    What would be the must do, must see activity in the Magic Kingdom for a three year old obsessed with cars, trucks and trains?

    Welcome BACK, Shelley!

    Our littles must be twins because my son's favorites aren't the world-class attractions for which Walt Disney World Resort is known. Instead, he loves the Monorail, the parking lot tram, and the Disney Resort Buses! We even have the die-cast metal toys of these vehicles, and they are played with every. single. day.

    Disney's Theme Parks aren't all Princesses and nods to movies; you'll find some great modes of transportation, too. Antique vehicles drive up and down Main Street U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park early in the morning. Guests over 32" can drive a real car at Tomorrowland Speedway. The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is the car of the future of yesteryear. And the Walt Disney World Railroad celebrates turn-of-the-century technology as well as Walt Disney's life-long love of trains.

    The Wildlife Express Train in Disney's Animal Kingdom takes guests to Conservation Station, a more hands-on part of the park. Also in this park is Kilimanjaro Safaris, where you explore the African savanna in a "bumpy car."

    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin isn't exactly a car, but you can control the spin of the space ship. If boats can be lumped in, be sure to check out Jungle Cruise, "it's a small world" and Living with the Land. For rides of flight visit Dumbo The Flying Elephant, Astro Orbiter, and Peter Pans Flight. And I may have fibbed once and said that The Barnstormer was just a really fast train.

    Bonus: You can visit Radiator Springs!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Shelley!
