Tips and Tricks for a large group at Disney World?

I've seen questions about Disney parks on here, but I'm looking for specific tips for a trip with tons of little kids - both in Florida theme parks and on the Disney Dream ship. What has worked for you?

I am going on a fabulous and free-to-me trip this fall. It will include 11 children (ages 1 year to 11 years), eight adults, and two grandparents (in their early 60's). We will spend four days at the Florida Disney parks, a day at Universal Studios Florida, and then a 3-night cruise on the Disney Dream cruise ship.
I've been on a cruise before, and I've been to Disneyland a few times. I've even done both with small children. But with so many kids, there are often times when they are too small to ride something the grown-ups want to ride, thus somebody has to sit with them and entertain. I'd love some good ideas to keep a group of toddlers/young kids busy at the theme parks when they aren't riding anything. I'd also love some tips about individual parks (For example, my brother really loves Epcot, but it doesn't sound like an exciting place for kids. Is there something especially cool there they will like?).
I'd also happily accept any tips you have for traveling with so many little ones or for going to theme parks for 5 days in a row. It sounds exhausting.
