Family Trip Advice

My wife and I took a trip to Disney years ago but April will be our first trip with our Son (He's 5). Have those of you with kids had good experiences there? Are the cast members generally affirming of LGBT families? I assume most of them will be but don't want to take anything for granted. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!

We took our son (7 y.o.) this past September and had the most wonderful time. The cast members where outstanding with the whole family. We never felt out of place, even when our son told everyone we where his dads.
The cast members were even great at helping him deal with his ride fears.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply DVC Dan. We live in a very open and affirming area and my son is not at all shy about telling anyone he meets that he has two moms so I'm glad to hear you had a good experience in a similar situation.

I do not have a child of my own, but in December I traveled with my DW and my family. At no point does my nephew have a problem telling people that I am is his Aunt, and Aunt Ashlie and I are married. We never once felt out of place or looked down upon by CMs! Go be yourself, and don't worry about it!
