Preschooler on Carousel

    Meredith from VA Asked

    Planning a quick trip to WDW for my almost 2 year old for 3 days. Having a hard time deciding if we should go to Animal Kingdom and MK twice or MK, Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Is there enough at Epcot to keep her busy for a full day? No park hopper.

    Hi Meredith,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I have it on good authority that Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be delighted to greet your little one when she arrives!

    Even though my girls are older now, we still spend two days in Magic Kingdom on every trip. There is so much to see and do that we never do it all in one day. When they were younger, we took a break in the early afternoon to go back to the resort and take a nap. So I would suggest that you do two days at Magic Kingdom and one day at Disney's Animal Kingdom. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, there is a really cute play area called The Boneyard. Our girls still love it.

    If you have a Frozen fan on your hands, however, you definitely want to visit Epcot. She would adore having a royal tour of Arendelle on Frozen Ever After. Then she could visit with Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus. Of course, no visit would be complete without dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. On our last visit, we chatted with Belle, Ariel, Aurora and Cinderella while dining at breakfast!

    At Ecpot on our last visit, we also stopped and picked up a Duffy the Disney Bear activity - kids can color the bear and take it around to all of the Kidcot Fun Stops in Epcot. At each stop in World Showcase, cast members will stamp the bear and color that nation's flag on the back of Duffy. The entertainment and food in Epcot are also just delightful. Review the Epcot Attractions to see other experiences your little one might enjoy. Our girls still love Innoventions, Journey Into Imagination With Figment, Living with the Land, and Spaceship Earth. Turtle Talk with Crush is also a lot of fun for little ones!

    Meredith, sending pixie dust your way as you make your decision!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
    Donyell
