I am a Mom of six children ranging in age from 11 on down to 3. We have been "doing" Disney every other year since our eldest was 3.

Some tips I would love to pass on to other families with smaller children! My FIRST and best piece of advice for when you go to the Magic Kingdom, is to get there as early as possible. Since we have a Villa, we do a nice early breakfast and hit the park as soon as we can. When we arrive we make a BEELINE for Fantasyland! Once there we grab fastpasses for The Pooh Ride- a MUST DO! Then we ride Dumbo, the Carousel and then it is time for Pooh. After Pooh, fast pass Peter Pan and ride Snow white and It's a Small world! Then it is time for Peter Pan!

By going to Fantasyland first, you get the greatest kiddie rides done with minimal wait. After this area is done, we check our time and hit any other place we want. At about 1, we head to the car to go home for lunch and a dip in the pool. This gives us time to nap the little ones and let the big ones relax!

By 3 we are ready to head back for a great evening!

Hope this helps! We have done it for many years and has lead to happy memories!
