    Midway Mania with a 14 Month Old?

    In August, we will be hitting Disney World for the first time (their first time, not ours) ever with our kids (ages 6, 3.5, and 14 months at the time of travel).

    Which FP: Flight of Passage or Na'vi River Journey?

    So, my FastPass booking window doesn't open for a few more weeks and I'm not even sure if all available options will be available when it does open, but I'd like to hear some thoughts on which Pandora attraction to book (assuming both are available) given my circumstance. I'll be traveling with...

    So, my wife and I have been to Disney a couple times before (and I with my family many times before that).

    Napping on Rides/During Shows: Okay or Fau Pax?

    Let's face it, vacationing at Disney can be an exhausting ordeal. All the walking, all the eating, waking up early, going to bed late.
