    We are excited to be bringing our one year old to a Disney park for the very first time. Which of your parks offers the best entertainment for a child this age? He is not big enough for rides...specifically looking for best park for shows, characters, etc

    Hi Brittney!
    I have awesome news! Your one year old can ride any attraction that doesn't have height requirements. Even though he's not big enough for certain attractions, he can certainly enjoy many attractions, entertainment and character greeting opportunities at every theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort. When our son first visited the WDW at the same age, the theme park we all enjoyed was Magic Kingdom. So I would consider either Magic Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios. Both theme park have great attractions and entertainment that will interest your baby. Click HERE for more information about traveling with little ones to the WDW. And, click HERE for a list of attractions that do have height requirements. For these attractions, you might like to take advantage of the Rider Swap option which allows guests to take turns waiting with little ones, then switch so everyone can enjoy the attraction.
    Hope this helps and have a magical vacation!
