    Just found out we are heading to Disney for the first time in 3 weeks with our almost 5 year old daughter and almost 3 year old son. We will be there for 2 or 3 days. I am overwhelmed - can anyone tell me what we absolutely cannot miss?

    Hello Anne!

    WOO HOO!!!  How exciting to just find out you are coming to Walt Disney World!!!  You are going to have the most MAGICAL time!

    Since you only have two or three days AND because you have small children, the Disney Theme Parks I would HIGHLY recommend experiencing are Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios!!!!  I believe these two theme parks really cater to families with small children.

    Here is a list of the attractions and shows you definitely do NOT want to miss:

    Magic Kingdom:
    *  ALL of Fantasyland
    *  Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    *  The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    *  Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover (a.k.a. TTA)
    *  WISHES Nighttime Spectacular

    Hollywood Studios:
    * "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" Movie Set Adventure (HUGE fun!)
    *  Disney Junior - Live on Stage!
    *  Toy Story Mania!
    *  Voyage of the Little Mermaid
    *  Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage!

    When you arrive at each Disney Theme Park, make sure you pick up a Times Guide located throughout the park.  This will give you times and locations of all of the parades, shows, and Meet and Greets for some of your FAVORITE Disney characters!
