    Hi Becky, welcome to the Disney Parks Mom's Panel!

    At Magic Kingdom attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pans Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey's PhilharMagic and Dumbo the Flying Elephant are great family experiences.
    At Dumbo make sure to visit the big tent for a fun play area for kids.
    For thrill rides Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain are highly recommended.
    Enchanted Tales with Belle is a very unique attraction on the top of my list.
    The Pirates League is a really fun family experience with awesome makeups and accessories.

    Animal Kingdom features the very exciting Kilimanjaro Safaris, Pangani Forest Exploration Trails and the Maharajah Jungle Trek where guests are able to experience real animal habitats - guests also get to pet domesticated animals at the Affection Section.
    This park features great shows for the whole family.  Though it may be loud and scary, It's Tough to Be a Bug is one of my favorite shows.

    At Hollywood Studios pay an early visit to Toy Story Midway Mania! and to the Jedi Training sign up station.  My kids love to play at the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure.  The Magic of Disney Animation features the Animation Station where guest learn how to draw Disney characters.

    Epcot is a great family park with lots of dining and snack options, as well as unique stores from around the world.  There are lots of manual activities for the kids to try as you move along the park.

    Walking through the parks is a great family activity and arriving early at the parks is a great way to start the day.

    Fast Passes are always very convenient during any time of the year.

    Thank you for visiting and we hope to hear again from you.
