    How do we keep a 12, 10 and 2 yr old happy at the parks considering their age differences? Older daughters have been to WDW before but will be the first time for 2 year old. Any suggestions?

    Hi, we have kids from 16 to 7 and faced a similar dilemma last month.  The 16,15, 13 year olds didn't want to do what the 7,8 and 11 year olds wanted to do.  We were feeling divided but discovered dividing and conquering the park worked well.  One parent went with the older ones and one with the younger ones.  We would meet back within 90 minute intervals or connected by cell phones.  There will be attractions your two year old will be to small for and you will utilize the baby swap.  You might even be amazed your older ones may enjoy taking the younger ones on the attractions too.  I would also recommend a stroller for your two year old.  We always brought our own umbrella stroller that reclined.  Hope you have a fabulous trip!!!
