Last year was my son's first time to WDW. He was 2.5 and I must say he had a great time!! I was worried prior to going how he would do with the longs lines and the waiting but he did great. He never fussed once!! And here is why.....we had (drum roll please!) a portable DVD player!!!!!!! Yes thats right one of those portable dvd players that you can buy for like $80 at wal-mart to keep my little bundle of joy just that, joyful!! I took it with us everywhere!!! To dinner, to lunch, to the parks. I would keep it in my son's stroller and during a time we had to wait I would just pull it out and he would watch a cartoon. It was amazing how much happiness this electronic device could bring to my son and my family for saving our sanity during times of having to wait. My son loved WDW. But during those times of waiting for fireworks, or waiting for a ride, it kept my son entertained till the festivities could start. It was even great on the bus rides to and from the parks. I'm sure this tip has already been said but I just wanted to put my two cents out there on how wonderful it can be to have something to entertain your kids when they start to get restless. P.S. If you do decide to take your portable dvd player with you just remember to put it in a ziploc bag so it doesn't get rained on.
