    Hi Kathleen!

    I've been taking my boys to Disney since they were born. There is nothing like seeing the magic through the eyes of a child. Here are some things I've found helpful when traveling to Disney with toddlers:

    * Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in all 4 theme parks.
    * For attractions with height requirements, you can use the Rider Switch option.
    * Bring something to help entertain her in line - favorite small toys, snacks, bubbles, etc.
    * Give her breaks from her stroller.
    * Try to stick to nap times.
    * Keep her fed and well hydrated.
    * I answered a question for another Guest with some tips on strollers that you may find helpful.
    * Your daughter will be able to ride any of the attractions with no height requirements. Here is a link to attractions that Guests of any height may enjoy. Keep in mind that doesn't mean that all of these attractions are appropriate for every Guest. You know your little one better than anyone so use your own discretion. I found at that age my boys were fascinated with colorful rides like "it's a small world", The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and The Seas with Nemo & Friends and shows like Disney Junior - Live on Stage!.
    * If you see she's had enough for the day, pack it up and head back to your resort. You may not get to do everything on your trip, but you will enjoy everything you do.
