    Our next trip is on the calendar: Nov 2011 - hurray! With Ariels's Grotto & Pooh's Play area closed this year where else would you recommend I have my 3 yr old burn off some energy while husband & older kids are enjoying the "big kid" ri

    Hi Laura:

    My young kids love to spend time at Walt Disney World's playgrounds in-between rides, meals, and attractions.

    As for some alternate playground suggestions, in the Magic Kingdom, check out the toddler-sized playground located near the entrance to Splash Mountain. While small in size, we enjoy this playground because it’s near restrooms and is a quick walk to the nearby Magic Kingdom railroad. After some play time in the playground, our family hops on the train for a loop around the park. There are also play areas on Tom Sawyer Island.

    Remember to check out the playgrounds in the other parks, such as the 11,000-square-foot larger-than-life Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure play area at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and The Boneyard, a dinosaur-themed playground at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The Boneyard features a multi-level maze, climbing areas, tunnels, and a large shaded sandbox where kids can dig up fossils.

    Enjoy your vacation.
