    Hello! I am looking at planning a trip to Disney World sometime this spring. I would love some help planning. My husband and I have a two year old.

    Welcome to planDisney, Sarah!

    Thanks for stopping by the Panel with your Walt Disney World question. I'm sure you're excited about planning a visit for your family this spring. I love helping families with little ones plan their magical vacations. My wife and I have taken our four children to Walt Disney World Resort at all ages, from as young as 6-months-old. Our oldest son was actually 2-years-old for his first Disney visit and that trip was extra special!

    My favorite park to visit with toddlers is Magic Kingdom. Our family spends a lot of time in Fantasyland, which has classic Disney attractions like "it's a small world" and Peter Pan's Flight. If you plan to visit Epcot, The Seas with Nemo & Friends is a great attraction to visit with a 2-year-old. After a fin-tastic adventure with Nemo, be sure to "just keep swimming" until you see the 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium, where you'll encounter clown fish, sharks, and more sea creatures. Each of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks offer attractions for Guests of all ages to enjoy, so there is plenty of fun in store for your family!

    If this is your child's first visit, pick up a complimentary "1st Visit" button at any Guest Relations location or the Front Desk of your Disney Resort Hotel. Our family likes to get celebration buttons each trip for any occasion that we're celebrating. It lets Cast Members and other Guests know you have something special to celebrate. When a Cast Member would acknowledge our children's first visits it made them feel so special. Those big, sweet smiles are magical memories I still treasure!

    A couple of tips I like to share with families are: 1) Bring water and snacks with you to the parks. Kids and adults can get "hangry" so keep a few snacks on hand to have when you're taking a break from the attractions. Florida is quite hot in the spring, so stay hydrated with plenty of water. 2) Pack 2-3 face coverings for the parks so that you can swap them out during the day and wash the ones you wear at night. Starting the day in a fresh mask will keep everyone smiling (underneath).

    Once you purchase your theme park tickets, you'll also need to make a theme park reservation through the Disney Park Pass system. Currently, all Guests ages 3 and older must have a park reservation to enter any of the parks, so you'll only need to make them for yourself and your husband. You may also want to read about the enhanced health and safety measures now in place at Walt Disney World Resort before your visit.

    Please let me know if I can help you with any other questions as you continue planning your family's visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. You can also call a Disney Expert at (407) WDISNEY or (407) 934-7639 for help booking your vacation.
     
    Have a magical day!
