When you are planning a family Disney trip there is sooooo much that goes into it! We just got home from our family vacation yesterday, so I am fresh with ideas and ready to share them! There are so many tips and tricks that I have learned along the way since the day we booked our family vacation, we will call these “mommy hacks”. Since you all have learned by now I do not love to make my blog posts long, I will give you an overview of a trip here and then break my “Mommy Hacks” into several easy to find posts! 🙂 Ok, so we booked our trip with a wonderful Disney agent on the phone after searching online for a few days to find just what type of resort we wanted. I highly recommend doing this. Disney World offers so many affordable options for every budget. We go every year and have stayed in many different places. This time we chose to stay at the Art of Animation. We had heard many wonderful things about this resort and how kid friendly and appealing it was. Sophia, our four year old, was so excited to stay here. We let her have a part in the booking process. She chose the Little Mermaid room. I will stop here and say, this room upon arrival was adorable but incredibly small. We stayed in this room two of the nights and due to the size and all of our belongings and double stroller we did have to upgrade to the Nemo rooms which are bigger suites. The rooms are all themed here. Nemo, Little Mermaid, Lion King, Cars. ( I will give a full review of the hotel in another post! ) * Booking with the agent on the phone was awesome! She helped us to know exactly what we needed. How many days of parks, the Christmas party, meal plan! It was worth it to make the phone call! We chose to book our airline tickets separately because we had JetBlue points. I joined a Moms Planning Disney Facebook group! This helped so much too! I learned some neat insider tips on the parks, restaurants, and things you just don’t think of that other moms do! If you have Facebook… join this group! I also downloaded the My Disney Experience App. Here I would check on reservations for meals and fast passes. I will explain more on this too!!! Lots of hacks here !! 😍 ( lets just say I got to know the cast members very well the last few months) The entire week was magical from the moment we landed and met Sasha at the airport… she is my go to Babyquip Orlando girl. I’ll tell you all about that too!!! No need to bring my stroller I rented one from her!!!! ” Speaking about transportation, I can’t wait to tell you about the Minnie Van. Kiss those crowded shuttles good-bye. Mommy Hack” The Bibbidi Boutique was the highlight of my daughters week… or was it eating at the Royal Table, or Be our Guest, or meeting Vampirina?!?? We did it all!!! And I cannot wait to tell you all about it! Like I said I will break my Disney blog posts into ” Mommy Hack” topics for easy navigation! I hope these help you to plan the best trip for your family!!!
