    Hi all, Love reading the panel. We will be traveling to Disney in August with DD 7months and DS 2years. I was wondering if all the parks have a play type area like the bone-yard at Animal Kingdom o if that is the only one. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Amber! The Boneyard is certainly the biggest time killer play area in the parks. Our boys love it. It may have inspired my 6 year old in his paleontologist aspirations. Your 2 year old will enjoy running and jumping around the place. It'd also be a good place to situate your 7 month old in a Bjorn.

    There are lots of cool details to the Boneyard too. Check out Shawn Slater's blog, DisneyShawn, to learn more.

    In addition to the Boneyard at Animal Kingdom, there are other play areas at the other parks too - some outdoor and some indoor. Check it:

    Magic Kingdom
    New interactive queue at the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    The Laughing Place play area near Splash Mountain
    Tom Sawyer Island (for explorin')

    The Living Seas, especially the Nemo shark area
    Mission: Space training lab
    Spaceship Earth exit area
    Water play area to the right on the walkway from Futureworld into World Showcase

    Hollywood Studios
    Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure (can get crazy - stick close to your toddler)

    One thing you won't find on a park map is cast member interactions. Cast members are often armed with bubbles and balls and will engage families playfully as they go by. Our boys love a bubble chasing diversion.
