    Any suggestions when planning a 3 year old and 1 years old's first trip to WDW?

    With children of your age, first and foremost take full advantage of the baby-care center facilities at each of the Disney parks.   Here you can change diapers, find supplies, and have your kids take a break from the weather and crowds.   Once I used these facilities, it really made my visits much more enjoyable for us all.

    Now, for planning your trip, I suggest staying at a Disney hotel close to the parks.   At those ages, your children may be in need of an afternoon break.   You can slip out of the park and take them for a short nap or dip in the pool, then head back to the park later.    You may also want to plan ahead for a character or princess breakfast or lunch.   Your three year old in particular may really enjoy this.

    If you are traveling with another adult, also consider using "baby swap" to allow you to experience rides not for your young ones.   The Disney cast members can explain which rides are eligible and the process for using it.  This will allow each adult to ride, the second right after the first completes their turn.
