    What sort of things are there to do for a 2yr and 1yr old? I dont think we will have trouble finding rides and such for our 5yr old to do. I am just worried either my husband or I will be just standing around with the two little ones. Suggestions/ideas?

    Hey Rachel!

    The best thing about Walt Disney World is it is truly designed for kids of all ages.  You will be able to find so many things to do for the whole family!  

    There are only a handful of attractions which have height requirements and those are "thrill rides" or attractions too intense for most small children (including a five year old).  We last traveled with a one year old and a three year old together and we were able to experience so many different attractions together!

    Magic Kingdom Park houses the greatest number of attractions where the entire family will be able to ride.  Our favorite is it's a small world, but you'll also be able to take everyone on rides like Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, and Peter Pan's Flight-just to name a few!

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, don't miss The Boneyard.  It's a multi-level play area complete with slides, an archaeological "dig site" and plenty of room for all of the kids to run and have freedom for a little while.  We also love the Wildlife Express Train to Rafki's Planet Watch where you'll find the Affection Section petting zoo.  Kilimanjaro Safari Expedition is a fun way for kids to see animals of every kind.

    Epcot is home to kid-friendly favorites like The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Turtle Talk with Crush.

    Be sure to leave plenty of time for down time at your resort.  While the smaller ones are napping, your older child can go for a swim or just explore the resort.  We always make time each day to unwind and take a break from the stimulation of the parks. 

    I could go on and on about how awesome it is to take little ones to Walt Disney World.  Please let me know how else I can help you with planning your magical vacation.  We've "been there and done that' with little ones and have always had a blast.
