    We are planning a trip to WDW the end of September. My four year old son has never been before, and we will also have a 5 month old. What should we plan as "Must Dos"? Are there any character dinners or anything?

    Hi Jessica!

    How exciting that you are planning a trip to the most magical place on earth!

    There are so many wonderful things to do and see at Walt Disney World!

    I strongly suggest that you make a list of each family members top five list and that way you can ensure to get the most important things done, because you definitely can't do everything.

    While your kids are still young, you can tailor their "must see" list based on their interests. Does your four year old son love Cars, Toy Story and Playhouse Disney? If so, don't miss visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios! He can meet Lightning McQueen and watch Lights, Motor, Action! Extreme Stunt Show where Lightning McQueen makes a special appearance. He will also love to watch Disney Junior Live On Stage where Jake and the Neverland Pirates makes a special appearance. 

    If he loves the characters, don't miss dinner at Chef Mickey's where he can eat with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Donald! There are also other character dining experiences, including Ohana with Lilo and Stich (breakfast only), Garden Grill at Epcot with Chip and Dale and Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom with Winnie the Pooh and friends. 

    You also will want to ensure you visit Magic Kingdom and let him ride Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo and Peter Pan's Flight. Exploring the new Fantasyland should be top on your list! Even though you have a son, you won't want to miss the new Enchanted Tales with Belle experience. Your little guy may even get to play a part in this experience.

    I hope you have a magical trip!
