    Your answr rocked! 2nd?: we're staying @ ShadesofGreen & I know the boys will need breaks but I wld like to avoid going back to SOG. They will nap anywhere (yay!), so can you suggest some good quiet areas in each park & places the boys can just RU

    Yo, Cristine! Glad the advice hit the spot. My goal is to now bat 1.000 for you (because I could never swing those kind of numbers playing real baseball. Have you seen my headshot?!)

    Quiet places in each park abound. I've had kids sleep in the parks while attached to me in some way, shape or form, whether it be in the Bjorn or in a toddler hiking backpack. The stroller nap has always eluded me with my boys - I envy your success! Here are some top spots:

    Magic Kingdom
    • Hall of Presidents
    • Tom Sawyer's Island
    • Grassy knolls to the left of Test Track
    • To the left of Universe of Energy
    • Garden on the right side of the France pavilion
    Hollywood Studios
    • One Man's Dream (awesome place if your child is sleeping in a stroller or carrier - gives you lots of time to take in the incredible details.)
    Animal Kingdom (mecca of quiet spots)
    • Pangani Forest Exploration Trail
    • Maharaja Jungle Trek
    • Tree of Life area

    If you can cart your boys around in a stroller and/or carrier while they're napping, consider getting a couple things to help you enjoy the details as you meander throughout the parks. A few of my favorites are the Imagineering Field Guides, Lou Mongello's Audio Guides and the Hidden Mickeys book.
