    Hi Mark L. I am writing to see if you have any "single parent" tips as you always mention you and your son. My son and I come to WDW and love it! Any secrets to share a single Mom. Jake iscelebrating 10 and a daredevil with rides.

    Hi Nancy!

        Sometimes people view being a Single Parent as limiting and a trial, but I view it as an opportunity and freedom especially when you are on a vacation in Wlat Disney World!  Since you are vacationing with one child like I do in Walt Disney World, you have such an incredible opportunity to spend time with your son.  I would let your son help plan your days in the park, such as letting him decide where he would like to eat or the rides that he would like to ride.  I typically do the planning, but lately I give my son a day at the end of the vacation to be "his day" where he gets to choose everything.  If your son is really interested in something, then you can make more time to examine and discover it.  Also you can let your son pick some of the restaurants that you plan to eat at.  My son loves 50's Prime Time Cafe, Sci-Fi Dine In Theater, Teppan Edo, and the Nine Dragons Restaurant.  If you are willing to accompany your son on wild rides, then you can have fun together on those rides. My son really loves Disney Quest (an interactive video game heaven) and the water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.  Also he loves to play mini-golf.  We both love the Pirate and Pals Fireworks Voyage too.  There are tons of options for you both to have a great time together in Walt Disney World!

    I hope that you and your son make some magical memories together on your next vacation to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
