Fun, rides, treats and happy faces are normally the first thoughts that come to mind when thinking of a family trip to the theme park. Follow these tips to create memories that you and your children will cherish for years to come:

Keep the focus on the kids. Half the thrill of going to the theme park is watching the kids have fun. Select rides that complement his or her interests and be guided by the choices. Trying new things is good to cultivate exploration, but even little ones should play a part in choosing their own adventure.

Keep the right pace. An overly stimulated child may have a meltdown. Select a few must-dos and then be led by the mood. Trying to do everything with a child in tow will be exhausting and he or she may be pushed beyond their limit. Instead, take intermittent breaks throughout the outing.

Know when to quit. Be receptive of your child’s emotions. Signs of tiredness and frustration are valid reasons to end the trip.

Be prepared. Before starting your day of fun, prepare snacks in the full kitchen inside your unit at Westgate Resorts. Plus, be sure to have your trusty sanitizer handy for those pesky little hands that will inevitably touch everything in sight during your adventure.
