    2 adults and a 1 year old in WDW April 16-19. Want to plan itenerary in advance, want to know parade date time location and what we shouldn't miss for rides & attractions. Need to plan quickly. Less than week away, never been, no clue where to begin

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip, Christina! I know you must be getting super excited as you are just days away from visiting the "Happiest Place on Earth!" I wish I knew which parks you are planning to visit in order to better assist you with an itinerary and "must see" attractions. I would definitely plan to visit Magic Kingdom with your "little one." My "must see" attractions at Magic Kingdom include "it's a small world", Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mickey's PhilharMagic, and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular! All of these can be enjoyed by your one-year-old as well. If you would like to utilize the Rider Swap option, then I would also recommend experiencing Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Splash Mountain. Rider Swap is when guests take turns waiting with children too small to ride a certain attraction, then "swap" with another adult guest to experience the ride without standing in line twice.Our park planning strategy at Magic Kingdom is to start in Fantasyland, then visit Tomorrowland, Liberty Square, Frontierland, and Adventureland last.To view the Park Hours for the Magic Kingdom follow the link I have provided.You can also go ahead and view the times for the parades and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular by clicking on the Park Hours link that is highlighted on each specific day of the April Park Hours Calendar. Be sure to pick up a Times Guide and Park Map when entering the park for easier park touring, as well as, up to date park hours, parade times, and Character Greeting Times and locations. I hope this gets you started. Please feel free to write me back and let me know if you will be visiting any other parks and I can assist you with "must see" attractions for those parks as well. Best wishes for a Magical First Trip, Christina!
    Happy Planning,
