Walt Disney World Must Dos: For the Little Ones


This is the second posting for our blog series, Walt Disney World Must Dos. (Check out the first one HERE.) Today is all about the little ones.  One of the questions I’m asked most often is what age is the best for taking your kids to Walt Disney World. Although I don’t know the perfect age, I do know my husband and I have taken our three kids on lots of trips since they were babies. Our twin boys went for the first time as infants and are now 2 1/2 and have been a total of A LOT! Some may call us crazy, and we may be. But, I do know we enjoy it and our kids always enjoy it even more. So with that being said, we have gathered up the “must dos” for preschoolers in every park at Walt Disney World! This will help you make a master plan or itinerary for your upcoming Disney Vacation with your favorite preschooler! Your junior princess or pirate will absolutely adore these ride and attractions. So in no particular order, here are our favorites…
