    Where and what should we do for a 5 and 7 year old?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Christina!

    Thank you for stopping by with an excellent question! I am happy to hear that you are planning to give the gift of magic to two lucky Mouseketeers!

    I am not sure what their preferences are, but rest assured that the Walt Disney World Resort offers fantastic attractions for Guests of all ages! My oldest daughter is 10-years-old, and she has been enjoying all four theme parks since she was 4. We visit all theme parks because each park is unique and offers different attractions designed for families to enjoy together. Only a few attractions have height requirements that may impact the 5-year-old, but you are welcome to use Rider Switch service when the youngest cannot ride. 

    If they are Star Wars and Toy Story fans, you must visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios to check out Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land. If they like animals and exploring nature, be sure to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park to experience attractions like Kilimanjaro Safaris and visit Pandora – The World of Avatar. My daughter has always loved visiting EPCOT to check out the country pavilions around the World Showcase and enjoy attractions like Test Track, Soarin’ Around the World, and Spaceship Earth. Finally, no vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth is complete without a visit to iconic Magic Kingdom Park! There are several classic attractions at this park that you cannot miss, like Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, and more!  

    As the mother of two girls, I highly recommend staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel to be immersed in the magic during your stay and enjoy benefits like proximity to the theme parks and complimentary transportation. My favorite resorts for kids are Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Depending on the time of the year you are traveling, consider visiting the water parks, and plan to stop by Disney Springs to check out The LEGO Store, World of Disney, and great dining destinations like T-Rex and Rainforest Café.

    planDisney tip: You are welcome to book your Disney vacation online or contact Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936, and Cast Members will be glad to assist you!
