    Hi Moms, we are coming down in January 2013 for our first trip and I wanted to know what are the must see things besides the rides like parades and such, I know there is much more then rides to see in DW? It will be my dh my 3 yo and myself. Thanks

    Hi Kathleen - there are certainly many different things to see at Walt Disney World, beyond attractions and rides.  I'd recommend that you take a look at the calendars for the dates you are visiting to see what parades and shows are going on.

    To see the calendars, do the following:
    Visit the Walt Disney World website
    Click on Parks and Tickets at the top
    Select each park individually
    Select "calendar" from the menu on the left
    Choose the month from the drop down on the top right
    Click into each specific day to get the calendar by day

    Keep in mind that days at Walt Disney World can be incredibly tiring for a little one, so it can be difficult to see the late parades and fireworks. 

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
