Check to see who will be there and make sure your kids know who they are. On a daily basis you can check My Disney Experience to see which characters are doing meet and greets at any given park. Expose your kids to these lovable characters and their stories. It will increase the excitement for you and them. Now, that may seem like a lot of movies to watch before your upcoming vacation.
