Travel Tips

Embarking on a trip to any Disney Park with the family can be an overwhelming task. From choosing the right hotel for your family and transportation to your chosen park, not to mention every little detail in between, there seems to be countless options and directions. Enlist the help of some Disney Park experts, specifically moms, dads and grandparents who have been there, done that and provide honest feedback, tips and travel suggestions.


With nearly 40 experts on board contributing to the forum, the Disney Parks Moms Panel boasts a wide variety of moms with a range of family backgrounds. The site began with just 12 members doling out first-hand Disney Park advice, and now hosts nearly four times the contributors.

Each panelist provides a unique take and preference from single moms providing Disney Park insight and moms of three or more children to military wives, Air Force moms, cruise expert moms, Florida locals and everyone in between.


With nearly 80 children between them, the panelists have extensive experience with family travel, traveling with kids of all ages and taking Disney vacations in general.


The Disney Parks Moms Panel is a great resource for families and individuals considering a trip to any Disney location. With experience traveling with kids, friends, grandparents or even solo in a variety of situations to Disney Parks, the online forum offers a wealth of information.


Before booking a trip, consider your options with the Disney Park Moms Panel and see which park is right for your family from Walt Disney World Resort or a Disney Cruise to Disneyland Resort or Disney Vacation Club.
