    Eve from QC Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We will be at Disney with our 3 years old daughter. What are your recommendation's? What it the perfect planning if we are there for 2 days? What rides should we do with her? What park should we visit? Other tips?

    Hi Eve! I have young children as well and there is nothing like seeing your little one's eyes light up when they get a first glimpse of Cinderella Castle or meet a favorite character!

    There is something for all ages at each of the four theme parks located at Walt Disney World Resort, but my personal preference when taking a two-day trip with a preschooler is to visit Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    At Magic Kingdom Park, there are a lot of rides and shows that do not have a height restriction. For my own little princess, our favorite rides include: Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. Once you have your admission tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to make three FastPass+ reservations, 30 days in advance if not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, and 60 days if staying at one. Peter Pan's Flight and Enchanted Tales with Belle are two that I highly recommend FastPass+ for. A dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant is an enchanting experience as you dine in Beast's castle. Finish the night watching Happily Ever After fireworks show and make sure to catch the joy on your daughter's face, as well! 

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom, you'll want to check out Kilimanjaro Safaris, the new Pandora - The World of Avatar with Na'vi River Journey, Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical. Na'vi River Journey and Festival of the Lion King are my top two picks for FastPass+ here. My family enjoys a meal at Tusker House Restaurant where you get to meet Donald Duck and friends! Be sure to try and snag dining reservations 180 days in advance.  They are very popular!
