    Hi, we are going to Orlando Disney for the first time in November. We will not be staying in Disney resort. We have 3 days and a 2yr old so was wondering which parks are a must to see as we won't be able to cover everything in 3 days. Thanks.

    Hi Neha,

    I remember when my daughter was a toddler at Walt Disney World. This is such as joyful time to watch your little ones run around and explore the theme parks! I believe that there is something for little ones at every Walt Disney World theme park. Which theme parks you choose to visit will depend on your interest and your little one's interests. The website that I linked will start to give you some ideas on what he might enjoy at each theme park.

    I recommend that all visitors to Walt Disney World head to Magic Kingdom. This is the iconic theme park, where the magic all began in Florida. Many toddlers especially enjoy Fantasyland, which includes such classic attractions as Dumbo the Flying Elephant, it's a small world, and Peter Pan's Flight. I remember my daughter's eyes sparkling with wonder on these!

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, my daughter loved to take the Wildlife Express Train out to Rafiki's Planet Watch where she could pet goats at Affection Section. She also would gaze in amazement at all of the exotic animals along Kilimanjaro Safaris. I would choose this theme park if your little one loves animals. If your little one loves Disney Junior Channel, then heading to Disney's Hollywood Studios makes sense. There you can meet these characters, see them in a stage show, and dine with them! Finally, Epcot is a fun place for all ages to explore. As a toddler, my daughter enjoyed the fun and colorful Journey into Imagination with Figment. The Seas with Nemo & Friends is also an amazing pavilion for little ones to explore and see so much marine life.

    If you have some time, take a look at the Walt Disney World planning video. This will help you to see the theme parks and make a decision about which is best for you to visit.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Neha!
