    How many days should we alot for each park? Will be 2yr old, and there for 7 days total. I heard there is a place to have your childs hair cut for the 1st time that makes it special? DD will be celebrating her 2nd b-day while there suggestions?

    Hi Nathan,

    As a general guideline, I would allot two days for the Magic Kingdom, two days for Epcot, 1 day for Disney's Hollywood Studios and 1 day for the Animal Kingdom. On your seventh day, I would allow time to re-visit your favorite attractions. Let everyone choose at least one attraction in the chosen park to experience again!

    The Harmony Barber Shop is the place for a child's first hair cut! It's located in the Magic Kingdom and the barbers know just how to make it a special occasion with bubbles, a certificate, and more!

    Our son's first visit to WDW was at the age of 2. It was so magical to see the "world" through his eyes. Allow for spontaneous moments such as looking at Cinderella's Wishing Well (a perfect place for a birthday wish!) and visiting a favorite princess.

    Other birthday ideas include:

    Dining at Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh, a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table, and a birthday cake, of course!

    There's lots of celebration ideas for a birthday. Don't forget to pick up a complimentary birthday button from Guest Services!!

    Happy birthday wishes for a magical vacation!
