    Hi! My husband and I are visiting 9/5-9/10 with our 2 year old twins (girls). We visited in 2007 with our teens however, they are not traveling with us this time this trip is for the little ones. We need help planning for little ones. Any advise? 6 day PH.

    Hi Mitzi,

    This will certainly be a different trip for you and your husband, enjoying the magic thru your little princesses this time. The most important difference between this trip and the last one is to slow down. Obviously the twins may not be tall enough to enjoy some of the thrill rides that you teens could, but there is still so many attractions and shows that they will love. Just remember to do it at their pace. While the teens may be all about running for the Tower of Terror, the twins may want to  enjoy an ice cream, splash in the water or watch the balloons float in the sky.

    I would pencil in at least one day, and possibly two, at Magic Kingdom. This park offers the largest variety of attractions, shows and characters that your family can enjoy together. Fantasyland is a great place to start for some family fun and it would be a great idea to schedule a character meal at Cinderella's Royal Table or Crystal Palace if you can. Make sure to take the girls over to Hollywood Studios to enjoy the Little Mermaid and beauty and the Beast stage shows (simply beautiful) and don't forget to catch a show or two of Playhouse Disney.

    The girls might enjoy time at Animal Kingdom, especially at Rafiki's Planet Watch and the Pangani Exploration Trail. The Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo Musical can be a little loud at times, but are great shows featuring lots of color, music & action. 

    The activities, heat and sun will wear the girls out so an afternoon break at the resort pool or even a nap is a perfect way to keep from toddler meltdowns. Bring plenty of snacks and water to help with the munchies, and we have found small bottles of bubbles help pass the time while waiting in line. Don't forget to plan plenty of time for character interaction. There are great opportunities all over the parks for the girls to meet the Disney pals and have pictures made. No trip is complete without a book full of autographs.
