    We would like to bring our son this October. He will be 22mos old and 34-36 inches tall. For planning purposes, can you tell me what specific attractions/park sections/rides will be most age-appropriate? Also, closest Disney hotels to those sections? Thx!

    Hi, Eileen!  I think for a child that age, the Magic Kingdom is probably the best of the theme parks.  It was a favorite of my kids when they were that age, and it really does offer a great variety of things to do.  You'll find things like the Jungle Cruise, Aladdin's Magic Carpets, It's a Small World, and a variety of other attractions.  Many kids also love the music and colors of the parades and the stage shows, and you may find you can even do things like Pirates of the Caribbean or the Haunted Mansion with a child this age!

    The most convenient resorts to the Magic Kingdom are on the monorail.  The Polynesian, Contemporary and Grand Floridian are all wonderful deluxe resorts with monorail access, although any resort you choose is really just a quick trip by boat or bus.

    If you have time, I'd also suggest visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios.  You'll find some great attractions, including ones related to Disney, Jr. programming, at Hollywood Studios, and my girls love the animals at Animal Kingdom.

    I hope your trip is magical in every way!
