    My husband & I are coming to wdw from Nov. 4-13. What are the best thing for us to do with our 2 year old little guy & how many days should we set aside for each park?

    I generally recommend that people allow at least 6 days to experience the majority of rides and attractions in the four major theme parks, plus additional days if they would like to see Downtown Disney, the water parks, or explore some of the resorts. Two days each in Magic Kingdom and Epcot, and one day each in Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. My own family typically visits for 10-14 days at a time. Based on that, I think your 10 day vacation sounds perfect!

    As for what is best for your son, there's an easy answer - almost everything! Disney is so incredibly family friendly that almost everything is open to even the smallest of visitors, with very few height restrictions. A few of my own children's favorites at that age were Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, it's a small world, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, Jammin' Jungle Parade, Festival of the Lion King, The Boneyard playground, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Innoventions, Disney Junior Live on Stage, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, and Toy Story Mania.

    You're also visiting at a very sweet time - your child is both old enough to know what he's seeing and young enough to be dazzled by the magic of Disney. And of course under 3 is free, which is a pretty sweet deal for Mom and Dad, too!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
