    We are going to be in Orlando for my nephews birthday. We are going to only one day at the park. My nephew will be 5 and my daughter is only 15 mths. Any suggestions on what needs to be done with only one day? The have to things to do. Thanks so much!

    Hi Angelina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to hear you have chosen WDW for celebrating your nephew’s birthday. It’s going to be a very special celebration!
    Considering kids’ age range, I highly recommend you spend this special day at Magic Kingdom Park. You can make a reservation for a Character Dining Experience and order a birthday cake to be delivered to the restaurant of your preference. I suggest The Crystal Palace, a very good buffet restaurant, inspired by Victorian greenhouses of the last 1800’s. While you dine, Winnie the Pooh and some of his friends will visit you for photos and autographs.
    There are many attractions for small kids, and most of them are located in Fantasyland and Adventureland. It’s a Small World, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Jungle Cruise and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin are some attractions I would recommend for your family. As you are traveling with little kids, I suggest you make your FastPass+ selections in advance to avoid long lines for your favorite attractions.
    Parades are also a “must-do” for little ones. Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade happens daily at 3:00 p.m. and it is a great opportunity to see our favorite Disney Characters and Princesses.
    Finally, don’t forget to request a complimentary Happy Birthday button for your nephew!
    Hope this helps you planning. Please, come back again if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!
