    WELCOME to our happy home - yes we all have TONS of tips and more information than you can shake a stick at

    :D

    Please ask any and every question you can possibly think of and someone will be right along to anser your questions - I took both of mine at those ages and had a fantastic time.

    I suppose my top tip is try not to do too much too quickly and take things at their pace, thye will need rests, they will also all need buggys as there is a LOAD of walking involved

    You will have an amazing trip

    but forst and foremost welcome aboard - make yourself at home and please please please post any questions that come to mind :D

    Hi and welcome. Sounds like you have a wonderful trip planned. There will be loads of tips on here. When we have taken our children/grandchildren over we tend to go at a steadier pace and let the children lead. Don't forget pushchairs - if the kids don't need them you can load your daily supplies on them

    Welcome to Disney Secrets!

    What fun! A multi-generational visit to WDW!

    As everyone has said, plan to take things at the children's pace. They'll be fascinated by things that you don't even see! And strollers are a must--even for the five-year-old. As sunsetlakes noted, they may not spend the entire day in them, but carrying an exhausted child through the parks--particularly in the heat and humidity--is miserable for everyone! If you have enough adults to go around, single strollers that fold easily work best.

    Is this your first visit to WDW?

    Yes, Welcome and congratulations on putting together an event that your family will remember for years to come!

    A tip for you..think it is still a protocol. You can sort of ride share if you have little kids. Maybe someone can explain it better, but tell a cast member that you have very young ones and somehow they let you go on the ride and then switch off with the babysitting..oh boy I feel I have flubbed this one..a little help anyone>
