I am curious as to what other forumites do to help build their youngest child’s anticipation to go to WDW.
Needless to say, for older children (say 5+) and everyone older, we don’t need to have our anticipation built up for going to WDW.
We are going back to WDW in September for my son’s third birthday - it will be his fourth trip since November 2005. To help get him excited for the trip and what he will see, my wife and I looked around for books and videos dedicated to the WDW resort aimed at toddlers. We didn’t find anything.
So I ordered one of the free WDW Vacation Planning DVDs from Disney and as a reward for good behavior, we watch the DVD and tell him that this is where we are going, this is what we are going to do, and this is what he will see. He really seemed to like it! As we get closer to our departure, we plan on letting him watch more of it.
I am curious if anyone else does something similar with their youngest. Are there any books or DVDs aimed at toddlers that you have used successfully? I would love to add another option to the DVD that we are already using with success.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
