    My son is turning 3 tomorrow and i know im last minute rummaging, but i would really like to take a trip to Disney.. not sure what part as there is much to do and many different parks to choose from, but that is why i need some help with it ALL!

    Hi Bianca! Welcome to planDisney!

    First, a great big "Happy Birthday!" to your little one! Each birthday feels like a milestone celebration when your kids are little because they grow up so quickly. I love the idea of celebrating your son with some time at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    The first thing you will want to do is check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar for all the dates you plan to visit. Looking at the calendar just now, it looks like there is select availability for this upcoming weekend (July 3-4, 2021), but then all four theme parks are available on the days after the busy holiday weekend. Take a look at the calendar at the link I included above to see what is available to make sure you can get the reservations you want before purchasing tickets. Once you know when you want to visit, buy your tickets right away and make your Disney Park Pass reservations for those dates. They go quickly, so don't delay!

    Magic Kingdom Park has the most for little ones to do and holds a lot of the iconic rides that come to mind when you think of the Walt Disney World Resort. It would be at the top of my list when planning for a 3-year-old! Next, my kids love Disney's Animal Kingdom because of the many animals around the theme park, the Character flotillas, and fun attractions. Honestly, any of the four theme parks have an assortment of things to appeal to all ages, so no matter which theme parks you choose, you will have a blast!

    Once your Walt Disney World theme park tickets and reservations are secure, then you can begin planning the rest of your vacation. Staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is extra special because of the immersive themes found at each resort. Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort are two perfect options for colorful resorts that your son will love, but also on the more budget-friendly side, especially when planning a last-minute vacation!

    I hope this helps get your planning started, Bianca! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
