    We are going to Disney World the 3rd week In April. My daughter is turning three... any advice for things to do for her? Would a park day be too much? water park? bibbidy bobbity boutique... chef mickeys???

    Hi Kalin,

    Three is a wonderful age to visit Walt Disney World!  I don't think that a day in the theme parks would be too much for her.  However, if your daughter takes a regular nap I would recommend that you try to work that into your plans for the day.  If she naps well in her stroller, then just make sure you have it with you.  There are countless lovely places to sit in the shade with her while she has a rest.  If, however, you need to return to your hotel room for her to nap, that would work also.  You can simply return to the theme park to enjoy more attractions after she rests. 

    If you are headed to the Magic Kingdom for the day, take her to see It's a Small World, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (with a really fun, new interactive queue), Peter Pan's Flight, the Jungle Cruise, and the Country Bear Jamboree.  If she's a big fan of animals, I bet she would like the Kilimanjaro Safari in Disney's Animal Kingdom or digging in the huge, themed sand play area called The Boneyard.  At Epcot, you'll want to see Journey into Imagination and Turtle Talk with Crush.  Finally, check out Muppet Vision 3-D, Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area, and Voyage of the Little Mermaid in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    If you think your little girl wouldn't mind sitting still to have her hair done, then Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is wonderful fun for a little girl.  If sitting still is not one of her strong suits, then perhaps that experience would best be saved for her next visit to Walt Disney World when she is a bit older.

    Definitely take time to meet the characters at a character meal, like the ones at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort or the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom.  If you are staying at a Disney resort, it is worth spending an afternoon enjoying the lovely, kid-friendly pools at your hotel.

    Wishing you fun and pixie dust on your upcoming trip!
