    I want to plan a trip for my family....son is 7 and daughter turns 4 June 2012...Is she to young for most rides? My husband has plenty of nights with choice hotels, is there one near the parks? How much is parking? This is VERY last minute! LOL

    Hi Kira! Congratulations on planning a trip to the most magical place on earth! My kids are similar ages, now nine and five, and I've been bringing my kids to Walt Disney World every year since my son was four. There is so much to do for both of your kids, don't worry! 

    I'm not sure of your daughter's height, which is how Disney bases the requirements for rides, but I'm sure that there is still plenty that she can ride. Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom has a plethora of rides for young children, including Dumbo, Cinderella's Carousel and It's a Small World. There are also so many attractions that the entire family can enjoy that don't have any restrictions on height, such as Mickey's Philharmagic (my personal favorite) and Carousel of Progress. Visit the Disney World Attractions site for a listing of the various attractions and height requirements. 

    Another great resource is the height requirement calculator at the website wdwinfo dot com. You can enter your daughter's height in their tool and it will provide you with a listing of the attractions she can ride.

    If you stay at a resort on Disney property, parking is free. If you stay at a hotel offsite and drive, parking is available for $14.00 a day. 

    I've never stayed at a Choice Hotel, so I can't personally recommend one, but you can visit choice hotels dot com to pull up a full listing of Choice Hotels near Walt Disney World.

    I hope that you have a magical stay at Walt Disney World!

    Magically,
    Stacy
