    Hi Reetu,

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    Seeing Walt Disney World through the eyes of a one year old is pretty magical, and there are plenty of fun things that you will be able to do!

    When visiting Epcot, I would be sure that you see The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Turtle Talk with Crush.  Spaceship Earth and Living with the Land are always a great attractions you can all do together and they offer a relaxing break from the walking and the heat.

    The Animal Kingdom offers even more for little ones!  I would be sure to take the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki's Planet Watch, you'll be able to get up close and personal with some animals.  The Kilimanjaro Safaris is one of the highlights of this park, and shouldn't be missed!  This park also hosts the Finding Nemo - The Musical which is an amazing show probably unlike anything you've seen before.  Another spectacular show that can be found here is the Festival of the Lion King which is always a family favorite.

    As for free stuff, for the most part you could expect to have a cast member or two greet you with some Mickey Mouse stickers - but I've never known of anything more being given away.  You could always stop by Club Cool in Epcot for some free samples of soft drinks from around the world.

    Have a great trip!
