1. Be an Annual Passholder  Depending on how many times you plan to visit the parks each year, an annual pass can be a big money saving item! I even wrote a whole post about how to pick the best AP for you! With an AP you also get a % off dining, hotels, and merchandise in the parks and select Downtown Disney locations.   2. Target Red debit card With a 5% savings on red card purchases, buying Disney gift cards and using them in the parks is a smart little trick! Disney gift cards can be used inside...

We are...

My kids are definitely distracted eaters also, so less sounds and people around make it easier to feed them. I have used the breast feeding area to both breastfeed and pump. Only moms and babies are allow...
