Hi, all! I'm hoping for some advice and tips on visiting TDR with a toddler! We are planning on going to the parks in the cooler months of 2011, so we all aren't sweating to death and the crowds won't be so bad (knock on wood). I'm hoping for a halloween trip, but it's still up in the air. Also, I've heard from friends about TDR denying entrance to those with visible tattoos (I know it's prohibited in pool areas). I have none, but my husband has a few on his arms.
1)What are the rules on bringing outside food/drinks in?
2)Character M&Gs - My little one adores Stitch. What are our chances of getting a photo with him? what about some Toy Story characters? I know Mickey has his own little area in Toontown for photos, is that open all day?
3)Now, I know that rides like Space Mountain and Splash Mountain aren't options to take the wee one on, so anyone know if TDL does the rider swap thing?
4)I read somewhere that tripods aren't allowed - true?
5)Last one - Drive to the parks or take the train? We live on a military installion about an hour to two hours (depending on city traffic) away. I haven't crunched the numbers on train fare vs. road tolls yet, just unsure of the better option, although I think I'm leaning towards driving. What is the cost of parking there?
Thank you in advance!
