    I'm traveling with a 5 year old any thoughts of what to do or how to have the best and most memorable time?

    Hello, Matthew!

    Your little Mouseketeer is sure to have a magical time at the Walt Disney World Resort! Mid-day breaks at your hotel and lots of yummy snacks are key to having an enjoyable experience on any family vacation. I'm happy to share my daughter's favorite preschool-friendly attractions to help you plan your visit:

    Your adventure begins at Magic Kingdom Park, where your Mouseketeer can soar high on Dumbo the Flying Elephant, blast off to "infinity...and beyond!" on Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, and even step into a real-life storytelling of how Belle and the Beast fell in love at Enchanted Tales With Belle. Most rides and attractions at Magic Kingdom Park are appropriate for children of all ages, though there are a few height requirements to consider.

    Continue your adventure at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, where you can take a walk on the wild side on exotic animal exploration trails. Your young adventurer can participate in the free Wilderness Explorers activity to learn about animals, habitats, conservation and more. Then join Simba, Timon, Pumba and other wild friends for a special sing-along -- complete with fire juggler, aerial bird ballet, stilt walkers and more! -- at Festival of the Lion King.

    Dive under the sea at Epcot to explore The Seas With Nemo & Friends, and then view real sharks, dolphins, rays and more at the nearby Sea Base attraction. After you have FIN-ished, skip over to explore the sensory labs at Journey Into Imagination With Figment. This fun (and unexpected) attraction also has an interactive play area. Make sure to have your autograph book ready for any special Disney Characters you may encounter as you stroll from country to country on your global adventure around Epcot's World Showcase!

    I hope you have a magical Walt Disney World vacation, Matthew!
