    We are traveling with our 9 and 6 year old boys in March (4th-9th). It is their first time on Disney, our 5th. What is a must do for children, and is there a best time/place to meet characters? Thank you!

    Hi Erin:

    I'm a parent of two boys, ages 8 and 6, who have been traveling to Disney World since they were infants. I would love to share some of my family's must-dos for our Disney World vacations.

    Among many other things: at the Magic Kingdom, we always ride the Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Mickey's PhilharMagic, and it's a small world. At Epcot, we take in Spaceship Earth, Living with the Land, and tour the countries of World Showcase through Agent P's World Showcase Adventure. Highlights of World Showcase are the Kidcot Fun Stops, which are craft stations where children can draw and color while learning about different cultures as they interact with Cast Members from around the world. Our must-dos at Hollywood Studios include Toy Story Mania and Muppet Vision 3-D. At Animal Kingdom, our family always rides the Kilimanjaro Safari and visit Conservation Station. 

    If your boys are like mine, they may appreciate a trip to The Pirates League or a voyage for the Pirates and Pal's Fireworks Voyage. 

    When you get to the parks, pick up a complimentary Times Guide. Along with providing information regarding show times, parades, and special events, the Times Guides generally include character greeting times and locations.  But for my family, we tend to schedule breakfast or dinner at Chef Mickey’s where Mickey and his friends make the rounds and greet you right at your table.

    Enjoy your vacation.
