Not many more sleeps now until we leave on our Disney adventure. Today I had the pleasure of sitting down with two local Disney panelists from the WDW Moms Panel. I met Kaylene J. and Chris G., who filled me in on SO many tips and ideas for what to do once we get there and how to do it with two small children. I really like what Chris said, “let the kids dictate when and where we go…” Makes so much sense to have the kids lead the way! So when they’re tired (mommy too), we’ll go back to our resort and nap. When they need a break, we’ll head back to the hotel and swim. We have decided it’s not going to be a GO-GO-GO trip where we must see everything.
I had NO idea about the Riders Switch Pass. If Emily and Daddy are on an amazing ride that she loves and I want a chance to experience it with her, I simply use the Riders Switch Pass. That way, I get to essentially cut the lines and “switch” roles with Daddy! No lines, no fuss and Em gets to ride that attraction twice! That, in combination with FASTPASS, should be a pretty good way to get around the Magic Kindgdom!
I also learned that I shouldn’t give up hope on Disney dining! We still have a chance to eat at Chef Mickeys! I just need to go at a not-so-busy time and ask to see if we can get in! I was told the make-your-own-sundaes are NOT to be missed!
Kaylene gave me some amazing tips on what’s on the calendar at Disney while we are there. The SpectroMagic Parade is definitely on the hit list, as well as Wishes Nighttime Spectacular! I’m getting so excited thinking about all the fun we’re going to have.
Not much time left to prepare. So we’ve got a little over a week to pack, plan our route and do some more research! Thank you so much Chris and Kaylene for all your help today-it was great to meet you both!
