    My fiance and I are taking our 3 year old son to Disney for the first time from January 4th until January 7th 2012. We are getting the dining plan but dont know anything about the resturants in Disney? Also, what are the "must do's" ?

    Hi Chandra!

    What a wonderful way to begin the New Year!  We have a 3 year old son, and this is a wonderful age to take them.  They are just beginning to remember their favorite characters and form their own opinions - it is a fascinating time, and Walt Disney World is a magical place for them to explore!

    If I may, I'd like to offer you a list of the "must do's" that our son likes in each park:

    Magic Kingdom:  Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, it's a small world, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and the Walt Disney World Railroad.

    EPCOT:  Ellen's Energy Adventure, Gran Fiesta Tour, Journey Into Imagination, Innoventions, Maelstrom, Living with the Land, Spaceship Earth, and of course, Nemo and Friends & Turtle Talk with Crush.

    Animal Kingdom:  Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo,  Camp Minnie Mickey, It's Tough to be a Bug, Kilimanjaro Safaris, The Boneyard, and TricerTop Spin.

    Hollywood Studios:  Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, Disney Junior- Live on Stage!, Muppet Vision 3-D, The Great Movie Ride, Toy Story Mania!, and Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

    In each Park, be sure to pick up a Times Guide upon entry for a list of special shows, character meet & greets, parades, and entertainment throughout the day.  The parades are definitely a "MUST DO"!!!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
