How to avoid being one of THOSE parents – PREP116

I've witnessed some pretty bad behavior by parents at Disney World, so I have some tips for you today to help you prevent easily avoidable meltdowns.

I also have lots of recent news, and a quick tip of the day.

These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Avoid making these mistakes with kids on WDW trips

  • Make sure you have water at all times.
  • Plan regular bathroom breaks, and have everybody go each time.
  • Take nap/rest times as needed. Focus on having fun, not doing everything.
  • Stay flexible - re-ride rides, do things you hadn't planned on doing, etc.


  • Disney World gift shops and the Shop Disney Parks app have free shipping through November 22.
  • Captain EO's last show will be on December 6. 3D Pixar movie shorts will be arriving in its place.
  • Colortopia is now open in Innoventions and includes interactive exhibits that should be fun for little ones.
  • Star Tours now has a new sequence from The Force Awakens.
