    hi! I'll be travelling with my 3y old boy to Disney/ Orlando. What is the best places and things I should do with him, so he can enjoy the most this experince? tks a lot!

    Hi Flavia!!!

    I was fortunate enough to take my three year old to Walt Disney World multiple times, so I have lots of good experiences with what he enjoyed and didn't.

    There are definitely attractions and shows at each theme park that he would be able to enjoy.  The theme park that has the most for him to enjoy would be the Magic Kingdom.  I would say that a three year old could do almost 90% of the attractions and shows there.  My son also loved Epcot and riding Soarin', Test Track, and the Seas with Nemo and Friends.  Disney's Animal Kingdom offers a lot of cool animal exhibits and trails.  He will love Kilimanjaro Safaris and Rafiki's Planet Watch and the upclose animal encounters they offer.  I believe that Disney's Hollywood Studios has the least amount of things for a three year old to enjoy, but there is still a couple of things he might like.  My son loves Disney Junior - Live on Stage.  This has characters from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, the Little Einsteins, and Jake and the Never Land Pirates performing live on stage.  After the performance there are photo opportunities with some of the characters outside of the theater.  Also be sure to stay for the evening's performance of Fantasmic!  It is my favorite nighttime show on the whole resort!

    Overall, I believe that three years old is a wonderful time for a child to visit Walt Disney World!  He will have a blast and will provide you with some great memories!!!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Have a magical day!
