    Planning a trip with a 4 year old and 2 year old in January. Since they are so little I am thinking about just doing 2 days in the parks and not trying to overwhelm them. What parks would you suggest and do you think 2 days is an adequate time to spend?

    Hello Kristen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    There are so many exciting things to do with little ones at the Walt Disney World Resort – get ready to make magical memories!

    I suggest planning at least 3 days at the theme parks – visit Magic Kingdom Park twice because this is where you will find most attractions for your kids, and plan a visit to one of the other theme parks. I highly recommend Disney’s Hollywood Studios where you will find many Disney Junior related activities and the all new Toy Story Land!

    When my daughter was this young we usually arrived early at the parks, had lunch, and then went back to our Disney Resort hotel for an afternoon nap. We would then go back to the parks early in the evening and have fun until she started getting tired. That is why I also recommend bringing or renting a stroller, and in your case a double stroller would be excellent because your 4-year-old may also feel tired.

    Moms Panel tip: did you know that all four theme parks offer Baby Care Centers? These are great places to stop by with your family for a diaper change, for a break, and even for a snack.

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Pane, Kristen! Please hurry back real soon if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
