    We are planning on visiting Wdw in may 13 with our then 20 month old son what is there that he can do? I want him to have fun not just sit on the side lines I've been 4 times before just never really paid attention on attractions for younger kids. Thanks!

    Hi, Lillian!  There really is probably more he can do than things he can't, so I don't think you have to worry about him sitting on the side lines.  Anything that doesn't have a height restriction is probably pretty good for him, so you can enjoy things like Buzz Lightyear, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, even Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion.  Animal Kingdom is a great place for little ones to enjoy seeing the animals and riding the train.  There are also great shows to see in both the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom.

    EPCOT is more like a day in the park for little ones.  There aren't as many attractions to ride, but my girls always enjoyed the performers at EPCOT.  It was also a guaranteed nap with my girls.  There is often a breeze blowing over the water into World Showcase, and after letting a little one run around a bit, a ride in a stroller always put mine asleep!  It was a great time to enjoy lunch!

    Hollywood Studios has Disney Junior Live on stage, which is always fun for the little ones who are familiar with the shows.  We've also enjoyed Toy Story Midway Mania with little ones, and although it's loud for some kids, my kids also really loved the lights at Fantasmic!  

    I hope you have a great time with your son on your upcoming trip!
