    We are planning a trip to WDW in September, what would be the top three theme parks to take my 17 month old son?


    Magic Kingdom!  That's definitely the best park for your little one, with the most rides and attractions that will be accessible to him.  Fantasyland will all be great for him, and also favorites like Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear, and the Indy Speedway.

    Next I would choose Animal Kingdom, where you could enjoy Kilimanjaro Safari, It's Tough to be a Bug, The Boneyard playground, and my personal favorite, the Jammin' Jungle Parade. 

    Third I would choose Epcot.  This is hard for me to say because I really love Hollywood Studios, and the Playhouse Disney show there is absolutely perfect for your sons' age.  However, beyond that show there probably isn't much there that he would truly love doing.  At Epcot he can enjoy the Nemo and Friends ride, Turtle Talk with Crush, Spaceship Earth, and boats in The Land, Mexico, and Norway.

    When it's all said and done though, for a 17-month-old, the Magic Kingdom will far and away be his favorite spot. 

    Hope that helps!
