    We are going to Disney 6/20/12 with our 2 year old Grandaughter. Where is the best place to watch the fireworks? Where are the best places to eat with a 2 year old? We are staying at the Swan.

    Hi, Michele!

    How exciting to be taking your little princess to Walt Disney World!  Make sure to take lots of pictures to capture every minute of the magic.

    My favorite place to watch fireworks at Magic Kingdom is near the Crystal Palace.  We even grab a spot on the porch most times. I like being away from the crowds of guests, the view is great, and you can even get a great view of Tinkerbell as she flies from Cinderella Castle.   Be sure to be in place 15 minutes prior to the fireworks to see the Castle Light Show.   If you want to be outside the park, head to the Polynesian where you can watch the fireworks from their beautiful beach. 

    You are going to love the Swan!  The pool area is huge and the rooms are very comfortable.  A great place for eating with your princess will be right across the way in the Dolphin Resort at the Picabu's.   They have a great breakfast served "cafeteria style" but really tasty!  Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.   You will also want to walk over to Beaches and Cream at the nearby Beach Club.  This soda shop has burgers, hot dogs, and delicious ice cream.  This is a really fun place to go.  No reservations taken. 

    Your princess will also enjoy character meals, such as Crystal Palace with Pooh and his pals, or Chef Mickey's where Mickey and his pals will be your hosts.  You will want to make Advance Dining Reservations for any table service meals. 

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation!  If you have any other questions, let us know!
