Walt Disney World

My wife and I will be taking 2 small children to Walt Disney World in Florida in 2 weeks. I get to go as a bonus thru my work. We are staying at the Hilton. My question is what is the weather like down there in January? Any good ideas on what to see and do with twins that are 2 years old? I am kind of looking forward to it. A chance to get out of Iowa in January. Oh well, enought blabbing. Any responses are greatly appreciated.

Your children will have no recollection of the event except through the pictures you take. So, spend the first day taking a lot of pictures near rides and such.

Spend the rest of the time drinking and eating. Try to find somebody to sit for your brats.

I took my girls(4 and 5) last year.

SeaWorld was great for the kids.There is alot of interaction with the animals up close for the little ones(polar bears,killer whale tank,shows ect.)not to many rides to worry about.

Also on the same thought disneys animal kingdom goes along way for the smaller kids.(again not to many rides)

But for you and your wife.Universal studios and Islands of adventure(my mother and uncle both work there) have a program for couples with small kids.Ask when you buy tickets.Not to many people know about it.You wont have to stand in line.You go in the exit.only problem is you will have to take turns going on the rides alone.One waits in the waiting area with the kids while one goes on the ride.then you switch out.

good luck,have fun and let me know if you need more info.

Best to time to visit WDW is in Jan and Feb. Temp usally is between 69 - 75 degrees although sometimes you will get an 80 degree day or a 50 degree day.

It is WDW off season so wait times will be minimal we been to the park durring this time and waited 15 max on the most popular rides compared to an hour and half durring spring break or summertime.

There is so much to do in Orlando are you staying at the Hilton at downtown disney? If so between the shops and the kiddie area and WDW you should be set.

Word of advice if you want to do any character dining I would suggest calling now to get a seat (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463). For the kids under 3 usally the Crystal palace is the best since the the characters are all the Pooh characters. Buffet style food and is surprizingly good.

Let me know if you have any other questions i'll be glad to answer them.

I don't think your kids will remember anything, but if you go to the Magic Kingdom and let them interact with the costumed characters that roam around the park (e.g. Mickey Mouse) and take some pictures they may someday believe they have a vague recollection of the trip. Otherwise, you might as well do things that you and your wife will enjoy.

Good advice....although unless he is going for a convention and has to stay at the Hilton, there are less expensive places to stay especially in Downtown Disney or even on Disney property....

Allears and Mousesavers are great websites, but the best for all Disney trip information is:

www.wdwinfo.com

It has a discussion forum that covers ALL aspects of traveling to Disney including tips for traveling with young kids, any special discounts available, do's and don'ts, and even has a forum to let you tell about your experiences. It tells you what is shut down for good or just being remodeled or rehabbed....if you have anyone traveling with you that has any sort of Disability or Special needs it's the place to get the best info.


I'll post more from home.....

Actually the park entry will just be for you and the wife children under 3 get in free.

If you eat at the park figure if you eat at non-services restaurants figure Burgers, sandwichs, salads $6-7 and drinks $2 roughly. Service restaurants lunch is a few bucks cheaper $15-$40 per adult depending on the resturant or character dining.

Then it just depends on how extravegant you want to be with snacks, trinkets, soveniers, ect.

Which Hilton are you staying at, if you don't mind giving that out?
