    Love the panel! Our trip is in January for 9 days we we were just there in Sept, since we were just there I think 9 days is to much for the parks, Love some suggestions of things to do outside the parks hidden gems aroud Disney with a 3 yr old Thanks

    I don't know how hidden these gems are, Samantha, but here are some of the activities my family (including a two-year-old) enjoy doing during our down days at WDW:

    - rent a surrey bike at Disney's BoardWalk Inn
    - spend a day at Downtown Disney (my toddler likes the Lego store and riding the train there)
    - waste away an afternoon poolside
    - see the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness
    - enjoy a character meal in one of the resort restaurants (Chef Mickey's is a big hit with little ones)
    - have breakfast at Boma and then go see the animals at Animal Kingdom Lodge
    - rent a boat and cruise the waterways
    - enjoy a meal (and a delicious sundae) at Beaches and Cream
    - take a walk at the BoardWalk in the evening and enjoy the live performers
    - DisneyQuest offers some fun attractions, even for the little ones
    - reserve a horse drawn carriage ride at Port Orleans Riverside

    Hope that gives you a starting point; enjoy your trip!
