    I need help planning 5 days with a 4 yr. old boy as to what to see, do. Do you need to make reservations ahead for breakfast with mickey? What places would he enjoy?

    Hi, Carol!  There are things at every turn for a four year old boy to see!  Let's start with breakfast with Mickey.  If you are hoping to enjoy any table service dining experience, whether or not there are characters involved, I can't recommend strongly enough that you make an advanced dining reservation.  As of right now, you can make your reservations 90 days prior to your arrival, and some of the most popular meals - including Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort- can book quickly!

    Check out the Magic Kingdom, and rides like Buzz Lightyear and Pirates of the Caribbean.  My girls also love the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor.  Disney's Hollywood Studios has Toy Story Midway Mania, and a not to be missed Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular!  EPCOT offers Test Track - which my four year old is just now tall enough for, and she loves it!  But she also loves Ellen's Energy Adventure and Journey Into the Imagination.  Animal Kingdom has the awesome Kilimanjaro Safari Ride and Kali River Rapids, not to mention the spectacular Festival of the Lion King.

    I think you'll find something new at every turn that your four year old would enjoy.  Have a wonderful vacation!
