    I'm taking both my daughters (ages almost 8 and 4.5)to Disney World at Christmas. What are some of the best rides and activities that the 4.5 yr old can do?

    Hi Lindsay,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mickey and Minnie Mouse are so happy to hEAR that you are bringing your daughters to the Walt Disney World Resort during the Christmas season! Cinderella's castle simply shimmers. 

    At Magic Kingdom, my girls love Peter Pan's Flight, the Barnstormer, and the Magic Carpets of Aladdin. In Disney's Animal Kingdom, my girls run to Kilimanjaro Safaris, sing at The Festival of the Lion King show and we are looking forward to the new experiences in Pandora - The World of Avatar. At Epcot, we ride Living with the Land, the Seas with Nemo & Friends and Soarin'.  In Disney's Hollywood Studios, we head straight to Toy Story Mania! and Star Tours - the Adventures Continue.

    Since my girls love to princess and Jedi on any given day, we always review the information on Disney Princesses and Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. By morning, they have defeated Darth Vader and by night, they have stopped by to chat with Tiana and dined with Cinderella. 
    Lindsay, your younger daughter should be able to enjoy most of the attractions I mentioned but, for some of them, it will depend on her height. Just check the height requirements before you go!

    Be sure to make Dining Reservations for character meals as restaurants fill quickly during that time of year. I suggest Chef Mickey's!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
