    Hello! I haven't visited the Magic Kingdom in years, but I'd like to. We have a son who is a year old and are concerned there isn't much for him to do . Any suggestions for us? thanks!

    Hi, Cassie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m glad to hear you’re planning a visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth” with your son. I’m a huge fan of introducing little ones to the magic of Disney early on, so I’ve been taking my own son to the theme parks since he was just a few months old. The Baby Care Centers are a great resource for families with babies and toddlers, and there’s one located in each of the theme parks. In addition to providing a convenient place to feed and change your baby, they offer a variety of amenities that make parents’ lives much easier. There are full-size changing tables, high chairs, a kitchen and a shop with baby food, formula, bottles, pacifiers, diapers, wipes, medicines and other essentials for purchase.

    There are lots of attractions your family can ride at Disneyland Park, including Dumbo the Flying Elephant and ”it’s a small world” in Fantasyland, Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Cruise in Adventureland, and Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage in Tomorrowland. In Disney California Adventure Park, check out Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train, Monsters Inc. Mike & Sully to the Rescue! and The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure, just to name a few. If it is labeled as being suitable for "any height” or there is not a minimum height requirement posted at an attraction, then your one-year-old may ride.  I think you’ll be surprised by how many attractions you can experience with your little one! My son enjoyed watching the parades and was enamored with shows like World of Color and Fantasmic! even when he was quite young, so we always had plenty to keep us busy in the parks.

    I hope this helps, Cassie, and that you have a wonderfully pixie-dusted vacation to the Disneyland Resort! Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
