Ok MWer's. This dad is looking to take his 2.5 year old on a Daddy/Daughter trip tomorrow. A little nervous to be in the parks without my wife for the first time, but excited about the great time we will have. Any advise. Oh and we have a 4 hour drive.

Write your cell phone number and name on her tummy with a sharpie just in case you somehow get separated (has never happened with me) and take a pic of her with your phone so you have a current pic in the clothes she is wearing that day. By NO means am I saying you are irresponsible and will let anything happen to your mini, I just know those little rascals are quick and have their own agenda at times, LOL. Plus the parks have been super busy. It's better to be prepared and not need it. Also, take breaks with her and stay hydrated. Find spots with a/c just take the day slow. You'll have a blast! - CM_tamstirr  558.5 #361 9:50AM
This. I saw a woman have her phone number in huge numbers on her toddler daughter... It isn't uncommon. - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 9:53AM
I did it to my 6 year old son when he went to an MLB game with my husband. He is too little to remember a phone number but he could remember to show anyone with a name tag his tummy and say he's lost. - CM_tamstirr  558.5 #361 10:25AM
Great advice CM-Tamstirrr! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:48AM
They have family bathrooms so you don't need to bring her into a men's room. Have fun! - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 9:46AM
Oh, good. Glad to know about family bathrooms! Phew! 🚽πŸ‘ͺ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:47AM
Yeah they have them in a few locations. I remember someone posting about it. - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 9:50AM
The baby center also had mini toilets - starwarsmamma  561.6 #360 9:54AM
I wasn't sure of his daughters age (cause apparently I can't read lol) so yes baby centers are great too! - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 9:59AM

If she is potty trained, does the baby care station have potties for little ones to use? I have to think they do. Do NOT send her into the girls room by herself, and I probably wouldnt want to take her in a men's room either. Take frequent breaks, and have fun! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:47AM
Yes the baby care centers have small pottys for the minis. I believe they have to be under 40 inches to use them. - CM_tamstirr  558.5 #361 9:52AM
Pack some snacks. Maybe some juice or water bottles for her. Since it's a special day, maybe get her a shirt or princess tiara to commerate the event. Make sure to take a picture together too. - Tiggerific  341.7 #699 10:06AM
Have a wonderful daddy/daughter day...go at her pace, stay cool and have a great time - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 10:09AM
You'll do great! - sbminnie  134.8 #2965 10:28AM
Look for Baby Care Center. They have stIcker to put phone number on. Also good place to change and get water. In both parks - DLKenCA  2630.1 #49 10:46AM
Thanks for the great advise! We are looking forward to the trip. Hope to see some of you in the park. - TangledsDad  256.4 #1285 11:24AM
I have seen several gues write their phone number on bottons and I thought that was an awesome idea. My daughter loves playin in the water at Bugsland. Keep hydrated an tons of sunblock. Oh and she loved Turtle Talk lol - CM_DumboLuvr  26.8 #6302 12:00PM
If written with a sharpie on the skin it won't wash off easily. I had to use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to get it off my son. My only fear with a button is it could fall off or be removed easily. - CM_tamstirr  558.5 #361 3:07PM
Go to the Disney Junior Live Stage Show in DCA. They have added Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins. If u watch Disney Jr channel she will know them. Cool place and interactive for little ones. - antetr95  1894.4 #89 3:20PM
