    We are traveling with a 2 and 3 year old in the first week of March. Can you give some advice as to what area of the park to start with or is it easier just to go in order? P.S. Is it true that characters are not allowed to talk?

    You will want to enter the Magic Kingdom and head directly to Fantasyland. Make sure you arrive early (prior to park opening) in order to enjoy the low crowds in the morning. Walk directly toward and through the Castle to enter Fantasyland. The is a magical entrance to a morning of memorable moments.

    Your first stop will be Dumbo. If your kids want to fly on this precious elephant, then experience this attraction first. After enjoying all the attractions in Fantasyland that are on your Must See agenda, then you will head to Toontown. Another good time for Toontown is later in the evening. Note that Toontown generally opens later than the rest of the park.

    It is true that some characters do not talk. Mickey has instructed some of his friends to keep quiet. You will find that the "face" characters such as Cinderella and Snow White are allowed to converse with the guests. Winnie the Pooh, Mickey and other "furry" friends will share hugs, photos and autographs but may not talk to the guests visiting them.

    I've heard parents come up with very creative reasons as to why the "head" characters do not speak. I believe Mickey has asked them to save their voices for all the shows and parades.

    Have a wonderful vacation.
