**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**
I’ve been to Walt Disney World many times. The fun and romance you can have at Disney without kids is something everyone should experience. THEN, we had a baby girl……and I knew she would love Disney as much as I do.
Each time we’ve headed to Disney World with our daughter, circumstances have been a bit different. Our first time, there were diapers to contend with and I was nursing. Tons of questions. Later on, for Disney Social Media Mom’s Celebration, she was still in diapers but drinking regular milk……yep, different questions.
The next time………well, we’re newly potty trained. Questions galore! Are there family restrooms? Preschooler-friendly toilets?
I used to spend hours and hours researching all things Disney before every trip. I discovered so much…..Free Disney Souvenirs, the best fireworks viewing spots (without having to pay theme park admission), how to wake up Tinkerbell at the Magic Kingdom and more. Friends and family call me to help them plan their trips.
BUT…….I always have a few new questions.
Thankfully, Lisa Battista has authored a book just for those of us heading to the most magical place…..with a preschooler.
Beyond the Attractions: A Guide to Walt Disney World with Preschoolers (2011) is a must have for anyone travelling with 2-5 year olds. Even if you’ve been there before, you’ll learn something new….I did. It answered questions I had about:
- Safety concerns and how to address them
- Child care services/Activities
- Bed Rails at the Disney Resorts
- The 411 on Strollers
- Smaller, Child-Friendly Toilets
- Height Restrictions on Rides
- …..and so much more
While it always helps to be flexible with preschoolers, especially when changing up their routines on vacation, Beyond the Attractions: A Guide to Walt Disney World with Preschoolers (2011) will help parents prepare and plan for the expected (and the unexpected too).
I recall visiting Walt Disney World for the very first time. I was celebrating my first anniversary with my husband. I vividly recall a conversation we had as we watched parents with infants and preschoolers throughout the parks. We said “No Way”. We swore we wouldn’t bring kids to WDW (as much as we loved it) until they were old enough to walk all by themselves all day long. I laugh at it now. I’ve changed many diapers, nursed, and carried my daughter oh so many times at Disney World……and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
For each family it might be different, but there’s such a sense of wonder and magic at the preschool age. It may just be the perfect age to take a child to Walt Disney World for the very first time…..and Beyond the Attractions: A Guide to Walt Disney World with Preschoolers (2011) will help make it that much more magical!
