    Best place for a toddler?

    Hi Jan,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be so excited to greet your toddler at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    My top theme park suggestion for little ones is Magic Kingdom. They can ride like the wind with several attractions that are nicely suited for them. Check the Magic Kingdom Attractions List to see the rides that your little one might enjoy. Of course, you know your toddler best, but I would try Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan's Flight, Astro Orbiter, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Mad Tea Party. There are also a number of character and entertainment experiences at Magic Kingdom. Our girls have loved to visit Rapunzel and Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall. We break out our best dance moves at the Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party and enjoy the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade as well as the Happily Ever After fireworks. 

    Also, take advantage of some of the super fun character meals while visiting. At Magic Kingdom, our girls adore The Crystal Palace and Cinderella's Royal Table. We always make reservations for breakfast, lunch or dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant. With a toddler, I suggest breakfast or lunch - the meal is quick-service and you still get to enjoy Beast's enchanted castle. Close to Magic Kingdom, at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you might want to try Chef Mickey's. It is a great way to meet several popular characters while dining.

    Jan, given that toddlers can get exhausted, be sure to take advantage of the Baby Care Centers!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
