    First time @ WDW. We have a 3 y/o (turning 3 on our first day at the park!) and a 7.5 month old. What parts of WDW will offer the most for a toddler and where is the place to stay? We will be spending 2 days and 3 nights. We will use a dbl stroller a lot.

    Hi Sarah!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    The Magic Kingdom is the theme park to visit with young children.  It is typically the favorite of young children with a lot of shows and rides that they can enjoy.  In fact, it is often the favorite of guests of all ages; it's my personal favorite park!  Within the Magic Kingdom, Fantasyland is definitely a "must do" with young children.

    However, children will also enjoy other areas of Walt Disney World, such as Disney's Animal Kingdom.  With 2 days in the parks, I suggest visiting the Magic Kingdom on the first day and then either the  Magic Kingdom again on the 2nd day or Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    If your budget allows, the place to stay is on the Magic Kingdom monorail line.  That will provide you easy access to the Magic Kingdom, making it very easy to return to your resort hotel for an afternoon nap or a break.  If you decide to visit Epcot on your second day instead, it also provides easy access to Epcot via a monorail transfer at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    I hope this helps!  Our answers are limited in length, but if you write back I will be happy to provide more information and tips!
