    Hello! Disney 1st timer here! Looking for a one-day itinerary with times included for shows/parade/any other suggestions appropriate for two toddlers, youngest is 35" tall for Magic Kingdom. Looking for the same thing for Animal Kingdom as well. TIA!

    Hi, Jo! I am more than happy to share some quick tips with you to make your days in the Kingdoms practically perfect in every way. There are so many attractions that I bet your little ones will enjoy, especially at Magic Kingdom Park. While you do have a little one in tow, everyone in your group can experience all of your must-do attractions with Rider Switch Service. When you want to ride one that your smaller toddler is not quite tall enough for, just see a Cast Member at the entrance to the attraction and they will set you up with this magic maker. Be sure to also hop on My Disney Experience and make your FastPass+ selections to add a bit of pixie dust to your day.

    I recommend you arrive at both parks well before the posted park opening time. The first few hours are the best for getting your must-do attractions done with shorter waits. At Magic Kingdom Park, head straight back to Fantasyland and let the magic begin! I usually walk counterclockwise around the park from that point and end our day in Tomorrowland. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, we start with Kilimanjaro Safaris and then let the day flow based on the timing and location of our FastPass+ selections.

    There are several shows and parades at each park that you do not want to miss! Their times can vary, so stop by the Entertainment page and change the date to the day you plan to visit for their current schedule. You can also pick up a Times Guide as you enter the park to check for any changes.

    Jo, if you have any questions about each day's specific itinerary or need some advice on how to best arrange your day, feel free to stop by and send several questions geared to each park. Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see ya real soon!
