    Hello, planning a last-minute trip Disney with our children, one of which is Autistic,all are under 5. We are planning on Magic Kingdom, maybe another park,depending on how they do. Any suggestions for must see attractions or another park we should see?

    Hi Brad!

    Of course, all of the parks are absolutely magical and have amazing attractions for all ages, but Magic Kingdom Park and Cinderella Castle are what people think of first when they think of the Walt Disney World Resort.  I think that is the perfect place to start!  Check out the full list of attractions at Magic Kingdom Park to see what you think your family will enjoy the most.  Personally, I can't miss Pirates of the Caribbean, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, or Haunted Mansion!  

    Since your kids are on the younger side and probably aren't ready for the thrills of Disney's Hollywood Studios or the cultural "foodie" experience of Epcot, I think that Disney's Animal Kingdom is the best choice for you!  With so many amazing adventures and ways to see exotic creatures from this world, and with the addition of Pandora - The World of Avatar, other worlds, you really can't go wrong!  Be sure to check out the full list of attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom to see what you might want to experience the most.  I highly suggest Na'vi River Journey, Affection Section, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and for the bigger kids, Avatar Flight of Passage!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
