    Hi from Montréal! Went 3 times myself, but first time with kids (6b, 4g, 2g). Planning on staying onsite and take Deluxe DP. Any tips to make first trip memorable, especialy for my 4y princess? And tips to manage my 2y old?

    Hi Marie-lyne! Your children must be so excited about their upcoming Disney trip!  I'm glad you are staying on site as that truly gives you the best experience possible!

    Since you will be traveling with a princess make sure you book one of the princess meals. I suggest the one in Epcot in the Norway pavilion as it gives you the most meet and greets of the different Disney ones possible. While in Epcot check out the main character greeting area where you can see the fab five, Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Donald. The other children will love that!

    You can look into booking  the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for the four year old and then possibly the Pirates League for the six year old where he can become a Disney pirate complete with the look and costume! All of the children might enjoy the Pirates and Pals fireworks cruise as well that leaves from the Contemporary resort.

    Since you are traveling alone with the three children you need to be well organized when heading to the parks. All strollers must be folded when using the bus transportation so don't let them become the carry all for all your goods as it becomes impossible to separate bags and strollers and kids in a timely manner when catching a bus. Be aware of what might frighten your youngest and avoid those type of attractions. There is plenty to see and do in each park for the ages of your children so you won't have to worry about that. Some attractions have dark rooms or loud noises and two year olds can sometimes be affected more by that then older children so if you need just ask the cast member outside each attraction what it is like inside before getting in line.

    Take your time and don't try to see or do it all! Let the kids help dictate when its time to pack it in and head back to the resort. Enjoy pool time and just enjoy being together and relaxing! I just spent a week alone with my six year old grandson with an Adventure By Disney trip out west and it was truly magical!
