    Hi i have a nine yr old and five yr old daughters. A son that is one and i dont know what the best place or things to do so they can all enjoy. My five yr. old is visually impaired but i would also want my son to enjoy it. Thank You.

    Hi, Leslie!  I always found Walt Disney World was the best place to take a family with children of varying ages.  There is so much you can all do together, that none of my kids ever had a complaint about being bored while an older sister was doing something a younger one couldn't do.



    I think the Magic Kingdom is the best park for kids of this age - although all of them are wonderful for all ages.  The Magic Kingdom has all of the classic Walt Disney World attractions, from Its a Small World and the Jungle Cruise to Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain.  My family also loves to compete against each other at the interactive Buzz Lightyear attraction and Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios. 



    My husband is also visually impaired, and you'll find support in various means at Walt Disney World.  There is an audio guide that your son can use (my husband doesn't love this, as it requires him to wear headphones through the park, which he doesn't like), and there is also a large print park map.  The map is good to have, because it lets your son see what he wants to do!  I also recommend a guest assistance card.  You can get this at guest services.  Most people think it's only for guests with mobility issues, but the cast members have been wonderful in finding seating that allows my husband to see some of the shows and attractions much better than if we just went in with the regular queue.



    I hope you andyour family have an absolutely magical vacation!
