    Thanks again Joanne! Just read your bio and saw you worked at Epcot before! Beside Nemo rides, what attractions are more gear towards kids age 1&3? Wonder if we should skip Epcot since our kids are so young. Thanks& have a great weekend!

    Hi Jenny! I did work at Epcot and it was one of my best jobs ever. I worked at Le Cellier in the Canada Pavillion. I have to say I didn't bring my daughter to Epcot until she was almost six. This was more because she was all about the Magic Kingdom, and loved Playhouse Disney Hollywood Studios. She also loves animals, so the Animal Kingdom was on our list too! There is lots to do there for kids though, and she loved it then and still does:

    - The boat ride in Mexico features Donald Duck at his best!
    - ImageWorks in the Imagination pavilion is hands on fun for all ages. Be sure to do the Journey into Imagination with Figment too.
    - My daughter can spend hours at Innoventions, where kids learn through fun, hands on activities.
    - As you mentioned Jenny, if you go don't miss The Seas with Nemo and Friends. The aquariums are amazing, the boat ride is fun for all, but my favourite is Turtle Talk with Crush, where kids sit up close and get the chance to talk to Crush. It's so fun!

    There is also a craft for kids to do in each country in World Showcase. Hope this helps in your decision making Jenny!
