    We are planning a super last min trip to Orlando (in 3 weeks!) and want to go to Magic Kingdom & Animal Kingdom for 1 day each. I have a 3.5 year old daughter and 1 year old son. Any advice on must-sees and how to go abt planning on short notice?

    Dear Amanda,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Bringing toddlers and preschoolers to the Walt Disney World Resort is so much fun, because everything is so full of magic to them! The wondEARful part about the theme parks also is that even the littlest guests can go on many attractions!

    I definitely recommend a visit to Peter Pan's Flight, which will surely delight your little ones, and some of the other classics such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant!

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom, there is so much exploration to do! Start your day with a ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari trucks, where viewing lots of animals close up will thrill the kids and adults alike. When the kids need to burn off some steam, head over to The Boneyard, where they can play!

    This close to your arrival dates, I would first focus on getting the FastPass+ choices that you really want. You can also check availability on some last-minute Advanced Dining Reservations!

    Have a magical time!
