    We are bringing our 3 year old in April. What are the CANNOT MISS Things that we need to do with him?

    There are so many wonderful things to see and do at Disney it's hard to pick only a few as 'musts'. However, I understand that it isn't always possible to fit in everything on one trip, so here are the highlights I'd hit with a child your son's age.

    Magic Kingdom - Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Tomorrowland Speedway, Peter Pan's Flight, it's a small world, Mickey's Philharmagic, Haunted Mansion (skip if he's fearful, but my young children have always loved it), Tom Sawyer Island, Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Animal Kingdom - Kilimanjaro Safaris, It's Tough to be a Bug, Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo the Musical, The Boneyard, Jammin' Jungle Parade

    Hollywood Studios - Disney Junior Live on Stage, Toy Story Midway Mania, Star Tours (if he meets the 40" height requirement), Jedi Training Academy, Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular (if he's seen the movies), Lights, Motors, Action!

    Epcot - The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Journey Into the Imagination with Figment, Innoventions, KidCot Fun Stops

    Hope that helps, and have a great vacation!
