    I am coming to DisneyWorld in October and only staying for 2 days. Any suggestions on exploring Magic Kindom park with a newborn (3 months), a 4 & 6 year old? Thank you in advance.

    Hi, Melissa!  I would put together a game plan before you go, and make a list of things that are must do attractions for your family.  Tackle those first, or visit the Fast Pass kiosk if you have an attraction that uses them.  The Fast Pass allows you to put your park pass into a machine, and it gives you back a ticket that has you return during a one hour window to bypass the regular queue for the most popular attractions.  It can help you avoid some long lines and save time for something else.

    I'd head to the thing that is most important first.  For my girls, that would be Buzz Lightyear.  I can Fast Pass Buzz, and while I'm in the area, take them to see the Laugh Floor comedy show with the characters from Monsters, Inc., and do a spin on the People Mover.  When you do everything you want to do in a particular land, it's time to move to the next.  I follow them in order around the theme park so I don't miss anything.

    If you plan to do a sit down meal, you might want to book that now.  You can do that online at Walt Disney World Dining Reservations.  With little ones, you might want to also plan a couple of breaks during the day for a snack and a cold drink.

    I hope your visit is absolutely Magical!
