Last Monday, we gathered for our weekly #TMOM Twitter Party to discuss Disney vacation essentials. We asked where was the best place to take your toddler, your favorite songs on your playlist and what was your biggest challenging when capturing a family photo during your vacation.
Here is recap of questions and our favorite answers:
Where is the best place to vacation with toddlers?
Best Answer: @Sapphiresinjail Somewhere where there’s a daycare for parent break time lol 🙂
@lovethemouse The beach! Toddlers like to get wet, dig and play on the shore. Walt Disney World has pools that fit the bill perfectly!
@CindyRichards It’s been awhile since I had toddlers, but the best place to vacation w/ them was at Grandma’s house!
@CarissaRogers We took toddlers to POLAND of all places, stayed w friends who had mac-n-cheese cheese though (ALL THE DIFFERENCE!)
@bobettacj Disney by far.
@vampiregoddess8 Local museums like the Please Touch Museum.
@Judy511 Beach resort, or rent a beach house
@eliorahgr_chat I think beach resorts are great (all-inclusive) or we have a family cabin on a lake that is great too!
@MamasMisson Disney World!
@09jojo09 Disney OR Tennessee Smokies.
@thisfamtravels Cruises for sure – food, fun, easy access to your room, pools, scenery! Cruises have it all!
What song on your playlist works for everyone in your family?
Best Answer @Travelermom I was ready to kill the fox by the end of that trip (in response to tweet about “What Does the Fox Say”)
@Melinda74 Anything update on Radio Disney is awesome.
@MamasMission The song “Happy” even the tots know all the words.
@ChrissyDSexton Absolutely anything by The Beach Boys.
@lovernsavers Let it Go—we ALL sing along.
@SPN-Mom I would say Hey Brother.
@ppre732 Safety Dance LOL!
@09jojo09 My kids love Wrecking Ball.
Where were you when your electronics died, and what did you do?
Best Answer: @blondefabulous I killed a cell phone with boob sweat. Don’t ask.
@faveplaceSsue Fell off the pier and into the lake! Was sitting there with 2 yr old staring at it on the bottom, unable to fetch it!
@RWeThereYetMom iPhone died while looking for hotel in CA last summer – had to use a paper map! gasp!
@CindyRichards At the airport trying to find my husband who was picking me up.
@travelermom A cruise to Alaska- couldn’t take more amazing pictures. My charger wouldn’t charge my camera battery.
@rychepet I don’t think any of my electronics died…just the batteries! Grrr!
@triwivesclub In a zodiac at the WC Ironman start, when I remembered my battery was still in the room”charging.
@CarissaRogers ON OUR HONEYMOON our camera died (20yrs ago no digital) can you imagine?
@TeresaShaw The electronics always die in the car on a long road trip. What happens? Chaos. Mutiny. Tears.
@rychepet Worst—in Hawaii and went to change rolls and realized I had NO film in the camera…argh!
@lovernsavers Batteries on camera died when visiting St Augustine – had to find a store QUICK!
@4jlessad Mine died when using Skype so I missed seeing a graduation of a family member.
What is your biggest photo vacation challenge?
@SheBuysCars Getting in the pic w/my fam. But w/ #LumixLounge my PHONE is a remote!
@Nupur_Ghosh My camera fell into the bay when I was kayaking.
@Travelermom Taking night time or low-light pictures.
@TripsWithTykes Trying to photograph 9 cousins under the age of 5 at a family reunion. No one would stay still!
@lovernsavers Getting my kids together to take the pic and look happy about it.
@AmyCamin Getting everyone to smile and look at the camera! Impossible!
Share your best family vacation photo and where it was taken.
@4jlessad We always took the same place pic— the entrance to Wilderness Lodge. Seeing the kids change is priceless.
@travelermom My favorite vacation photo was taken in Kissimmee—shows the personality of my kids.
@triwivesclub Hired a photographer to go with us camping capturing pics in yellowstone and jacksonhole. Best thing we did.
@Nupur_Ghosh My fave was a pick with Nemo.
@lovernsavers River Walk in San Antonio.
What special effects do you wish your camera had?
Best Answer: @MamasMission Making me look skinny!
@aprilsprg A flash because I use my iPad.
@FiveMenandALady The ability to freeze my sons. Lol!
@SPN_Mom Better lighting.
@Teronya There is also a GREAT stabilization feature – helps the shakiest of hands, like mine. (about the Panasonic Lumix camera)
@vampiregoddess No bad picture effect… takes a bad picture and makes it look like you intended it to! lol, idk!
@Mrs_Sendejas Make my kids actually smile.
@medarcie Scratch ‘n’ sniff would be pretty awesome!
