Quick tip of the day

birnbaumsTo help your kids prep for a trip, watch videos of Disney World attractions on YouTube. I've included them in all of my park guides and you can also search YouTube for whatever ride you're interested in.

Another option is to get the Birnbaum's for Kids book which has pics and ratings for things like how scary the rides are.
