Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Coming in 8/14 with 2.5 yo. I am a super planner trying to figure out how to go with the flow at WDW with a toddler. Any suggestions on how to best plan out a day/stick to a schedule with an extremely active and exuberant boy? Dont want to upset him. TY!!

- Hi Holly!
As a mom of three, including a 3 year old princess, I understand the challenge to please the little ones. I can tell you that there is so much to see and do, that your little one will be exhausted at the end of the day! When planning for a trip to Disney, I recommend that you check the park hours for each day you will visit. This way, you can plan on which park you will visit each day. I like to plan each day according to the park that is open the longest and have ample time to enjoy it all! Be sure to sign up for your free account on My Disney Experience which will help you with building your itinerary. I also recommend that you check out which attractions your little one can ride. You can view a full list of attractions by visiting this page: Attractions. Be sure to pick the option that says "Any Height".
Here are a couple of "must see attractions" my little ones can't live without: "Toy Story Midway Mania" and “Disney Junior – Live on Stage!” at Disney's Hollywood Studios; "Peter Pan's Flight", "Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin", "It’s a Small World” and the "Magic Carpets of Aladdin" at the Magic Kingdom, "The Seas with Nemo and Friends" at Epcot and "The Boneyard" play area at Disney's Animal Kingdom! Also, you don't want your little one to miss meeting his favorite characters!
If I can offer any more "Visiting Disney with Toddler" tips, please feel free to send them my way!
Wishing you a great vacation!
