    Hello! What are the best attractions for a 2 year old boy? It will just be me and him. We will be staying at the four seasons and attending the High school cheer competition on feb 10th and 11th.

    Hi Kathy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You all are going to have so much fun exploring the parks together in between the cheer competition performances!

    If you can go to two parks, I would suggest Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom theme parks. At Magic Kingdom, there are so many attractions for little ones. Try Dumbo the Flying Elephant, the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, "it's a small world," Astro Orbiter and Mad Tea Party. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, try Na'vi River Journey, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and The Festival of the Lion King show. Also visit The Boneyard play area, the Colors of Mo'ara face painting kiosk, the drum circle and take time to see the many animals at the park!

    Remember that there are several character experiences at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom. So be sure that he gets a chance to see some of his favorite characters. If you want to see a few characters without waiting in line, try doing a character meal at Chef Mickey's (located at Disney's Contemporary Resort Hotel), The Crystal Palace (located in Magic Kingdom) or Tusker House (located at Disney's Animal Kingdom). 

    Kathy, review the Planning Guide for Pre-School Kids and Little Ones and the Disney Parks Blog article - #DisneyKids: What Kids Are Loving About Pandora - The World of Avatar.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
