    Hello, My husband and I will be taking our then 18 month old daugher to WDW at the end of March. This will be our first time at Disney and we were wondering what the best parks and attractions would be to best suited for our daughters age group. Thanks!

    Hi Amy!

    Welcome to the Moms Panel and congratulations on your upcoming first visit! My wife and I have taken our four children to Walt Disney World as infants, toddlers and preschoolers. They've been able to enjoy the parks at various stages of their lives, and we've had wonderful experiences each time.

    Magic Kingdom Park is my favorite park to visit with little ones. I would suggest spending an entire day, or even two, visiting it. With the recent expansion of New Fantasyland, the Magic Kingdom has more to offer than ever before. Some of my favorite Fantasyland attractions to enjoy with my children are the classics like Peter Pan's Flight and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

    Look for Mickey and Minnie in a whimsical hot-air balloon float in the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. The parade happens daily at 3:00 p.m. and is a favorite among Guests of all ages. As you stroll down Main Street, U.S.A., be sure to take time to meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater. My kids were thrilled to get a hug from Mickey during our recent family visit in December.
    For more advice, visit the Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones page on Here you can discover tips and special offers designed for families with little ones. There is also a "Preschool Parent's Guide to Walt Disney World Resort" that you can download.

    Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions while planning your visit to Walt Disney World. I enjoy helping families plan their magical vacations with little ones.

    Have a magical day!
