    Best parks when you're bringing along a 1.5 year old? Is there any play area where he can run around?

    Hi, there!

     Dena, visiting the Walt Disney World Resort is always magical, but especially so with a little one in tow. There are lots of family-friendly attractions, shows, and Character experiences to enjoy together! Little ones certainly need some space to run around, no matter where they are. The theme parks offer perfect spots for toddlers to burn off some pixie-dusted energy!

     A day at Magic Kingdom Park is a must. Fantasyland is especially fun for little ones! Peter Pan's Flight and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh have interactive queues, making the wait to ride much easier to bear. My favorite play space for little ones is the queue area at Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Your little guy can climb, slide, and play to his heart's content! If it's warm during your visit, stop by Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak, a splastastic water play area. 

     The Boneyard is the best spot at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park for little ones to run around. This playground is huge and features lots of interactive elements, like giant dinosaur footprints that kiddos can stomp on to hear a big surprise! My toddlers have always loved this theme park because of the great entertainment offerings and all the animal encounters. 

     At Epcot, head to The Seas with Nemo & Friends. While your toddler can't run around, he can explore The Seas aquarium on foot. I'll never forget when my 1-year old had a friendly interaction through the glass with a scuba diver. It was precious!

     I hope this was helpful, Dena. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
