    Hi! We will be going on our first Disney World vacation in Aug.26-31, staying at AOA, purchased a 4day ticket, and 7nights Disney Cruise after. I have a 2 year old son. Any ideas on the itinerary? I would appreciate all the suggestions that I can get :)

    Ahoy Rizza!
    Congratulations on your upcoming Disney vacation! I definitely recommend spending lots of time at Magic Kingdom (2 out of 4 days).  This park has lots for little ones like your son including the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade, the Main Street Electrical Parade and the Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It Parade!  As for attractions, be sure to to visit Fantasyland and New Fantasyland which includes Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel,  Peter Pan's Flight, It's a small world. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and much more!  If your son is anything like mine, include a ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad!  In Adventureland, be sure to stop by The Magic Carpets of Aladdin and the Jungle Cruise.  In Frontierland, your son will love the Country Bear Jamboree.  In Tomorrowland, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and Montsters, Inc. Laugh Floor Comedy Club are great choices.  When you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, a stop at the Honey, I Shunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure is fun, but be sure to have your tennis shoes on to keep up with your little guy!  I recommend visiting Toy Story Mania early or use a Fastpass to experience this interactive adventure! Others to add to your list are Voyage of The Little Mermaid, Disney Junior-Live on Stage, Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage, and Fantasmic!  If your son loves animals I suggest Animal Kingdom for your other day.  When you first enter, be on the lookout for the Oasis exhibits and the Discovery Island Trails.  The shows to experience are Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo-The Musical and Flights of Wonder.  Tricera Top Spin is a perfect attraction for a two-year old, and I'd plan on plenty of time playing in the Boneyard.  Last, but not least, my final two recommendations are to experience the Kilimanjaro Safaris and Rafiki's Planet Watch!
    I'm about out of room, Rizza!  Wishing you a pixie dusted vacation!
