    Hi! We are taking our son, 17 months at the time, to Disney during a quick trip to Fla. I would love to know the best things to do within WDW with a child this age--any rides, attractions, etc. And also, I am curious on character breakfasts as well. Thanks

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Wendy!  My sons first visit was when he was about that age and watching him experience the magic was such a joy. 

    In my opinion, the Magic Kingdom will offer you the most experiences for your quick trip.  There are so many rides, shows, attractions, and restaurants available, but I will just give you a few of our absolute favorites.  We love to eat breakfast at The Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and a few of his friends, from the Hundred-Acre Wood.  If you are more in the mood to dine with Mickey and the gang, it is a short monorail ride over to Disney's Contemporary Resort for Chef Mickey's Fun Time Buffet. Once you are full and ready for the day, I suggest heading into Fantasyland where your little one will love floating through "it's a small world," soaring above Never Land in Peter Pan's Flight, or a taking a spin on the Prince Charming Regal Carousel.  When you are ready for lunch, I suggest Be Our Guest Restaurant, it is truly enchanting. Close by, you will be able to hop on a colorful, moving clam-shell and see Ariel in Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid.  Finally, no trip is complete, for my family, without a ride on Dumbo the Flying Elephant and a stop to visit with Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater.

    I hope you have a wonderful visit and please let me know if there is anything else I may assist you with. Helping guests is our passion.

    Magical Wishes,
