Preparing for a family vacation sounds like a dream come true until you realize how much work goes into packing for multiple children. With almost 10 bags at hand, our trip to the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa was smooth.
After meeting with other influencers and Walt Disney World team members, we grabbed dinner and made our way through Epcot, a theme park dedicated to foodies looking to taste the world without traveling around it.
If your little ones love Finding Nemo and enjoy underwater creatures, then they’ll love The Seas with Nemo and Friends. It’s a quick ride and the kids will enjoy the experience of the clam mobiles. There aren’t any seatbelts, so make sure the little ones are seated.
A Magical Experience
To get the most out of your visit to Walt Disney World, you’ll want to keep in mind a number of things. Below are five tips to keep in mind when traveling with kids, includes what to pack.
- Plan to bring something for the kids to ride. This doesn’t have to be a stroller. We brought our Radio Flyer wagon. It also helped with lugging our 10 bags over to the room.
- Wear comfortable shoes and skip the flip flops. Although flip flops can be comfortable at times, they won’t be functional at a theme park. Closed shoes work best.
- Decide what you’d like to explore. Walt Disney World is huge, and it might cause some anxiety with kids. Not to worry, if you do your research then you should be fine. We know our kids love certain characters so we’re planning around those events and theme parks.
- Create a plan. After figuring out where you’re headed, you might want to know how you’ll tackle these locations. We decided to do two parks in one day during our stay. We’ll be sure to update you after to let you know how that goes.
- Stay flexible. Although it’s a great idea to have a plan, you’re better off staying flexible during the day. Anything can happen with kids, and the last thing you’ll need is added stress.
Our first night was short, but we managed to tired the kids out. One of the perks of theme parks is the amount of exercise you get from walking everywhere and the kids get tired out as well.
