    I am bringing my 8wk old son to the park, what can i do with him? (i have an 6 & 3 yr old too)

    Jason,

    Your 2 month old son will actually be able to do almost everything that his older siblings can!  Disney is by far the most family friendly theme park around, and the vast majority of rides there do not have height restrictions.  I have taken my daughters as newborns and they rode (and slept through!) the rides with no problems at all.

    There are a few rides that your 3 and 6 year olds could ride that the baby could not.  Because your children are still quite young, I do not think that the cast members will allow them to ride without an adult present.  One exception might be Goofy's Barnstormer, a child's first rollercoaster.  You can ask the CM at the entrance if that would be possible.

    Another option would be to hire a babysitter to accompany you to the parks.  He or she would be able to take your older children on rides while you wait with the baby, or vice-versa.  I have never used childcare so I cannot make a personal recommendation.  However, I can give you the contact information for a couple of local services.

    Fairy Godmothers (407-277-3724)

    Kid's Nite Out (1-800-696-8105 or kidsniteout.com)

    I know for certain that Kid's Nite Out offers parent's helpers to accompany you to the parks, but I'm not sure if Fairy Godmothers does or not.

    Good luck, and have a great vacation!
