    Hello! My wife and I are visiting Disney World with our 2 and 3 year-old boys (first time for them) at the end of June. What would you say are the absolute cannot miss events/places/activites/breakfasts that we should not miss out on? Thanks!!

    HI Eric! Wow hard question to answer in just a few words but will shout out some of my grandson's favorites over the past few years. Just returning from a trip with the six year old! Magic Kingdom of course is a must for all ages and especially the little ones. Fantasyland is opening up new attractions starting now so be sure and enjoy as much time as possible there. The thrill rides will not be good for the age of your sons but they might enjoy things such as Jungle Cruise, Aladdins Carpets, and People Mover. Animal Kingdom is another great park for kids and when there of course don't forget to do the Safari ride and Lion King show. Rafikis Planet Watch is a great place for hands on with some animals and character greetings. Epcot and Hollywood Studios both have fun attractions but are geared for the older ages. At the Studios you can stop in at Disney Junior and Voyage of the Little Mermaid. If they can sit long enough to watch Lights Motor Action this is a thrilling stunt show that also stars Lightning McQueen! Definitely get a character dining reservation. The most popular is Chef Mickey at the Contemporary but there are other good ones such as Tusker House and Garden Grill at the Land in Epcot. I would try for Chef Mickey or Tusker House first because the location is easy to do and enjoy a park the same day. Be sure and be in the Magic Kingdom for the Move It Shake It Celebrate It Street Party that takes place three times daily. The boys can get in the street and dance with the characters! Also try to make sure you can stay one night to view the Electric Light Parade followed by the Wishes Fireworks show. There is so much but this is a start of the highlights that you can enjoy during your vacation with two little ones!
