Amy’s Trip Report – PREP190

Amy recently returned from Disney World on her trip that included a split onsite/offsite stay, a family with 4 children (including 1 with special needs), and a last minute change of trip dates. Hear how it went.

I also have a quick tip to help you find water in the parks more easily.

Quick tip of the day

Emailed from Julie H.:
“Our family of 6 relies on getting ice waters from quick service counters on our trips. It’s just too much to bring in that many water bottles every day. We found that not only is mobile ordering good for food, but when we just need some quick cups of ice water, we went to the mobile order line.

We didn’t order them ahead of time, but often they had waters just sitting there waiting to be passed out or they would kindly get us a cup. It saved a lot of time to not wait in the regular line for just a cup of water.”

I really thoroughly enjoyed this. I have 5 children and would love to get more specific details on the private driver you could just text. That sounds completely perfect for us!!!

What was the brand of the inflatable car seat that Amy used in her recent trip?

Great trip report, but it made me a bit nervous about our upcoming AKL stay (ironically for my daughter's 5th birthday!). I hope the Cast Members get it together...
