    I'm planning to go to WDW with my husband and my 3 year-old son. We are going to stay 4 days. My son is fun of Cars, Toy Story & the Lion King. Does anyone have any recommendation for us regarding the Parks, meals, etc?

    Greetings Paola! Congratulations on your Walt DIsney World vacation! Based on your son's interests, I would recommend visiting Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. Magic Kingdom Park has the most attractions geared for younger guests which includes Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, be sure to experience the very popular Toy Story Midway Mania!, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, and Fantasmic!, my favorite show at Walt DIsney World. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, guests can currently meet Woody and Buzz Lightyear at Pixar Place; whereas, Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater have a character greeting at Team McQueen Headquarters near Streets of America. Please know that character greetings are subject to change at any time. You may also consider a quick-service meal at Pizza Planet Arcade. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, don't miss Festival of the Lion King. There are currently no Character Dining Experiences with the characters your son is a big fan of; however, I would highly recommend booking one for your upcoming trip. My family has created so many magical memories at Character Dining Experiences. My family's favorites include Chef Mickey's featuring the "Fab 5" at Disney's Contemporary Resort and 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast at Disney's Polynesian Resort which features Lilo, Stitch, Mickey, and Pluto. My family also loves T-REX, A Prehistoric Adventure and Rainforest Café which both feature themed settings with life-size animatronic animals. Both of these table-service restaurants are located in Downtown Disney while Rainforest Café has a second location in Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. I am out of room for my answer, but please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Paola!
    Happy Planning,
