Disney World

We (Mom, Sis, Queen Lucy and Skaterboy) are going to DisneyWorld this coming August. (Yes, I know August is hotter than hot, but we have school & work restrictions regarding dates.)

Queen Lucy is six, by then Skaterboy will be three and a half. Our "game plan" is parks in the morning, and pool in the afternoon. We figure the best way to have a good time for all is not to view this as "must do everything" vacation. We have a place with a kitchen so that while we will have some meals out, we can make tuna sandwiches and other kid friendly foods.

Any advice? Best Disney book, ride, meal? Helpful hints?

Also, any good ideas for the plane ride down?

Gosh, it's been a while since I was at DisneyWorld, but I've been to Disneyland out here in California. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" really is a great ride, and they just revamped it because of the movie.

"It's a Small World" was a hoot too, though you do get sick of that darned song!

Have a great time, whatever you end up doing.

We went a few years ago when my kids were 5 and 8. They were very into getting autographs from the characters. We got the autograph book, but left a page blank next to the autograph. When we got home, I put a picture of the girls on the page next to the autograph. At the end of each book (they each had one) they each chose some pictures from our trip.

I suggest sneaking in a few easy snacks - granola bars, fruit snacks, etc. I find when kids are hungry, they are hungry NOW, and you can't always get the food you want when you want it at Disneyworld.

My last suggestion is to remember it is mostly about the kids. I've never seen so many adults yelling at kids as I have seen at DisneyWorld. So just relax, go with the flow, and have fun.
