    So any suggestion and Ideas about things that need to do with my 2.5 year old daughter. I have not been to Disney sense I was a kid keep in mind I will be seven months pregnant.. Im looking forward to her reactions and the rides like Small world.

    Hi Amanda,

    You are taking your daughter to Walt Disney World at a magical age!  She may not remember the trip, but you will.  More importantly, you'll remember the look of wonder in her eyes.  You're going in with the right attitude.  You know that at 7 months pregnant, there are attractions that you shouldn't ride. I'm not sure which parks you are going to, but I have some suggestions for attractions that I think your little girl and you can enjoy together.

    • Magic Kingdom -  Fantasyland makes this park is perfect for the younger child. Some of my favorites are, it's a small world, Peter Pan's Magic Flight, and Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
    • Hollywood Studios - Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Disney Junior, Live On Stage are your best bets in this park.
    • Animal Kingdom - Take the train to Rafiki's Planet Watch where there is a gentle animal petting area.  Triceratops Spin is great, and so are the exploration trails.
    • Epcot - Living Seas with Nemo and Friends, Journey Into Imagination with Figment, and Gran Fiesta Tour.

    You may be considering a character dining experience.  They are great; however, some young children are frightened by seeing their favorite characters larger than life.  If your daughter has difficulties visiting the Easter Bunny, then you might want to shy away from character dining on this trip.  If she doesn't, then by all means, try to make reservations to a character meal.  I particularly like Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom.  It features Winnie the Pooh and friends.

    Also, take time to enjoy the little moments.  When my children were small, they loved playing in the interactive fountains or on the small playground areas outside some of the attractions.  Let them.  These are where those magic moments are made.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
