    Any tips/ideas for traveling to WDW with an 11 month old. We are new parents and taking our daughter in 42 days :) I feel like I am not prepared. Did we bite off more than we can chew :)

    Hi, Jacqueline!  Hakuna matata - no worries!  I've done Walt Disney World many times with a tiny one in tow, and while you do want to be prepared, I always found it easiest when they were this portable!

    Make sure you have extra of the things you think you''ll need - diapers, wipes, and changes of clothes are things I always took extra.  You can purchase all of them there, but it's nice to have your own brand.

    You want to have some pint sized snacks.  I always took zip top bags of the snacks my girls would eat.  If your baby is used to something, it's best to have it with you.

    Stay hydrated.  Remember that little ones dehydrate quickly.  Hit the air conditioned inside often and push fluids.

    Try to stick to a familiar schedule.  I was really fortunate that two of my girls could sleep anywhere, but the third one had to go back to the resort for naptime.  Work with what works for your baby.

    Most of all, cherish the memories!  Make sure you get as many pictures as you can.  Use PhotoPass as well, so you aren't always the one behind the camera!

    Have a great time!
