    What are the best parks to visit with 2 year olds?

    Hello, Laura!

    Touring Walt Disney World with 2-year-olds in tow will be so much fun! The sparkle in little ones' eyes as they witness the magic for the first time is're in for a treat!

    Of course, all of the parks are toddler-friendly, so you can't go wrong at any of them. However, Magic Kingdom is a must, for several reasons. This is the heart of WDW, so the magic meanders around every corner; there are plenty of attractions, too, which will delight Guests of all ages, but are calm enough for even the littlest of Guests. Many character greetings can be found throughout MK, so photo ops abound!

    My second-favorite park for toddlers is Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. My toddler was gaga for dinosaurs and creatures of any kind, and AK has so much interaction with them, you'll have a full day there. Don't miss Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition for views of exotic animals on the savannah. Take the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki's Planet Watch and head to Affection Section, a lovely little shaded petting zoo. Don't miss Festival of the Lion King or Finding Nemo-The Musical, two gorgeous shows which will entertain all of you. When your toddlers need to run off some energy with hands-on play, head to The Boneyard (Be prepared to stay for awhile. Kids LOVE it there!)

    For more tips on Traveling with Little Ones in WDW, take a look at this really helpful post entitled In-Depth Planning Tools. Lots of helpful information for you, tucked neatly into one location.

    Of course, you can always send us more questions, too! We've "been there, done that" and really enjoy helping Guests avoid our first-timer mistakes while finding those magical moments they might have otherwise missed. Enjoy!
