    What kind I do with a 2 year old? Where would you recommend we stay

    Welcome to planDisney, Jamaia!

    Jamaia, I have a 2-year-old little Mouseketeer myself, so I am happy to give you a few tips on planning a magical vacation! 

    The first thing that you will want to do is to pick the perfect place to stay. With a toddler, I recommend staying somewhere that gives you quick and easy access to the theme parks. So I would recommend that you stay at a resort on the Disney Skyliner route like Disney's Pop Century Resort or Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Your little one will absolutely flip for the decor at Disney's Art of Animation Resort when they see larger-than-life-sized statues of their favorite characters. 

    Staying at a resort on the Disney Skyliner route allows you to hop aboard your own whimsical gondola and head off to Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT. 

    If you are looking for a little more of a splurge, you can stay at a resort on the Resort Monorail line, allowing you to quickly head back and forth to the Magic Kingdom, which is sure to be your little one's favorite park. 

    I recommend Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, which is currently being refurbished to feature a Moana theme, which is my 2-year-old's current favorite movie. 

    Now, Jamaia, your 2-year-old can ride any attraction that they meet the height requirement for. If there is no height requirement, they are free to ride!

    My little one's favorites are Frozen Ever After in EPCOT, Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney's Animal Kingdom and, Alien Swirling Saucers in Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    In Magic Kingdom, there is so much for my little one that I couldn't narrow it down to just one ride. I would say that her favorite is tied between The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan's Flight

    Remember, while your 2-year-old will not need a theme park ticket, or a Disney Park Pass system reservation, they will need to adhere to the face-covering guidelines.

    Jamaia, one last tip. Disney Park Pass system reservations do sell out, and since you are visiting during the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort, I recommend that you make those reservations sooner rather than later. 

    I just know that you will have the best time! Please come back here if we can help you plan a magical vacation. 

    See you real soon!
