    I am looking to travel to disney world in Sept-Oct of this year. My children will be 14 Months and 2.5 Years. What is there for children of that age to do at Disney? What is the best way to plan our vacation? (Rooms, Tickets,Food?)

    Hi Kourtney:

    I'm a parent of two boys, ages 5 and 3, who have been traveling to Walt Disney World since they were infants. There are a number of activities for infants and toddlers at the Parks. Among many other things: at the Magic Kingdom, we always ride the Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Mickey's PhilharMagic, and it's a small world. At Epcot, we take in Spaceship Earth, Living with the Land, and tour the countries of World Showcase. Highlights of World Showcase are the Kidcot Fun Stops, which are craft stations where children can draw and color while learning about different cultures as they interact with Cast Members from around the world. Our must-dos at Hollywood Studios include Toy Story Mania and Muppet Vision 3-D. At Animal Kingdom, our family always rides the Kilimanjaro Safari and visits Conservation Station. As you enter the parks, pick up a Times Guide for parades and show schedules throughout the day.

    Also have a look at Disney's in-depth planning page for traveling to Walt Disney World with younger children.
    For vacation planning advice, the best place to start is Disney's own website.  For insights into Resorts, tickets, and food, check out Disney's in-depth planning page for planning your first visit. booking and reservations, and  the general FAQ page.

    My best advice is to keep planning ahead, but relax, follow your kids' pace, and enjoy.
