    May 2013 will be our first time at WDW with our children ages 1 and 3 years old. Should we stay at Caribbean or Corondao? Thanks! Also, which parks and what are the must see attractions for their ages? Thanks so much!

    Hi Kelly,

    Thank you for your great question! As I noticed this is your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort (awesome!) and you do have very small children, may I suggest Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter or Riverside Resort? Although your two choices are very beautiful Resort Hotels, you may find the enormity of each to consume much of your touring time. 

    The suggestion I mentioned falls into the same Moderate category of your other two choices, and families with small children find Disney's Port Orleans to be quite convenient and abundant in amenities.

    If you found the two in question to be your favorite choices, I'd suggest Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort for their awesome Pirate themed rooms!

    Without knowing how many days you're visiting, I'd suggest spending ample time at Magic Kingdom. 

    With the ages of your children I wouldn't miss:

    The Seas with Nemo & Friends
    Turtle Talk with Crush

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    Toy Story Midway Mania!
    Disney Junior - Live on Stage!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    Festival of the Lion King
    Kilimanjaro Safaris
    Wildlife Express Train
    Conservation Station
    Affection Section
    Flights of Wonder
    Finding Nemo - The Musical

    Magic Kingdom: 
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    "it's a small world"
    Peter Pan's Flight
    Enchanted Tales with Belle
    Under the Sea- Journey of The Little Mermaid
    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    The Barnstormer
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin

    Wishing you a MAGICAL vacation, Kelly, and visit us again with further questions. I've traveled many times with the ages of your 'lil Mouseketeers!
