    My boyfriend and I are looking into different places to take our (by then) 2 year old daughter for her birthday in July. Im just worried she will be to little to enjoy anything. And if we do decide to go what is the best place to stay and things to do.

    Hi Tory! I think that your little princess would absolutely love the Magic Kingdom. I took my son to Walt Disney World for the first time when he was 2-years-old, and although he doesn't remember it now as a 6-year-old, he thoroughly enjoyed himself on his first trip. He especially loved these attractions: it's a small world, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan's Flight, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and Mad Tea Party. I remember loving it's a small world as a little girl, and my son also loved all of the colors and lights at that age. 

    I bet that your daughter would also love a Character Dining Experience. There are different characters available depending on her interests. If she loves Mickey and friends, I suggest Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort. If she is more of a Disney Princess kinda girl, I suggest dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. My son's favorite Character Dining Experience was breakfast with Winnie the Pooh at The Crystal Palace. They have Mickey shaped waffles and a variety of cereals, along with a custom omelet bar- yum! 

    I always stay on property because there are several on-site benefits including easy transportation to and from your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, as well as complimentary Magic Bands, earlier access to FastPass+ selections, and Extra Magic Hours. I'm not sure what your budget is, so I will recommend a resort in each category. For the Value Resorts, Disney's Art of Animation is a great option. The standard room is themed to The Little Mermaid, which your daughter might like. For Moderate Resorts I suggest Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. They've got a beautiful princess themed "Royal Guest Room", that you have to see to believe. Finally, for the Deluxe Resorts, I suggest Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It is conveniently located on the monorail loop and is absolutely gorgeous. I hope this helps, and if you need anything else, please let us know. Have a magical day!
