    We are bringing our 13 month old in December and we are looking to go to 3 different parks over a week time period and was wondering which three parks would have the most "Family Friendly Rides"

    Hi, there!

     Janelle, I'm so happy to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season. It's the most magical time of the year!

     Two of my little ones visited the theme parks around their first birthdays, and I just loved seeing their sweet faces light up with joy and excitement. Lots of priceless memories were made during those trips! One of my favorite things about the Walt Disney World Resort is that those magical experiences are perfect for Guests of all ages. That said, it's my pleasure to share my recommendations for three theme parks that will be best for your 13-month old!

     Magic Kingdom Park is an absolute must-do for any family traveling with a little one in tow. Fantasyland, in particular, is packed with attractions your toddler will love. As toddlers, my kids have especially enjoyed Peter Pan's Flight, "it's a small world," Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, and Mickey's PhilharMagic. As a mom, I especially enjoy Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. These attractions feature interactive queue areas which keep my kiddos entertained while we wait to ride!

     Epcot also has lots of family-friendly attractions that are perfect for your 13-month old. SeaBase is so much fun to explore with little ones! This 5.7-million-gallon aquarium features two attractions; The Seas with Nemo & Friends and Turtle Talk With Crush. In World Showcase, sail on boat rides on Frozen Ever After and Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros. 

     While Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park has just a few attractions that your 13-month old can enjoy (Kilimanjaro Safaris, Na'vi River Journey, and TriceraTop Spin), there are lots of Animal Encounters that are not to be missed. This wild park also has incredible entertainment options. Be sure to catch a performance of Festival of The Lion King. It's my family's favorite show at the Walt Disney World Resort!

     I hope this was helpful, Janelle. Please let me know if you have any other questions about your Disney vacation!
