    Will be visiting Sunday 12 noon onwards and Monday morning to 3pm.with our 5year old son. I am thinking of visiting the Magic Kingdom one day. Any suggestions as to which attractions to choose and if we should also visit another park on the one day?

    Hi Koralia,

    Thanks for writing.  My boys, ages 7 and 9 helped me come up with this "must do" list for a five-year-old pirate visiting Magic Kingdom.  They recommend the following attractions for your son:

    • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
    • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    • The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    • Space Mountain (if he's over 44 inches, and "very brave" according to my 7 year-old!)
    • Peter Pan's Flight
    • Haunted Mansion
    • Jungle Cruise
    • Pirates of the Caribbean
    • Mad Tea Party
    • It's a Small World

    With basicall one full day (albeit split between two half days), I'd recommend sticking with Magic Kingdom.  The park has more than enough attractions to delight your son!  I hope some of my boys' suggestions help you plan the perfect visit!
