one thing for sure: 2y.o. has nothing to do with Disney Parks. I hope they don't charge this age. But the visit is all about your enjoyment. A 2y.o. just needs comfort

both of our 2yo loved meeting pooh bear and wearing a cute princess dress to the parks. those were some of our favorite toddler pictures. dont let anyone deter you from enjoying your family time with your little one. if u have AAA, live in socal or are military you can get a small fraction off tickets but there are no disney bargains anymore.

Dude/dudess asking about deals here. If you think paying $100 gate and then exiting prematurely cuz a toddler is cranky is a deal - then sure. I think Parks are only worth exorbitant admission if you view it as a tuition to educate yourself and your children - which in the case of a 2y.o. is NOT happening

I agree with SinglePapa that a 2 yo doesn't have the endurance for a full day at the park. However, kids under 3 are free. If you can afford to plan a short enough day, a two-year old could probably enjoy some time there in the morning and back again after a nap. It's a much smaller park than DW -- especially if you skip Adventureland.

It's great at least no third pass is required. But you won't be able to fully participate in most worthy activities, with a 2y.o. in toe. Then, on the bright side, that fact takes you out of the longest queues lol. Have fun anyway! Even partly fulfilled project is better than none

lol, i completely agree that she will most likely not remember much or know what is going on, or the fact that we will be able to enjoy alot of rides. Me and wifey had said no to Disney until at least 4-5 yrs....but shes been watching too much "Let it go" on youtube.... its gonna be our only trip this year since it will be pretty expensive.

I've got lots of family there, so not totally going to CA for Disney only. Now time to find a deal on car rentals...

Check out flyertalk -- there are usually codes available. I don't know about mousesavers -- if they have codes for CA as well as FL.

not extremely blacked-out dates, so u'll have no problem.
1. make sure u r free Emerald, so u can just get into any car in the Aisle, and drive out. If u have AMEX (maybe needs to be Platinum), u can even be free Executive.
2. if u have zero idea about rentals, throw your dates into autoslash and tell us what they come back with

Try eBookers.com -- actually I get better prices with their app. They are out of England, so you do pay in GBP -- check currency exchange on xe.com -- they are not always the best price, but sometimes come in really low.

I booked a car for this week -- today through next Sunday (10 days) for SEC Men's Basketball in Nashville with a drop off in Memphis for $224 -- including liability insurance and no drop off fee. Most were coming in at about $600 and the next best price was over $500.

You do have to pay in advance. You can't make changes without a fee and possible price increase.

Disboards [disboards.com] is the place to go for questions about DLand and looking for any kind of discounts. They also will have the best insight on tickets. It's their religion.
