    Are there any rides that a one year old can ride? Would the park be less busy in February or March? Is there much difference in a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday as far as lines and number of people in the park?

    Hi Jeremy,

    Walt Disney designed his theme parks so that guests of all ages could join in the fun so, yes, there are rides that a one-year-old can enjoy.  It's a Small World, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Country Bear Jamboree, The Jungle Cruise, Kilimanjaro Safaris, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Voyage of the Little Mermaid are among the first toddler-appropriate attractions that come to mind, but there are many more.  And you won't want to miss some of the truly incredible stage shows and parades available throughout Walt Disney World.  For instance, I bet your little one would love Disney Junior - Live on Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Now, with regard to seasonal park attendance levels, February is almost always less crowded than March because many schools close for Spring Break during March.  You will see some subtle differences in crowds on the weekends, particularly if there are special events going on in the parks.  For instance, if it's June and Star Wars Weekend is taking place, Disney's Hollywood Studios is going to be extra busy on the weekends.  In March, Epcot might be a bit busier on the weekends during the International Flower and Garden Festival. Otherwise, I don't think you'll find dramatic differences in theme park attendance between weekdays and weekends.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your upcoming trip.  We'd be happy to help!
