    What would you suggest for fun around World Showcase with 2 and 3 year olds? I know all about the Kidcot Funstops, character greetings, and the train beside Germany. I'm looking for some unique suggestions that I know the Mom's panel experts can provide!

    Hi Darren,

    A preschooler can be kept very well entertained around the World Showcase.  You mentioned many of typical experiences.  The Funstops are great.  I find that sometimes a little one just needs to sit down and color.  Running from attraction to attraction can be a lot for them.  The simple act of coloring can help them unwind.

    My daughter is three and her favorite ride in the World Showcase is The Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros.  It is an adorable boat ride featuring Donald Duck.  It is located in the Mexico Pavilion.  I would steer clear of the Maelstrom Adventure in Norway.  It can be a little scary for small children.

    We usually spend most of our time greeting characters.  If you get there at the right time of day you can see many of the Disney Princesses.  The crowds tend to be very low compared with the Magic Kingdom.

    And you can't under estimate the power of the ducks.  Many times we stand around just watching and talking to ducks.  I know that I won't be able to do that with a pre-teen, so I just soak in my daughter's fascination with the local wild life.

    Have a magical trip
