Planning our ‘first’ trip to Walt Disney World


A lot has happened in the last week: our family has been trying for a while to figure out the best time to make another trip to Walt Disney World, and we’ve decided that mid to late May will work best with our schedules. I call this a ‘first’ trip to Walt Disney World because there will be a lot of firsts…  We’re staying at the Fort Wilderness Campground (first time in a cabin at WDW), we’re sharing our cabin with my parents (hopefully a good first?), we’ve never been in May (we usually visit in January), and this will be the first trip for our daughters, who are one and three!

We have the room, park tickets, and airfare booked, but now it comes to the dining reservations and FastPass+ reservations.  I’m a planner, and as you can tell by the fact that I have a Disney themed blog, a pretty big Disney nerd, but knowing in December where we’ll want be and what we’ll want to ride 153 days in the future with a toddler and a three year old is pretty tricky.

There will be a number of updates coming with thoughts, tips, ideas, etc. while we plan for our nine day trip, including the use of MyDisneyExperience (the app), how to prepare a three year old ready for her first Disney trip, what restaurants and attractions to look for with kids, and more.

Have you been to Walt Disney World or Disneyland with a toddler?  Are there certain rides, restaurants reservations, or restrictions you think we should know about before we go?  What was your experience like?  Leave a comment below!
