    What are some MUST DO activities/attractions with a 4.5 year old boy and 20 month old girl? What should we skip? Planning 1 day for each park and 2 days for magic kingdom, sufficient or should we allow another day or two?

    Hi Mandy,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. Very exciting that you get to go to WDW with your kids. I’ m going to give you some advice in which attractions you should use your FastPass+ thinking on pleasing your little boy. I don’t know his height, so you have to check if he can ride all of them, ok?  At Magic Kingdom uses FastPass+ for:  The Barnstorm, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean and Buzz Lightyears’s Space Ranger Spin. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, don’t miss Toy Story Midway Mania, Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage, Muppet Vision 3D and Voyage of the Little Mermaid.  At Disney’s Animal Kingdom you should see Finding Nemo – The Musical, Tricera Top Spin, Festival of the Lion King and It’s Tough to be a Bug. Epcot is very appealing for adults; if you want, skip this theme park while your kids are young, this is the time. Usually, I recommended two days for Magic Kingdom and two days for Disney’s Hollywood Studios too. Do not forget to see all the parades and the fireworks. You should study ahead on the web, where, in the theme parks, you can find the characters that your kids are wanting to meet. Don’t worry about your little girl, she is going to be entertained as well and use the Baby Care Centers for her. Schedule at least on Character Meal, a good option is Tusker House Resturant inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    Have a magical vacation!
