We did try to make the best of it.... He's behavior was exactly always good...it was just that he was getting scared. I hope to stay at the Beach Club Resort when the kids are older. Yes B&C is on DDP. The good thing about using it as a back-up is that they don't take ADR's so you have just as good a chance of getting in as everyone else. If you don't get there super early like we did, plan to wait for a table for an hour....but there is plenty for the kids to do in that general area to do to pass the time if you are prepared for it. Yeah Liam's still too young for ear plugs or headphones. I just think he was overwhelmed with all of it. But I think it a great tip for anyone's first visit to have a couple pairs of ear plugs in their park bag just in case....even if it's just for the fireworks. I can't imagine repeating this trip with another kid......I'm that gun shy about the whole experience. ESPN Club is a great place to go with the DH's (no kids). Liam is really good in restaurants.....except a few at Disney! That picture of Liam has been turned into a 5x7 and given to the grandparents....it's very popular! The Boardwalk area is a great place for some free/cheap entertainment for an evening. Plenty of places to eat and shops to explore. Thanks! I think he will be OK when he's older....he needed more time to warm up to certain things then we were able to give him. Thanks! Beaches and Cream reminds me of really good diner food!
