    What is there to do for a 5 year old almost 6

    Welcome to planDisney, Natalie!

    As a dad to two young Mouseketeers, I think I'm in a good position to answer your question. The Walt Disney World Resort is an amazing place for Guests of all ages. As a parent, I love experiencing the magic through the eyes of my children.

    Let's begin with attractions! Here's a list I've put together of kid-friendly attractions in each theme park:

    Magic Kingdom Park
    - "it's a small world."
    - "Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
    - Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    - Jungle Cruise
    - The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    - Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid
    - Mad Tea Party
    - Peter Pan's Flight
    - Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    - The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    - Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room
    - Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

    - Spaceship Earth
    - The Seas with Nemo & Friends 
    - Living with the Land 
    - Journey Into Imagination With Figment
    - Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros
    -  Frozen Ever After
    - Remy's Ratatouille Adventure

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    - Kilimanjaro Safaris
    - Na’vi River Journey
    - Festival of the Lion King
    - Feathered Friends in Flight!
    - Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond!

    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    - Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
    - Toy Story Mania!
    - Alien Swirling Saucers
    - Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy

    As you can see, there is more than enough to do attraction-wise. There is also the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom Park, or the nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment, and Harmonious. And, of course, there are various character meet and greets through the theme parks. Maybe you could begin by meeting Mickey Mouse!

    If it wasn't so close to your arrival date, I would suggest booking a character dining experience at Chef Mickey's, Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera, or The Crystal Palace. However, these places are most likely booked up by this point. 

    I always love taking my kids to the World of Disney store at Disney Springs. This is where they typically choose a toy to bring home from our trip. But they also just love exploring this huge store of Disney treasures.

    I hope that gives you some ideas, Natalie. Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Have a great trip.
