    What things must you do on your first trip to Disney for a 4 year old boy? We are going to 4 parks Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Casie! I am so happy you stopped by! 

    I have an almost 4-year-old, myself, and we have created some of our best memories at the Walt Disney World Resort. Visiting all 4-parks is a great way to experience a bit of all that Walt Disney World has to offer. 

    Casie, we usually spend two full days at the Magic Kingdom, because there is just so much to do! My little one is absolutely obsessed with Toy Story, so our first stop is always Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. From here, we make sure to drive the cars at Tomorrowland Speedway before heading over to the Mad Tea Party. My guy is also an adrenalin addict, so we always get a FastPass+ for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

    In Disney's Hollywood Studios, you must make sure that you stop by Toy Story Land. Here Slinky Dog Dash is my son's favorite, but he is really looking forward to the debut of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway. Fantasmic! is also an amazing nighttime spectacular that will keep your little guy on the edge of his seat. 

    In Disney's Animal Kingdom, my son's two favorite rides are Kilimanjaro Safaris and Kali River Rapids. Make sure that you catch the Festival of the Lion King. This show will have your little guy singing and dancing in the aisle, and is a great spot for you to rest. If your little one needs some time to run around and just be 4, head over to The Boneyard for some dinosaur-sized fun!

    While we haven't had the opportunity to ride it yet, my son is obsessed with cars, and really looking forward to riding Test Track on our next visit, now that he is finally tall enough. 

    When we visit Disney Springs, we always make sure to get a reservation at T-Rex Restaurant. Animatronic dinosaurs and sugar-filled drinks make this restaurant a favorite spot for my little guy. 

    Casie, whatever you do, I am sure you and your little one will have an absolute blast! 

    I hope that this helped, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical vacation. 

    We hope to see ya real soon!
