This is for the mom's who may want more information on the baby centers. There are two baby centers one for DL and one for DCA. They both offer same services but have some differences. First off the locations for the DL one is just off Ma More...
This is such good information!! Thank you for going into detail what one could expect from these centers! I had no idea they offered more than just a room to change a baby in. Thank you, gives me hope that I can actually manage a trip with the wee baby, knowing there's an area I can take her to for whatever. - BrerPam 317.6 #934 5-15-17 2:49PMLikeReply
Very useful info @@@@grapesoda! As many times as my family and I had been to DL, I never realized of these services until I had my last baby! I learned of them thru a MW post and decided to give it a try. It's a very comfy little environment and perfect for tending to your little ones! - EvilPrincess 458.6 #551 5-16-17 8:04PMLikeReply
I love the baby care centers! I prefer the one at DCA, it's usually less crowded and a little more quiet but I love that they are available. - twinmomz 0.8 #0 5-16-17 8:46PMLikeReply

Thanks for the info @pikaplaid. I never think of a possible emergency or incident that would need security. But if something does occur then it's good to know what number to call - encinitasrunner 352.9 #768 5-6-17 9:55AMLikeReply
I noticed that yesterday too 😀👍🏻. Thanks for posting. This is a great tip! - DisneyDiane316 3492.3 #52 5-6-17 10:47AMLikeReply
FYI if an emergency does happen in the park and your not wheeled away they get a circle of cms to created a visual block around and can't get picks, I guess it must be for privacy or something but next time you see you know - pikaplaid 8128.6 #16 5-6-17 9:49PMLikeReply

#tips#WDW. So we've been talking about doing a trip to WDW but now getting serious about it. Will be me DW DD and DSIL. So I have lots of question I'd like to put out there. Looking at next spring, February march or may. Any time better? More...
Because our first trip to WDW was last year, we opted not to park hop. I wanted to be able to take it slow and see everything there was to see without the feeling of rushing to go somewhere else. This year when we go, we will park hop. My family was completely content to spend the entire day in one park as each one offers something different. The reason we are opting to park hop on our next trip is so that we can spend a little time at Epcot ( we didn't really like it there) and then spend the rest of the day in another park. Also, on the days that AK or HS close a tad early you can hop over to MK for a parade or fireworks if your like. - DarthTinkerbell 1633.0 #130 2-26-17 5:17PMLike(3)Reply
We did 5 both times. It seems a bit short but all the time we had. Adding on days beyond five is CHEAP. I think it's about $12 per day. So if you can do it...do it. We planned 1 day at each of the 4 parks and then the 5th for the park we felt we didn't get enough done (which was Epcot according to my wife). It is VERY hard to park hop. You will spend 30-60 minutes going between parks. If you have never been, there is really no need. Stay ON property. We have done Animal Kingdom Lodge (favorite) and Wilderness Lodge. When we went, there were AP discounts that got us I think 25-30% off. The lower "level" hotels had less discount. When you stay on-property, you get "magical express". That means you check your bags in at the airport here and they will show up in your room. NO need to get them in FL. The bus will take you straight to your hotel. We used only bus and Monorail transportation. Did not need cars. I would also suggest riding ALL the rides there. I think all the rides are somewhat different. Don't skip Peter Pan because you think it might be like what is here. You might consider the Premiere pass for ONE person for the discounts. Be warned it's 10% off merchandise there and MANY of the food places do NOT give AP discounts. I think we got AP meal discounts about 3-4 meals total there. Now break even on the Premiere pass is probably 2 trips at 5 days each or about 15 days in 1 trip. So not really needed for your entire party. Make sure you get the Magic Bands, register them and start reserving your fastpasses. It's been a couple years since I've been there, but that's what I remember. - DLKenCA 3632.3 #51 2-26-17 9:02PMLike(3)Reply
We are heading to the parks in a week or so and although we've been many times, we've always stayed across the street whereas this time we are not. Where is the best place to park? I've seen many praise the Toy Story lot More...
Here's my input: it depends where you are coming from and your plan for that day, meaning, are you leaving early or staying the whole day? I prefer Mickey and Friends because, its covered parking (most of it), you can walk to the resort, and the trams hold more people than the buses. - BaseballMickey 9156.3 #14 2-14-17 4:54PMLike(5)Reply
I really like Toy Story parking lot. I think it's because I prefer the openness instead of the closed structure. Also, even though the buses hold less people there are more of them picking people up at the same time whereas the tram, to me, seems to take longer. Also, getting out of the Mickey and Friends parking lot (depending on what direction you're heading) can be tricky if you aren't in the correct lane to begin with. - BAMBAM 1528.0 #0 2-14-17 6:28PMLike(1)Reply

@jacdanfan thanks for the tip. Do they offer this to you or do you have to remember to ask for it? - sultan 513.5 #478 11-17-16 7:58AMLikeReply
That's great. Crazy how WDW offers this but DL does not. Thanks - misschurro 9893.5 #12 11-17-16 8:09AMLikeReply
I always get mine... And pretty much you can use this mug to all the resorts hotel of wdw (as long as it is at foodcourt location and not the table service). - otilegna 2864.0 #60 11-17-16 3:10PMLikeReply
if there is a best buy near your local costco, they seem to fight for the lowest prices. i got force awakens for a few bucks less at bb than at costco when it first came out. but usually i find the best prices at costco. - MsTikiMermadam 2300.2 #83 11-16-16 8:46PMLikeReply

Are stolen strollers a problem? I had not heard that before ( though I am sure it happens) - wonderlandgirl 347.6 #785 8-31-15 1:48PMLikeReply
We once had a stroller taken while at Disneyland. We went about our day and while waiting for the parade a family walked by with our stroller! Luckily I slipped my business card in the handle. When we approached the parents and told them they kindly explained they found it and didn't realize out belong to anyone. I told the CM about the card and the family promptly gave it back. - fvbmermaid 237.8 #1651 8-31-15 3:08PMLikeReply
#tip And the best tip (well, tied with the Lilly Belle and the train tender ride) I ever learned on MW...ask to pilot the Mark Twain...sign the guest log and get a certificate to take home. Priceless experience. 😍

#tip If you're a budget conscious family like we are...the Big Thunder Ranch area is a perfect place to have a picnic and eat the lunch we bring into the park with us...and enjoy music, characters, crafts and the cookie decorating. 😃
