    Visiting with family in May 2019 with family including my Granddaughter (aged 2 and a half); need a days itinerary for both Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom please.

    Greetings Alan!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like a trip full of magical memories is on the horizon. I have been taking my children to the Walt Disney World Resort since they were about five months. It is so special to view the Parks through the eyes of a little person. Their delight and belief in the Magic are unforgettable!

    Magic Kingdom Park is MADE for the littles! Start the day out at an early breakfast at The Crystal Palace with all the friends from Hundred-Acre Wood. After you have greeted them at breakfast, it will be no bother to romp in a honey pot on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Next, soar high above London on Peter Panʻs Flight before you float around the world on “itʻs a small world.” Put Disney Magic to the test at Be Our Guest for lunch and then head west to Frontierland and ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Since baby girl will be too small to ride, take advantage of Rider Switch. After a riotous ride, grab yer mateys and board Pirates of the Caribbean! Cool off with some Dole Whip at Aloha Isle (mobile order ahead!) and then settle in for everyone’s favorite aviary show at The Tiki Room.

    Arrive early at Animal Kingdom Park, and head straight to Kilimanjaro Safaris. With the fresh morning air, the animals are usually quite lively! Afterward, fly on the back of a banshee on Avatar Flight of Passage (grab a FastPass+ for this one, and use Rider Switch). Once done, take a family photo in the Valley of Mo’ara then grab lunch at Satu’li Canteen - it is delicious! While the bigs ride Expedition Everest, take the littles on their own expedition through Maharajah Jungle Trek, then everyone can cool off while watching The Festival of the Lion King. Wrap up the evening with a spectacular Rivers of Light Dining Package!

    chEARs to a great trip!
