    We'd like to plan out our days at Disney in advance. Where do we find an online map of the Parks? Is there a chart we can use that shows suggestions for preschoolers? We'll have an almost 3 yr. old with us. Thanks! An excited grandmother!

    Howdy Nan!!

    You can find everything you need on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Go to Parks & Tickets, click on Theme Park and then scroll down and you will see a map you can click on and view.

    For suggested age-appropriate attractions, click on Things to Do. You will see links to Dining, Activities and More. If you click on Attractions (under activities), you can select Preschoolers under Age Interest. Once you make your selection, a very thorough list of suggestions will be presented!

    Some tips I can offer include:
    1. If you are planning to enjoy any table service restaurants, be sure to book your reservations as soon as possible. This will help you enjoy your favorite restaurants and make the best use of your time. Try to book your dining at a time you expect your grandchild will be awake, alert and ready to enjoy a meal.
    2. Have a small blanket or towel with you when you are out and about. Use it to cover the stroller when you are inside enjoying the various attractions. The warm Orlando sun beating down on the stroller can make it very hot but the towel or blanket will help keep the stroller cool for your little one.
    3. Nap time. I'm a huge proponent of nap time. Nap time will reenergize everyone. Try to take a break in the afternoon. When you are rested and ready to go, make your way back to a Theme Park and enjoy your evening.
    4. I love that you are planning your days at Walt Disney World!! That's phenomenal! After you make your plan, make some notes about your must do attractions, dining or entertainment and do all you can to experience those. Everything else will be delicious icing on a very yummy cake. Enjoy all of the magical moments as they happen whether planned or spontaneous!

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information. Have a magical day!!
