We all have our favorite attractions and shows we have to go see when visiting the Walt Disney World Resorts and Theme Parks. There are so many things to do at Disney, seeing it all in one visit is near impossible. That is why we all have these must-do lists when planning a vacation. Focus on providing your little ones with a vacation that includes everything they will need to see during their first Disney vacation.
To help you plan these magical adventures with your little ones, I have compiled a list of must-see attractions just for the little guys.
Find a seat in front of Cinderella’s Castle and watch the fireworks in the sky over the castle. If this is where you want to sit, make sure to arrive early. Seats are prime real estate prior to a fireworks show at any park. Make plans for one of you to sit while the other keeps the kids busy until show time.
Just like for the fireworks, get your seat early for the three o’clock parade. It begins at three o’clock (like you couldn’t figure that out…lol) so it is best to arrive about an hour early to find and claim your seats.
Ride some pint-sized favorites, including it’s a small world, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel and “Mickey’s PhilharMagic.”
Kids will love the nightly firework display over the World Showcase Lagoon. IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is one of the more popular firework shows at Disney World. This show is held nightly just before Epcot closes and features all of the country’s from around the World Showcase and will keep the kids “ooing” and “ahhing” from start to finish.
Do not forget to interact with Crush at Turtle Talk or have kids make their own souvenirs at the many different Kidcot Fun Stop throughout the theme park.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Popular attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios include Playhouse Disney-Live on Stage, Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage. Other kid favorites include Fantasmic! and Lights! Motors! Action!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
Arrive early in the day to enjoy watching the animals play on an African savannah aboard a tour with Kilimanjaro Safaris. Or dance to the music of the Festival of the Lion King. Do not forget to get your seats early for Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle parade.
However, I do have to say, that Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park was one of our favorites with the kids when they were younger. Lots of things to see and do, which will keep the kids entertained from the moment you step foot in the park.
