    Hi! I am trying to plan my trip to WDW early May but am a little overwhelmed. I have been to Disney but this is my first time with kids - 2yo and 4yo. I can’t figure out pricing, the best way to plan or even what’s available for the youngest. Help!

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I have navigated Walt Disney World many a time with preschoolers, and while it requires a bit of planning and a LOT of flexibility, I guarantee you all will have a magical time!

    First stop - Disney’s excellent planning guide for Parents of Preschoolers. This is a one-stop-shop for all of the links to entertainment, food, and more that caters to your children’s age. I can attest that every single thing is an excellent recommendation!

    Have you thought about the 4-Park Magic Tickets? I think that is a great place to start. They allow you to experience all four Disney Theme Parks one at a time. When I visit with the littles, I try to pace ourselves so that no-one gets too tired out. These tickets are an excellent way to experience one park per day. Also remember, your two-year-old has free admission to the Parks!

    Our favorite Park for the littles is Magic Kingdom Park. Fantasyland is made for kids! Be sure to soar high above the sky on Dumbo, and thrill at a miniature foray into roller-coasters on The Barnstormer! Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade is a visual feast, and is sure to delight you all!

    When the kiddos need a break, make sure to stop by the Baby Care Centers. They are located in every one of the Theme Parks. They are a calm, quiet place to have a snack, pick up baby essentials, or change a diaper. Truly one of the best-kept secrets of the Parks!

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back. In the meantime, I wish you much pixie-dust with planning!
