    We’ll be traveling to WDW in November with a 2.5 year old and a 9 month old! Which rides would be best for two adults, a very active toddler, and a lap infant? We’ll be visiting all the parks... send us luck!

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you're bringing your Mouseketeers to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I visited Walt Disney World Resort in May with my three best mom-friends and our collective five preschoolers, and Oh Boy! There were meltdowns, missed nap times, and one emergency bottle on Pirates of the Caribbean, but we had a blast. The good thing is you'll have two parents for the two kids, and can take a man-on defense if need be. You've got this!

    Walt Disney famously built his theme park with the whole family in mind, and that same principle still drives today's Imagineers. There are currently 100+ 'Any Height' attractions that your party can experience together, some of which you can all sit together in the same row! Some of our favorites are The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, The Jungle Cruise, and Kilimanjaro Safaris. Toy Story Mania is great fun and technically your party of four could fit in the same car, but do note that there are only two blasters. And don't overlook the entertainment! My three-year-old loves to sing and dance along with the various shows, but his absolute favorite is Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade.

    Pro Tips: Skip the FastPass+ for Dumbo the Flying Elephant as the stand-by line is actually an indoor play area for the kids, and benches with power ports for charing your phone for adults. You'll get a restaurant pager that will notify you when it's your turn to soar. And check out the full catalog of Disney Parks Moms Panel Preschool Planning Videos for even more tips!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Jennifer!
