    We are bringing my 3 year old daughter and my 4 year old niece to Disney World. We are staying at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort October 30th - November 3rd. Looking for suggestions. They like animals and all disney character, movies and live shows.

    So much to do....The Coronado Springs is a gorgeous Resort.  The theme is a nice balance of Mexico and the American Southwest.  The Dig Site playground has a huge sandbox.  This was fantastic as my boys love to dig in the sand, and are wanna be archeologists.  The playground is part of the Dig Site play area, there are Mayan carvings awaiting to be excavated.  I would also inquire when you check in for the childrens activities, some resorts have a movie night, others might have games by the pool.  This changes season to season, so what was there 2 years ago for us, may not be there now.  My niece loved going to visit Fort Wilderness and visiting the Pony Farm.  Its really close to Pioneer Hall.  The best part there is no cost to visiting the farm.  If the little ones want to ride the pony there is a small fee.  It I am sure has changed since we were there last.  Finding Nemo--The Musical is also an awesome show located in the Animal Kingdom along with The Festival of the Lion King.  The Festival of the Lion King is more interactive with the audience.  You might find yourself acting as a leader of the elephants.  If you want to take the Kilimanjaro Safari Ride, its fabulous. There are so many fabulous things to see and do. Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom will be a must for the girls.  The parades, and shows like High School Musical 3 at Hollywood Studios.  I would see about eating lunch at Hollywood & Vine for the Disney's Play 'N Dine featuring characters like JoJo and Goliath, or Leo from Little Einsteins.  I could go on forever.  This should get you started. Hope you have a fabulous trip!!!
