Epcot Really is a Park for Children We have heard many times from people in the parks and on the internet that Epcot is not a park for children. This is not necessarily true and we have listed below some of the things that children can do in Epcot's Future World and World Showcase.

Touring the Magic Kingdom with Small Children We made an extensive survey of wait times at the Magic Kingdom during the recent holidays. We have analyzed the wait-time results and have developed a touring strategy for seeing the most possible with the least amount of time spent waiting in lines.

Oh, Baby! Taking Your Little One to Disney The first thing new parents do when they meet their beautiful new baby is count all the impossibly tiny fingers and toes…and then plan a trip to Disney, of course. Well, maybe that isn't exactly how it goes, but chances are at some point as a parent, the urge hits to take your kids to a Disney park and watch them experience the magic for the first time. The question becomes: When? How young is too young?
