    Can you tell me what things we can do during this corona phase with young children in both Epcot and animal kingdom?

    Hi Maureen!

    Welcome to planDisney! In almost a month, Walt Disney World will be your playground for a magical vacation. Have you started a countdown calendar yet? My kids always loved tracking the days when they were little!

    To get ready, this planning guide for preschoolers and little ones will be an awesome resource that’s chock full of tips on how to navigate the parks and maximize your family fun! It even shares excellent suggestions for EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, two parks that are on your list. But for good measure, I'll add a few of my own: 


    -For Frozen fans, the can’t miss attractions include Frozen Ever After and a “Frozen Promenade” with Anna and Elsa popping in for a visit from Arendelle.

    -Kidcot Fun Stops are craft stations located at all 11 countries around World Showcase and make for a great adventure (not to mention give the kids souvenirs from their trip).

    -Everyone’s favorite clown fish, Nemo is front and center at The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Board a "clamobile" and take a dive under the sea (but watch out for Bruce the shark!) There's also an aquarium for the real life versions of sea creatures that is sure to fascinate little ones for a long time. 


    I love that you're also planning on visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom. This park and its residents cannot wait to welcome your little ones, and it will have all the various species that call it home on display. 

    -One of my absolute favorite attractions is Kilimanjaro Safaris with its diverse wildlife and lush landscape. I feel like I've been transported to Africa with every experience, and your kids should love playing "I Spy" and spotting all the animals.
    -"Feathered Friends in Flight" at the Caravan Stage gives Guests a bird’s eye view of the amazing birds at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. (Sorry for the bad pun!) It's awe-inspiring to see these trained birds strut their stuff and show off their training and superior flying skills. 

    On the Walt Disney World website, you can sort through all the various attractions geared towards preschoolers and little kids using these links for Disney's Animal Kingdom and EPCOT. As I always say, parents know their kids' interests best, so you'll be able to best make that judgment call on what will be most fascinating and entertaining to them.

    Say you do more research and find you have additional questions. Then make a beeline back to planDisney, and we will do our very best to help you plan the perfect Disney vacation. Wishing you a memory-making adventure at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
