Hi Bee’s –
So the entire family is jetting off to Florida tomorrow morning for a Disney Family Vacation. There are a lot of little ones who are very excited about going. I am really excited to see everyone….BUT it’s Disney, thousands of screaming kids, I am a bit nervous I will be a damper at times.
I’m totally the “You’re not you when you’re hungry” stereotype.
Any suggestions on how to survive Disney?
My sister lives in Florida, so we aren’t spending everyday at the theme park, but the entire family will be together for 6 days.

I looove Disney and my family has gone there a ton, and I have to say that there really aren’t that many screaming or misbehaving kids. Since it’s Disney, they usually oscillate between super excited and passed out from excitement. Honestly, the teenagers there are usually worse!
The best thing to do is to have a plan for each day with snack breaks and “omg it’s so hot!” breaks included. Know what rides/experiences are most important to everyone and make sure you hit those. I think there’s even an app now that tells you what the wait times on rides are. Also, don’t be afraid of hurting anyone’s feelings if you need a break. Just say “Hey, I’m feeling really tired, so I’m going to head back to the hotel to rest for a bit. I’ll call you later so we can meet up again.” It might save you from getting super cranky and blowing up at a family member.
