    Hello, Going to Disneyworld Jun 12-Jun 17. I'ts our first time and my son is 3, we have 5 days of passes (no park hopper) and would like to know what would be the best to do for my son age and the events and show in that week...Please help me! Tkanks!

    Hi Solangel:

    I'm a parent of two boys, ages 5 and 4, and I would love to share some of my family's must-dos for our Disney World vacations. Your family may have different tastes, but hopefully these recommendations will be a good start to planning your trip.

    Among many other things: at the Magic Kingdom, we always ride the Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Mickey's PhilharMagic, The Haunted Mansion, and It's a Small World. At Epcot, we take in Spaceship Earth, Living with the Land, Soarin', and tour the countries of World Showcase. Highlights of World Showcase are the Kidcot Fun Stops, which are craft stations where your children can draw and color while learning about different cultures as they interact with Cast Members from around the world. Our must-dos at Hollywood Studios include Toy Story Mania and Muppet Vision 3-D. At Animal Kingdom, our family always rides the Kilimanjaro Safari and visits Conservation Station.  Check out Disney's in-depth planning page for more information about first trips and traveling with little ones.

    Since it's a first visit, remember to check in at City Hall at the Magic Kingdom, or at guest relations at other parks, and pick up "first-visit" buttons. Many Cast Members will go out of their way to greet your family to make the visit more memorable.

    When you get to the parks, pick up a complimentary Times Guide. Along with providing information regarding show times, parades, and special events, the Times Guides generally include character greeting times and locations. If you want a sense of the events and shows, Disney World also provides a calendar online. Just search for "Magic Kingdom calendar," "Animal Kingdom calendar," "Epcot calendar," and "Hollywood Studios calendar."

    Enjoy your vacation.
