    Okay moms and dads I have been to Disney world twice before but in may 2016 will be the very first time I go with a child. My some will be three and half. Do y'all have any type of advice as what to see and do? What to pack special for him? Ect.

    Hi Brittany,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You and your son are going to have an incredible time when you visit Walt Disney World. My wife and I took our oldest for his first visit when he was two. There is a lot for little ones to experience, including many attractions. In fact, each of the four parks offers slow rides for guests of all ages to enjoy.

    My favorite park to visit with little ones is Magic Kingdom. During our family's most recent visit to the Magic Kingdom, we spent most of our time in Fantasyland and the recently expanded New Fantasyland. New Fantasyland's Storybook Circus area is home to Dumbo The Flying Elephant, which offers an air-conditioned circus-themed play area to keep children entertained before you take flight. Your son can also play at Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station in Storybook Circus. This is a great place to cool off on a warm day. There are similar play areas around the other parks, such as The Boneyard at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    The wonderful folks at Disney have made planning a Walt Disney World vacation with small children even easier. Now has a special area intended for families Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones. On this page you can discover tips and special offers designed for families like yours. There is even a Preschool Parent's Guide to Walt Disney World Resort that you can download. I highly recommend checking it out.

    Unfortunately I am out of room. Please be sure to send me any follow-up questions that you may have about planning your visit to Walt Disney World. I enjoy helping families plan their magical vacations with little ones.

    Have a magical day!
