    What is your advice for a best experience at Disney for our group of 5 adults, with 3 kids 10 and 2 and especially with a 2 month old.

    Hi, John!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My very first trip to Walt Disney World was with a group much like yours; my in-laws joined my husband, me and our then 3-year-old and 5-month old. That type of group can enjoy so much that WDW has to offer, especially with a little planning.

    First, check out the VERY helpful Baby Care Centers, located conveniently in each of the four theme parks. When someone needs a diaper change, if Mom is nursing or if both the toddler and baby need a snack, these wonderful, air-conditioned areas have just about anything the littlest guests may need. We'd send the rest of the adults and older child onto an attraction that the little one could not enjoy, so no one felt as if time is being wasted waiting for someone else's interest or need.

    Next, check out this great link for tips on Walt Disney World with preschoolers. Suggestions there will help you craft a tour for the two little ones, enabling you to determine which experiences are perfect for the 10-year-old, too.

    For example, at Animal Kingdom Theme Park, if your older child wants to skip TriceraTop Spin, that is the perfect time to have an adult or two her to Dinosaur. In Magic Kingdom, you may wish to take your 2-year-old on The Magic Carpets of Aladdin while your 10-year-old rides Big Thunder Mountain Railroad with some grownups.
    To make those plans easier, create a My Disney Experience account and use FastPass+ to coordinate each person's day.

    Send more questions as you plan your stay, John; we love to help!
