    What are your suggestions for things that a toddler (18 month) would enjoy in each of the parks, especially if they are active?

    Welcome Marsena, thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    You will have a wonderful time with you little one at WDW. They are well prepared for receiving families with small kids.
    Magic Kingdom Park is my favorite one for his age range. You can start off your day with a special breakfast at The Crystal Palace, a buffet restaurant. While you dine you will meet Winnie the Pooh and some of his friends for photos, These are some attractions I consider great options for little kids: Dumbo the Flying Elephant, It’s a Small World, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, Jungle Cruise e The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Parades and fireworks are also “must-do” shows.
    At Disney’s Hollywood Studios I wouldn't’ miss Toy Story Midway Mania!, Muppet Vision 3D, Honey I shrunk the kids movie set adventure and Disney Junior – Live on Stage. This is a great place to “meet-and-greet” some of our favorite Disney Characters such as Buzz Lightyear and Disney Junior Pals. 
    At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you will be surrounded by nature and animals. Festival of the Lion King, Kilimanjaro Safaris, Finding Nemo - The musical, Flights of Wonder and TriceraTop Spin are “must-do” attractions.
    Epcot is a sensational Park, but can be very tiring for little ones. You will have a lot of walking during your day. I highly recommend you bring a stroller for your kid. Spaceship Earth, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Journey into Imagination with Figment are very good options for little kids.
    For you convenience, at all four Disney theme parks, you will find Baby Care Centers. I suggest you visit disneyworld.disney.go.com, and download the Preschool Parent's Guide to Walt Disney World Resort. You will find a lot of useful information there.
    Hope this information helps your planning.
    Have a magical day!
    Gina V.

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
