In just 28 days, we will be packing up the car, driving two hours north, and starting our first Walt Disney World Vacation as a family of three! Although I’ve been countless times before (and technically, Abby’s already been to Walt Disney World AND Disneyland) it will be the first time for us all together – plus, it’ll be even more fun since my sister will be flying in from Seattle to join us!
For this trip, we’ll be staying two nights at our DVC home resort, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – and living it up in our first experience staying at Club Concierge level (the only other time we’ve had club access was on our wedding night at The Grand Floridian, which was a super nice surprise upgrade, so I am excited for this). The main purpose of this trip was to coincide with the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side Weekend – I’ll be running the 10K on Saturday morning – but later, I found out that there would be a Dapper Day going on, too, so we’re excited for that!
I just ordered our magic bands for the trip, and am in the process of changing over my Annual Pass – but am way behind in booking any dining/fastpasses! It’s funny – I am really good at helping others with planning advice, but this trip seemed to sneak up on us, somehow! I guess having a newborn around contributed 😉
One of the nice things about this trip is that it’s very laid back – and at Abby’s age, I am totally aware that she will very likely not remember this momentous occasion (though there will certainly be a large amount of photographic evidence – obviously). I look forward to taking her back to visit as much as possible before she turns 3 and has to start paying admission, haha!
So, other than planning ahead that we’ll be moving slower, doing less, and definitely utilizing the Baby Care Center – what are your tips for visiting Walt Disney World with a young infant?
