Re: entertaining kids in line at Disney?

Snacks work for us. We dont normally wait in a line that is more than 30 minutes or so. Fast Pass as much as you can. Do the popular stuff early. The majority of the lines move have you moving the entire time and my 2 girls never really needed anything extra to do. They are 4 and nearly 2. I second a good carrier. Holding a little one in line is a killer!

Re: entertaining kids in line at Disney?

As others have said, fast pass as much as possible. Also, research "rider swap" for the 2 year old. I'm probably not explaining it well, but for our family of 5, we were able to get 4 fast passes for a ride (the 2 yr. old doesn't have a ticket and doesn't get a fast pass). On any rides that the 2 yr. old isn't tall enough to ride, we would all approach the fast pass return line when our window opened up. I would ride with the older 2 while the attendant give my husband a pass to return any time that day to get up to 4 people through the fast pass line. He would watch the 2 yr. old explore while we did the ride. We would collect rider swap passes throughout the morning, then, when the 2 yr. old would nap in the stroller later in the day, he would take the older two to "walk on" to 4-5 rides so he could experience them and the kids got an extra trip on some great rides.

We used the few lines we had to wait long in as a time to snack. We were so busy throughout the day, that the kids did amazing in lines with a bottle of water and a bag of Chex Mix (ext.) to share.

Have a great time!
