My husband and I are taking our children (7 and 9) to WDW in August. What do you recommend taking with us to the parks? Also, I assume the moms do all the taking. What's the best "container" to carry all of our neccesities?
- Asked by William from NC on 3/30/2008
I usually bring a small backpack into the parks. I find backpacks easier that bags with straps because it helps me keep my hands free. By the time my kids were 7, I had really pared down the list of items that we had to bring... read more
This may be a silly question but here goes; I read somewhere that the Parks can become "full" and you can be denied admittance. Does this ever happen? If so, if you go early, leave for mid-day break, could you then not be able to return/or enter

There's no need to hire anybody(although this would be a good idea during tantrums!) You should be able to take advantage of the the "baby swap" program at Walt Disney World. For parents touring the parks with little tykes, this is a great way to... read more
I am reading the advice correctly? It sounds as if the 'extra hours' actually make that park more crowded. I thought the extra hours would allow for faster line times and less crowds. (We will be there Easter week 2009).

Cary,Extra Magic Hours (EMH) work well for some families and less well for others. Some of the "Moms" on this panel love to take advantage of EMH, and others try to avoid them. As a general rule I avoid the "EMH" parks, because... read more
