    My husband and I would like to bring our 2 yr and 4 yr olds to Disney while in FL visiting family. Neither of us have ever been and don't have a clue where to start. I believe we would be there either 2 or 3 days. We need a plan best for a 2 & 4 yr old

    Helllo Bridgette!

    WOO HOO!  Your first trip to Walt Disney World is going to be MAGICAL!!!

    First, let's begin with where to stay!  Walt Disney World breaks down their Resorts into three categories: Value, Moderate, and Deluxe.  If you like staying in nice accommodations, then the Moderate or Deluxe resorts would be your best choice.  If you are on a budget, then I would recommend the Value Resorts.  Check out all of the Walt Disney World resorts yourself to see the incredible places to stay!

    Next, we need to discuss Disney Park Tickets.  For families with small children, I recommend only purchasing the basic Magic Your Way Tickets.  That way, you can focus on one Disney Park each day. 

    Now, let's talk about your schedule.  Here is my suggested schedule and recommended attractions for your family:

    Day #1:  Magic Kingdom:

    * ALL of Fantasyland

    * Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin

    * The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

    * Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover (a.k.a. TTA)

    Day #2:  Hollywood Studios:

    * "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" Movie Set Adventure (HUGE playground)

    *  Disney Junior - Live on Stage!

    *  Toy Story Mania!

    *  Voyage of the Little Mermaid

    *  Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage!

    Day #3:  Animal Kingdom

    * Affection Station (Cool petting zoo)

    * Kilimanjaro Safaris

    * The Boneyard (HUGE playground!)

    * TriceraTop Spin

    If you have other questions, please let me know!
