    Going to WDW with a 3 yr old. What are some of the must do rides in each park? TIA

    Hi Melissa,
    I have such fond memories of traveling to WDW when our son was three. Everything was so magical to him at that age! And even though he still loves Disney, he now races to Space Mountain instead of Dumbo. So enjoy every precious moment!

    Speaking of Dumbo, in the Magic Kingdom you'll want to do the following:
    Dumbo, Peter Pan, It's A Small World, Carousel, Winnie the Pooh, Tomorrowland Speedway, Buzz Lightyear, Riverboat, Magic Carpets, and Jungle Cruise. Any parades and the evening fireworks!

    At Epcot, I would visit Journey Into Imagination, Turtle Talk with Crush and the rest of The Seas with Nemo and Friends, character greetings around World Showcase and IllumiNations fireworks.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has a great playground (Honey I Shrunk the Kids), Muppet Vision, character greetings including Phineas and Ferb, shows such as Beauty and the Beast or Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Toy Story, Disney Jr Live on Stage, and Pixar Pals parade.

    Animal Kingdom - all animal exhibits, petting zoo at Rafiki's Planet Watch, Kilimanjaro Safari, Boneyard, Triceratop Spin, Character Greeting Trails, Festival of the Lion King, and the afternoon parade!

    Don't forget to take a mid-day break. Enjoy!
