Vacationing with little one's

My wife and I took our 3 and 14mo to DW for a few daysand our 3 DD loved it, she is still talking about it and we're going again in late September. Our 14mo had a terrible time, guess we should not have left her blanket in our resort room. Also, she was somewhat scared of the characters, but warmed up to them. All in all, we had a good time, but come September, we will have a great, magical time. Hope you have a great time as well. Enjoy yourself and have a magical vacation/ wedding DisneyJan10

Hi all just joined the Dis Board this weekend. My husband has been reading for a couple weeks. Still trying to figure everything out. I see several people asked about making the counter I want to do that too--will check out newbies Forum. Just wanted to say Hello! Going to WDW Aug. 2009 w/free dining plan--can't wait!

I haven't been to DW since I was 8, in the mid 1980s and at that time we only had one day to spend at the park.

DH and I have two daughters. One will be almost 3 and the other about 15m. I'm looking forward to tips and hints about enjoying the park with two young children.
WELCOME! How exciting ... a Disney Wedding AND first time visits for your children! Your 3 year old will have a ball; the younger one may be so-so. Just remember to take a favorite blanket, toy, whatever is needed to make your child feel secure. Don't know what your budget is but I would definately recommend staying at one of the resorts on the monorail. My absolute favorite is the Polynesian. It's quiet, peaceful and beautiful! Your main park will probably be the Magic Kingdom but you should enjoy Hollywood Studios (Playhouse Disney is LOTS of fun ... even for your youngest child) and Animal Kingdom as well. EPCOT may be a little to "grown-up" for your children but make an effort to enjoy it also. If you just take a stroll through the World Showcase countries (the ride in Mexico is fun for kids) and The Land and especially Living Seas would be fun for the children. The fireworks may scare the kids (during granddaughters 1st visit at age 4 her Dad would have to get her out of the parks before the fireworks began! ... or get her on a ride so she wouldn't hear the loud sounds) but if you stay at one of the monorail resorts you'd be able to see the fireworks without the really loud noises! Decide on at least one Character meal. They are such fun and you'll be able to get one-on-one attention from the characters ... and GREAT photos!
Do lots of research the next few months and you've gotten a good start by signing up on Disboards. I'd make a decision on which resort you want to stay at ASAP and get your reservations made. Purchase a WDW with Kids book and read it from cover to cover. You'll have so much fun planning and I promise you'll be as "hooked" on Disney, as we all are! Good luck!

Hello to all! So excited I have found this place. I have been a fan of all things Disney since my first trip to WDW in 1976. Boy how things have changed in 30+ years.

I'm approximately the same age as the MK, so my wife has agreed that we will go sometime in 2011 for my, and the MK's, 40th. I'm already excited even though I'm two years out. Thank goodness I found this board!!

I'm sure I'm just missing it, but is there a link to a thread that will teach me how to add a signature, add a banner, pick an avatar, etc? Thank you!
