    What is a MUST experience for a 3 year old's first trip to Disney World.

    Hi Diana!

    My son is 3 years old too!  I'll tell you some of his favorite things to do at Walt Disney World.

    Ride the monorail - this is one of his most favorite things to do, and it's before you even get into a park!  I swear he'd be good if we just rode it around a few times and then went home.

    Character meet & greets - He loves to see his favorite characters! He has a routine down now.  Hug, autograph, smile for pictures, hug, wave bye bye.  

    Character dining - This is a great way to see some of your favorites without standing in line.  Chef Mickey's is my son's favorite place because he loves the classics...Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie and Donald.  Love the Princesses?  There is no better place to see them than in Cinderella's Castle at Cinderella's Royal Table.  Advanced reservations are recommended for all table service restaurants.  Call (407) WDW-DiNE or book them online.  

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or Pirates League - Dress them up as their favorite princess or pirate!

    Harmony Barber Shop at the Magic Kingdom - Get their hair cut, styled or pixie-dusted at the barber shop on Main Street!  Advanced reservations required, call (407) WDW-DINE.

    No matter what you choose to do, I'm sure your toddler with have a MAGICAL first visit!  Be sure to stop by any Guest Services to pick up a 1st Visit pin for them to wear proudly.

    Have a magical day!
