Re: First Time with a Toddler
I took my children from the time DS was 14 months and DD was 2 months.
My best advice is to forget about touring the parks like an adult and view from a childs point. They do not have any real fear at that age so it is a perfect time for the haunted mansion. We took them on all the family rides, they loved the boat rides and dumbo type attractions along with the carousel. AK and Epcot work as long as you stick to the slow moving attractions. Some of the dark ones in the parks are a perfect speed and darkness to put them down for a nap. Ellen in Epcot, HM in MK.
Evenings we always to them to the pool and hot tub for some down time.
We never hit "our" favorite attractions again for about 4 years until my DS was ready to graduate up to some bigger attractions. We would do 6 or 7 hours in the park and done. It really is a great place to spend some family time with little kids.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
