover 6 enchanted lands at Magic Kingdom Park filled with adventure and fun for even wee little ones. Soar on Dumbo the Flying Elephant and be inspired by the majesty of Cinderella Castle. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park come face to face with fascinating creatures, ride through a wildlife reserve or fly on the back of a banshee in Pandora-World of Avatar. There's beauty in nature and animal experiences that your whole family will love. Discover the sights, sounds and flavors of 11 countries at Epcot. Set sail on a voyage to Arendelle on Frozen Ever After and board a clamshell and help find Nemo. There is a world of fun and wonder at all the theme parks.
10. Character Meals
Maximize your time by dining with Disney characters. Throughout the dining experience, some favorite pals will make appearances throughout the restaurants. They will make serval rounds throughout your dining experience giving you more than one time to interact and wave hello.
