    We are planning our first trip to Disney with our 3 kids this year (oldest will be 7 and youngest 1 1/2). What are the top 5 must-sees while we are there? What are our babysitting options? We are planning on staying in the park. Thanks!!

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Amy!

    A first trip to Disney World is always super exciting!  Here's are my 5 recommendation for your kids in each park:

    Magic Kingdom
    * Dumbo
    * "it's a small world"
    * Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    * Peter Pan's Flight
    * Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
        Also be sure to see Wishes fireworks spectacular

    * The Seas With Nemo & Friends
    * Turtle Talk with Crush
    * Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros
    * Innoventions East & West
    * Soarin (for those over 40")
        Check out IllumiNations in the evening    

    Hollywood Studios
    * Toy Story Mania
    * Lights, Motors Action! Extreme Stunt Show
    * Indian Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular
    * Voyage of the Little Mermaid
    * Disney Junior - Live on Stage
        Fantasmic! in the evening is awesome

    Animal Kingdom
    * Kilimanjaro Safaris
    * Festival of the Lion King
    * Finding Nemo - The Musical
    * Rafiki's Planet Watch
    * Flights of Wonder

    Be sure to catch the parades and character meet & greets in all of the parks. If your kids have any favorites, we're happy to give you tips on where to find them. Character dining is also a must do. Let me know if you need suggestions. Be sure to make your Advanced Dining Reservations as soon as your 180 day window prior to your trip opens up.

    Many of the resorts offer supervised activity centers for children ages 3 - 12.  In-room childcare is available for children ages 6 months to 12 years through an independent childcare provider Kids Nite Out

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
