    We are planning to visit Disney world but not getting much idea on which park will be the most appropriate one as we have a 3 year old boy, so please suggest us where and what can we do here?

    Hi Sindhu!

    Oh, I remember when I brought my son and daughter to Walt Disney World when they were three years old. It was the most magical moment of my life. Seeing my kids experiencing the parks, meeting Mickey Mouse, riding the carousel, and splashing around in the water made my heart melt.

    Sindhu, I know your three-year-old son will love all of the Walt Disney World parks, as there are special features at each of them. However, if I could choose just one theme park to recommend, it would be Disney's Magic Kingdom.

    When you arrive, make sure to ask a Cast Member for a celebration button for your son's first visit. They will write his name on it and he will love hearing greetings all day long! After you enter the park, head straight to see Mickey at Town Square Theatre, which is on the right. Your son will love meeting Mickey and taking a photo with him!

    As you walk down Main Street, make sure to take a picture in front of Cinderella Castle. A PhotoPass photographer will be positioned here. I highly recommend purchasing Memory Maker for unlimited downloads of your PhotoPass photos.

    Turn right as you approach Cinderella Castle to enter Tomorrowland. Your son will love the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. Grab a Mickey Mouse pretzel from Lunching Pad and then head over to Fantasyland. Catch a ride on Peter Pan's Flight and Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

    Make an advanced dining reservation for Chef Mickey's, which is located at Disney's Contemporary Resort. You can take the monorail from Magic Kingdom to Disney's Contemporary Resort for your reservation. Your son will love dining with the Fab Five (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto)! 

    Another tip I have for you is to search for the attractions using "any height" so you can see the attractions your son can ride. You will also want to check out the Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones guide, which is chockfull of tips for visiting the parks with a toddler. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
