    We are planning a trip for the end of October. We'll be traveling with our 2 sons who will be 4 and 11 months. We are trying to figure out which parks (and rides) to go to and how much time to spend there. Would love some suggestions!

    Hi Beth,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel! I recently answered a question for another Guest with some tips for planning a trip with a toddler - click here.

    My top park recommendation is the Magic Kingdom. I'd plan on at least 2 days there. Here are some attractions I'd recommend:

    * Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    * Dumbo
    * "it's a small world"
    * Peter Pan's Flight
    * Mickey's PhilharMagic
    * Prince Charming Regal Carrousel 
    * Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    * Mad Tea Party
    * Tomorrowland Speedway (for your DS4)
    * WDW Railroad (sit near the back because the whistle is loud) 
    * Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    *Jungle Cruise
    * Country Bear Jamboree
    * Tomorrowland PeopleMover
    * Move it! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party
     * Don't forget the parades (the nighttime parade is different than the afternoon parade) & fireworks if they can stay up that late.

    My boys' 2nd favorite park is Disney's Hollywood Studios. Click here for some attraction suggestions. Depending on how long your boys are able to last in the park, you should be able to cover this in a day.

    My boys enjoy Future World at Epcot but haven't shown a lot of interest in the World Showcase yet. We usually spend a half day there doing Spaceship Earth, The Living Seas with Nemo & Friends, Turtle Talk with Crush, Soarin' (head here first - must be 40") and Test Track (must be 40"). We go back at night for IllumiNations.

    I'm out of room for this answer - come back for if you need suggestions for Animal Kingdom. Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
