rides for 3 yr old

by laurastokes

Re: rides for 3 yr old

The difficult part about bringing a child so young to Disney is that, for the large amount of money it will cost, she is unlikely to remember the experience. They are also vast parks that can wear a little one out in a big hurry.

Now, if it's not important to you that she remember it but simply enjoy the time, I would say that Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom at Disney are the only two places worth it for a young child - skip MGM and Epcot as there won't be much there she'd enjoy at all. And I'd also probably skip Universal - unless things have changed a lot since I was last there, there isn't much geared to the very young.

The trick is to go slowly and provide lots of opportunities for the child (and you) to rest. Find a shady corner and let her nap in the stroller for a bit each afternoon, or go back to the hotel - if staying in the park - for a quiet break and/or swim in the pool. All the people, noise and activity can be tiring for little ones so those breaks to rest and recover will make the difference between a happy, engaged child and a cranky tired one!

Ooh - great idea there, Keti!

Sea World is great - lots of sitting down to watch exciting shows and an easy-paced walk. Follow the guide they give you on entry and you pretty much cover everything you need to cover.
This is a great way to start your holiday and get acclimatised so make it day one IMO.

I went to Florida for the first time when I was 3 and that was 29 years ago - and I still remember it!!!

Obviously only snippets but it bore my adoration of all things Disney - hence the fact that I go at least once a year as an adult!

I have an 11 year old and we took him for the first time when he was 4 and he says that it was the best time of all the times that we've been.

I do agree that it is tiring so without doubt take a buggy, my friends 5 year old came last year and we hired the "trolleys" from each park and that was great but they aren't so good for little one's wanting to sleep!

My overall advice would be to wait a year longer but there's plenty to see and do in all the parks and for a 3 year old a lot of what they learn is through visual and stimulated learning! I have a house full of children everyday as my fiance is a childminder - theres only so much they can learn from books!

They are still building Legoland Florida as they are converting the old Cypress Gardens they purchased last year.

visit EPCOT CENTER. This is...

by Krystynn

visit EPCOT CENTER. This is my personal favorite and the MOST amazing of all the theme parks here.... Be sure to head straight to the top 2 attractions the minute you enter the park:-

Test Track
'Honey, I Shrunk the Audience'

Photo: The absolutely cool Spaceship Earth. The World Showcase is also a must-see and it's simply astounding. You know, I've since realized that coming to Florida in the middle of summer is a baaaad mistake.

Firstly, on some days, the temperature at the park rose to almost 40 degrees Celcius! I kid you not. People can faint under such extreme heat. And what's worse, in summer, you can EXPECT to queue up for at least one hour (minimum) to enjoy a particular attraction/ ride here at the park. On most days, we left our hotel by 7AM (yawn...) and didn't get back till almost 1.30AM!!! The WHOLE day was spent queueing up for rides!! O.K., O.K.... not the WHOLE day but more than 50% of our time was spent queueing up for these rides. :-(((

For more pics and details, please click onto my Epcot Center Travelogue page. You won't regret it. :-))

Sea World, the Orca display is...

by greebo

Sea World, the Orca display is absolutely fasinating but do be warned you get very, very, wet if you sit near the front, there is a splash line for those with expensive camera so that you do not get your equipment wet. Also the Atlantis ride is probably the best log flume ride I have ever been on, it is the longest drop log ride in the world and you get absolutely soaked, most of the americans were wearing plastic macs, they were in the know, we didnt and worse there are water jets that people can spray you with and it seemed to be a case of get the Brits.

Almost everywhere you go, you...

by JuliWarfel

Almost everywhere you go, you will be attacked by camera-wielding crazed photographers. Be nice. Just stop and smile for them. Most of them are paid per picture taken, not per picture sold. It only takes a few seconds if you cooperate and it makes their days much happier too.

Packing List

by DoctorDon

PACK LIGHT. Check the weather patterns for the area before you leave home, and realize that, if need be, you can buy clothes there (and probably will, anyway). You need only ONE pair of shoes -- a well-broken-in (NOT NEW) pair of sneakers -- I use Reebok shoes designed for walking, Tjorlo double-wall hiking socks (buy them at a camping supply store) and I've never had a blister or even a sore foot. T-shirts, shorts (plus a jacket & jeans in winter), a nice short-sleeved shirt and a nice pair of long pants in case you eat fancy. If you bring anything that looks like business clothes, go home; this is a VACATION. I am able to pack for a 10-day trip here in one suitcase that is just small enough to fit the carry-on requirements. Bring a folded-up duffel for all the extra stuff you'll buy.

For other tips on packing light, I recommend Rick Steves' book 'Europe Through the Back Door' just for the general traveling information. Of course, bring prescriptions in their original containers, but there is a pharmacy nearby for emergencies, and the hotel staff are great about such things. If you have a problem, let them know ASAP. I wouldn't even think of going to WDW without a video camera -- and the smaller, the better, because you're carrying it around a LOT. Let a second person in your group be responsible for the still photos. A HAT! YOU MUST BRING A HAT! IF NOT, YOU WILL BURN TO A CRISP! Preferably, something with a wide brim to keep the sun off your neck. I wear a Tilley Hat, which is basically a Austrailian 'bush' hat. (For more on their travel clothes, go to
