    I'm planning a trip to Disney (Orlando) between Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2013 with my daughter who will be 3 years old at the time of the trip. Can you offer any advice of do's and don'ts for places to stay, things to see, what to bring, etc. Thanks.

    Hope you are having a wonderful day Kevin!

    What a magical time to be taking a Walt Disney World vacation with your daughter! I've taken both of my kids to Walt Disney World when they were three. I think it's the perfect age to take them!

    When you ask a bunch of people about where to go and what to do, you are bound to get a wide variety of answers! I myself would try to stay in the new Disney's Art of Animation Resort. My son has been hounding me this fall to take him there! It's brand new and your daughter will love all of the theming! 

    As far as things to see. You cannot miss out on being one of the first to see the New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom! I'm sure she would love for Belle to bring a story book to life right before her eyes! You will also get to experience Walt Disney World in full Holiday glory! Check out the Disney calendar to see if there are any night which you can attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

    The main thing to bring is your enthusiasm and some warm clothes. While it is Orlando, it does get a little chilly at times and you may need to bundle up! 

    These are just some suggestions, We have almost a year to go, lets have some fun planning this trip! All of us on the Moms Panel will be very happy to guide you through it!  Take care and have a magical day!
