Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Hi. Taking our two boys -age 2 and 3- for their very first time to WDW. I have been there but alone, say 5 years ago. Expect a completely different experience this time... Any suggestion, recommendation what to see would help. Are 2 days sufficient?

  • Daniela,

    With two days you will not want to try to hit all four parks, but instead concentrate your time at one, maybe two parks. To try to hit all four, especially with young children, would be exhausting and probably not very fun.

    What I would recommend you do is one of two plans;

    Plan 1: Focus on the Magic Kingdom
    This park has more attractions than the other parks. By a long shot. It is also very focused to younger children. So spend both days at the Magic Kingdom.You will not run out of things to do, and you will be surprised how much kids that age want to do the same ride over and over (get ready to sing "it's a small world" in your sleep!).

    Plan 2: Try two parks, at the most
    It is a vacation for the whole family, not just the kids. So the thought of a day at the Magic Kingdom and a day at another park is not a bad idea. While parks like Epcot may not have as much for small children as the Magic Kingdom, they are not totally devoid of attractions for that age. So spend 1 day at the Magic Kingdom, and 1 day at whatever park looks the most interesting to your traveling party adults. Of the three, I would pick Animal Kingdom last, only because it has little going on in the evening.

    BOTTOM LINE: If I were in your shoes, I would go with Plan A. I would reserve one character meal (Chef Mickey's), and maybe one other table service meal, tops (Whispering Canyon Cafe or 'Ohana). And only ones near the Magic Kingdom. You don't want to squander too much of your limited park time at a dinner table. Also remember to return to your resort in the afternoon for naps and pool time. Those boys will need the down time to stay energized. 

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a magical vacation!
