Amusement Parks

How do you make taking your toddler to an amusement park easier and safer?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I’ve taken my daughter to Disney World twice, and we’re planning another trip for this year. Before we stepped foot inside the park, I explained to my daughter that there would be many, many people there, and that it would be very, very easy to get lost. I told her that she needed to hold my hands at all times if she wasn’t in her stroller. I set that expectation up front so that she wouldn’t be surprised, or upset, by it inside the parks.
