Satisfy your appetite at family-friendly restaurants that serve up delicious food in a fun setting.
Here are 10 tips to make sure your trip is as magical as can be for your little ones:
Rent a Stroller
Even if your kids are past the stroller age, plan to rent a stroller (or double stroller) near the Main Entrances to the Disney theme parks. When your little ones eventually hit the snooze button, you can stroll around and enjoy a leisurely lunch while the kids stroller-nap.
Visit the Baby Care Center
Need sunscreen, diapers or other family essentials? Visit a Baby Care Center! It’s the perfect stop for those with infants, toddlers and preschoolers in need of a place to rest, relax or snack in our 4 theme parks—each one with a private room for nursing mothers and a waiting room for the rest of the family.
Use the Rider Switch
With Rider Switch, one adult can wait with the non-rider (or riders) while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riding Guests, and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again!
FastPass+ allows you to bypass long lines by visiting a ride or attraction during a designated window of time. Any time you can avoid combining a little one and a long line, you should! And best of all, it's free with park admission.
Use the App (My Disney Experience)
Download My Disney Experience—a time-saving, private-planning app—to your mobile device now! It will allow you to schedule or change FastPass+ selections, find out wait times on favorite rides, preview café menus and view your Disney PhotoPass photos immediately!
Kids love wearing their special bracelets—a.k.a. MagicBand—that, with a simple touch, can let them in at a FastPass+ entrance or unlock their Disney Resort hotel room door. And parents love using their MagicBands to charge restaurant and shopping purchases to that same room!
Leave the Photos to Us!
Memory Maker gives you instant access to all Disney PhotoPass photos taken of you throughout the parks. Shots are then linked to your My Disney Experience account and made available for download. So relax and let our photographers capture many of your magical moments!
Fuel Up with Mickey Check
Here's a Disney secret that should be shared: Disney Parks have healthy, balanced meals for kids—and grown-ups too! Look for the "Mickey Check" on the menus and you will find a meal with carrots and apples or grapes with a nice protein to keep them going!
Charge Devices on the Go
We've all dependent on our mobile phones these days, but if your mobile device dies in the middle of the day—as they like to do—no problem! You can always purchase a portable phone charging system at kiosks located throughout Walt Disney World Resort.
