    Hi. Me, my husband and 4 year old son are visiting December 10-14. I know Magic Kingdom is the first stop. But I'm feeling overwhelmed with the pass+ bands. What attractions do you highly recommend for his age? Thanks so much!

    Hi Stephanie! Please don't feel overwhelmed, we're always here to lend a helping hand. I feel that I can help you out with your dilemma. I have two rowdy young pirates who are 3 and 4 years-old and they have visited the Disney Parks many times. I'm happy to share with you some of their favorite attractions and experiences at Magic Kingdom.

    My young son is a thrill seeker, while my older one is a little more cautious but they both LOVE the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It offers just enough thrills for them both to feel like they have conquered a "big kid ride."   If your son is adventurous and meets the 38 inch height requirement I highly recommend using a FastPass+ selection for this attraction, as it is brand new and very popular. Another favorite is Pirates of the Caribbean. Each time we ride my boys notice something different in the scenes you pass by in your boat.   I don't know if they ask to ride it so often because they love it so much, or they know that when you exit you pass through a fabulous pirate themed gift shop that they love to explore. Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin is a favorite for my whole family. We all love to see who can get the highest score while trying to defeat Evil Emperor Zurg. This would be a great way for your whole group to have a little family competition.  

    Stephanie, I would love to give you suggestions for other theme parks but I'm running out of room. Please ask me any other questions you may have about traveling with your little prince to Walt Disney World.
