    What are the activicties, attractions and rides for a 2,3,12 yr old. Its our first trip to disney world. We are coming on August 2019.

    Hi Omolola, 

    Because you’ll be travelling with two toddlers and a tween, I have a funny feeling that your family is going to be splitting up a fair bit in order to accommodate your kids’ diverse interests. 

    That being said, there are lots of activities that you can do as a family. First, look for any attractions that are suitable for Guests of “any height” because those are the ones that you’ll be able to enjoy together.

    Second, I highly recommend making time to watch Happily Ever After with your family at the end of one of your Disney days. All of the fireworks spectaculars are wonderful at Walt Disney World Resort, but there really is something special about watching the skies light up over Cinderella Castle. If you want to get a prime spot to see the show, I recommend finding one at least 45 minutes to an hour before the show. I find that a treat from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor makes the wait go by quickly! 

    If you want some more ideas for fun for your little ones, please visit the Planning for Pre-School Kids and Little Ones page. As for your tween, please visit the Planning Big Fun for Big Kids page. Once you get some ideas there, please come back and visit us so that we can help you narrow down your choices, especially for your FastPass+ selections. 

    Have a Magical Day,
