    Hello ,we are visiting disney in october ending for the first time...i have a 3 year old girl and an infant..So please can u guys help me to plan the trip ,tips and things to get and type of clothes...and also the places to visit with my 3 year old..

    Planning a trip with 2 little Mouseketeers is a lot of work, but it will be worth it to enjoy the magic through their eyes!

    I remember taking my kids when my daughter was 3 and my son was 8 months old.  Here are some tips I can give you as I look back at how I traveled:

    -Bring a double stroller with plenty of storage/basket space
    -Each day to the parks, have a bag packed with diapers, snacks, crackers, extra clothes, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, camera, autograph book, and lightweight blankets
    -When entering the parks, locate the Baby Care Centers for changings and feedings
    -Stay on your little ones' schedules as much as possible. This means mid-day breaks for naps and early bedtimes (I know this one is tough, but late nights just won't work with small children.)
    -Plan mealtimes and make some character dining reservations
    -Bring rain ponchos and umbrellas for any expected (or unexpected!) rain
    -Check Weather.com a few days before you leave home to pack accordingly
    -If traveling with another adult, use Rider Swap so everyone can enjoy the attractions.  Read about that and other helpful tips HERE.

    I hope this helps!  If you need specific information, just let me know.  Have a great time and take lots of pictures of your magical Walt Disney World vacation!
