Mom And Kids Animal Kingdom

    I am planning on traveling to WDW with my 2 year old in August, 2008. I was wondering if there were things for her at Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, or should we plan to stay in mostly just the Magic Kingdom. Thanks!

    Hi Sherry - No doubt your daughter will enjoy all the fantasy that comes alive in the Magic Kingdom, but there is plenty to do in the other parks.

    My 2 yr old loves Hollywood Studios.  My family's favorite show is Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage.  Tots and the parents sit on a carpeted floor while they watch a live show with all their favorite morning Disney Channel characters.  A brand new show is starting in February and will feature stories from shows like Little Einsteins and Handy Manny.  There is also a meet and greet right outside the show with Playhouse Characters. 

    In Animal Kingdom, your daughter will enjoy the carnival atmosphere of DinoLand USA.  They have a Dumbo-like ride and a great playground called the Boneyard.  If you take the Train to Refiki's Planet Watch, you can make some new goat friends in a really nice petting zoo.

    Epcot has a very toddler friendly ride called "Journey into Imagination with Figment".  It is very colorful and has a great soundtrack.  There are periods of darkness on the ride, but they are very short.  I used this ride to see how my daughter would do.  Once I saw she wasn't too anxious with the darkness, I felt better bringing her on slightly scarier rides throughout WDW.
