How to Avoid a Family Meltdown at Disney World!
|Cara "chillin" in July|
Boom! It’s on! “The next kid that whines is gonna get it!” We’ve heard dozens of parents say this every day of our vacation. Sadly, we’ve said it a couple of times ourselves! We’ve identified the problem, now let’s find the solution!

7:00 leave resort for Magic Kingdom
12:00 leave Magic Kingdom for resort (catch burger in park if we are up to it)
4:00 leave resort for Epcot
Our trips went like this every single time, until recently. Why did you take 4 hours in prime time you ask? Because kids need down time! They don’t need scrunched up in a stroller sleeping in the heat time. They need flat on their backs (or in our babies case on tummy butt in the air) time, in a dark and cool room. We would take a shower, change our clothes and rest ourselves. You’d be amazed and what wetting your hair will do to your body temperature!!!
When I see parents dragging kids around the park, whining, pitching a fit, screaming, or just walking very tired I want to take the parent and square up their shoulders and say listen to me now. You will thank me later. We all need that midday break now. It’s a given! I did mention we did this until recently, I’ll discuss that another day. Until then remember this, you are on vacation and you don’t have to do every single thing to prove you had fun at Disney!
