    We have two little ones ( 4 and 2) and one adult who might as well be classified as a little one :tongue: What do you do in line to keep everyone happy and melt down free? Our kids are used to small parks where the wait time is maybe 5 minutes and then on the ride. I have to say I'm a little worried

    I make friends :tongue:

    There is lots to see while in line so you always have that stuff to talk about. You could play I Spy or look for Hidden Mickeys. You could do age appropriate trivia.

    My kids bring their handheld video games and ipods with them on vacation. I usually play on my phone while waiting.

    We love to people watch. We decide what a certain person does for a living, what nationality they are etc. We also play Scrabble.

    Not much use for your children though Shelly

    I think lines stink for every age group. I once stood in line for Peter Pan's ride for 40 minutes. I thought I was going to go postal. It was the middle of July and I felt like cattle. Not to mention I had two small-ish children in front of me that kept using those wind/water sprayers. I kept getting sprayed. While I would have loved a nice cool spray with water, I didn't want back splash from their face and body.

    I like to people watch and talk with others sometime. Sometimes I look back over my pictures and delete those that are not what I want. To be honest, I'm not one of those people that take outside devices into the parks. I like being without modern electronics while visitng wdw. I tend to leave my phone in the room and I would never drown out the best disney noises with music from my ipod. Just my opinion.

    We also spend time in line deleting 'bad' photos.....and smiling/laughing at the others.

    These are all ideas that have worked for us in the past. I think this is the one time I am going to miss being at WDW with just the two of us..
