    Suggestions for travelers with first time toddlers!

    My family and I have been coming to WDW for over 20 years, but next fall we are taking the first grandchild for the first time. She will be 18 months when we travel. Any advice?

    My boys refused to sleep in the pack and plays when they were little so if your grandchild is like them I recommend asking for bed rails. As far as I know all the Disney resorts have them. Definitely bring a stroller that reclines and has an umbrella so the little one can nap comfortably at the parks! I would also suggest bringing child size spoon and fork for convenience.

    Have fun! I agree with goofy mom: combfortable stroller that is easily folded up.

    18 months...hrm.

    Stroller. Bring PLENTY of baby wipes and carry them around. Useful not only for diaper duties, but great for cleaning up sticky hands and faces after munching on a Disney goodie!

    I'd do split days, so he / she can nap (and so can you).
