    We have started planning our Disney Vacation for our family for April 2015. We have a lot of our plans made I want to be sure we are not missing out on anything! We are taking our son who is now 18 months and is a huge Mickey fan! Suggestions on must dos?

    Hi Ashley,

    I'm so excited to help you plan for your little guy's big trip! We took our oldest son for his first trip when he was 18-months old and it was a fantastic trip! Of course your family will want to meet Mickey and my favorite place to do that is at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom. Be sure to get a FastPass+ to see him, as the line gets very long, but he is definitely worth the wait or the FastPass+, as he has an extra special surprise when you meet him backstage as he gets ready for his big show! As you are heading down Main Street, U.S.A., be sure to stop in The Chapeau to get customized Mickey Ears for your family. These not only make great souvenir, but are fantastic for pictures in front of Cinderella Castle!

    Our little guy really enjoyed all of the shows at that age, but his favorite was Disney Junior - Live on Stage! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. There, kids can see all of their favorite Disney Junior characters, including Mickey himself, in an interactive show that is geared specifically for younger children. FastPass+ is available for this attraction as well. While you are visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can meet Mickey in his "Sorcerer's Apprentice" robe at The Magic of Disney Animation.

    Finally, remember, " was all started by a mouse" and all of the parks and hotels and Walt Disney World Resort are filled with Mickey. Your little guy will love finding surprise hidden Mickeys with you throughout the resort in everything from rice crispy bars and ice cream sandwiches, to hotel carpet patterns and woodwork.

    Have a fantastic trip and come back to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have!
