    Hello Darciem thank you for sharing your experiences with your ds girl. We have 4th-year old twins, one with ds (girl)and boy with no ds. We are taking them 1st time to Disney on march 2012.. can you recommend best rides/parks I can take Sofia (my ds girl)

    Hi Cristina!  I'm so glad that my shared experiences as a mom of a little girl with Down syndrome have been helpful in your planning.  As for your question, let me assure you that your daughter with Down syndrome is almost guaranteed to have a magical time.  At four, she'll likely be most fond of Magic Kingdom, with its familiar fairytale characters and storybook settings.  That's not to say she won't also enjoy the other parks.  At Hollywood Studios, Disney Junior - Live on Stage! will be a must see.  At Epcot, your daughter will probably love walking through The Seas pavilion, where she can experience the mystery of sea life up close.  Assuming she's mobile, your daughter will probably appreciate the ability to run around in The Boneyard at Animal Kingdom.  As you can see, each park offers something unique for children of all ages and all abilities.  I bet your daughter will love Walt Disney World every bit as much as my daughter does.  Have a great time!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
