    DWT's WDW for Infants-4years old

    Okay for our littlest Disney fans parnets this is a time to vocie your suggestions and ideas for traveling to the World with the littlest Disney lover in your family. The questions for you guys will be based of course in mind for children in this age range.

    What I would like is the child age, how many times has the child been, and the suggestion or advice. Example

    What's a good charcter meals if any are good to take children in this age range to and why?


    Child's age:2 year's old
    Female
    Times been to WDW:4
    Suggestion or Advice: Crystal Palace because my 2 year old loves the pooh Charcters and they have an excellent children buffet just their size

    Okay get the idea. What Im going to do is pose the same question for each age range. But either tweak this age range to fit or just give you guys a whole another question.

    Right now this is the format. I want to give it a test run first to see if anyone is interested. If it takes off the format may change or be tweaked a bit. If you have any suggestions on how this can be done let me know.


    Okay let's get started. The first question for the week is:

    What is a good charcter meal for children in this age range and why?

    What is a good charcter meal for children in this age range and why?

    1900 Park Fare....Cinderella Dinner(gala feast I think it is called)
    Took a 2 1/2 year old ...female ...Sept 05...times visited WDW - 1
    one on one interaction with the characters Prince, Cindy, Mice They take time to come and sit with the kids at the table(we had a corner booth) wide variety of food for both kids and adults(strawberry soup rocks!) Nice break from the MK but not so far away that you cant go back after you eat.

    EDIT:::My DD loved talking to Cindy and petting the mice's hands. She liked the carousel horses. At this age they pretty much dont like to sit still for any meal but the characters occupied her enuf to sit and eat inbetween visits. This was the only character meal we did.


    Did I do that right Jedi?...better?

    Close enough vix I'm just in the start up stage of this but this is fine only thing can you suggest why a two year old would enjoy this. I trying to base a lot of the answers toward the age of the child instead of in general it a great place for the characters. Like did your daughter like bein in this setting vs bein outside or another resturant. Did the character seem more friendly and attentive here.

    Like I said this is new so I'll figure the tweaks out of it soon.

    Child's age: 3 1/2 years old
    Male
    Times been to WDW:4
    Suggestion or Advice: Donald's Breakfastasaurus. The dinosaur theme was great for my dino-loving son, and breakfast buffet had a lot of variety that all ages enjoyed. Mickey, Donald, Goofy & Pluto appear in camp apparel and were playful.

    Child's age: 5 year old girl, 18 month old boy

    Times been to WDW:1
    Suggestion or Advice: Liberty Tree Tavern was great. My kids like "homecooked" food so they enjoyed the family style spread as well as the characters. The service was prompt also so the kids weren't fidgety waiting on food. It didn't hurt that Chip and Dale were there to occupy the time, either.

    (my daughter had just turned 5, but she was still in preschool at the time)

    • What is a good charcter meal for children in this age range and why?
    Children's age: 9, 6, and 2
    Times been to WDW: (let's just go with more than 15, okay?)
    Suggestions or advice: I recommend the Crystal Palace for this age range. Why? Younger kids love pooh and friends, this, in my opinion, is the less scary group of characters. We first took my son when he was 3. He was sorta shy with charecters most of the trip. But this quiet boy had a great time at this kid-friendly buffet, and when he saw Pooh, he ran up and gave him a big hug! Plus, this place is kinda loud, which, younger kids can be, so you will fit right in!
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    My niece Meg is 3 1/2 and she has been to Disney twice (ages 1 and 3 1/2).

    Favorite ride - "Pooh" (a.k.a. Winnie the Pooh ride) - Can't get a reason why at this age.

    Favorite Charcter meal - "Cinderella" - Same reason as above. The only answer we get is "I'm Cinderella".

    Can't expect more than that at the age of 3 1/2.

    Ok,
    Age: 10 months
    times to WDW: 2
    The best thing to do with a wee one is Epcot. MK has fantasyland and all that for little kids but, the best thing about Epcot is you can do it all in one day if you skip the big 3. You can't ride Mission Space, Soarin', or Test Track with a baby, so I suggest walking right by. Make the day more about the joy of the child than thrills. Trust me it is better than sweating through a 3 hour line for splash mountain. Epcot is great for little ones that can't walk yet because almost everything is Air-conditioned!
    1st thing you have to do when you walk in the park is get in the big ball and ride SSE. There are tons of lights and things to look at.
    2nd Stop by the character connection at innoventions. It is the best way to meet characters besides the character dinning. Here they can meet the characters in the air-conditioning -- without some rude mom pushing them out of the way. It is neat to see Mickey in toon-town fair, but there is AC here!!!
    3rd go ahead and check out the Energy pavillion if you have kids 3-4. They will love the dinosaur animatrons. Also if your skipping TT and MS that is the only thing on that side of the park so you should probably get it out of the way or trek over there for a good 20minute sit-down in the afternoon.
    Back to the East Side,
    4th Hit the living seas, there is a LONG wait for Turtle Talk with Crush right now. If your not opposed to criss-crossing the park hit this when the park opens. Kids that are old enough to talk will Love this attraction. All infants will love to see the movement of the fish in the aquariums.
    5th Kids might enjoy living with the land if only just to see the Mickey Pumpkins. Some 4 year olds might be tall enought for Soarin' so FASTpass it.
    This leaves the Imagination Pavillion.
    6th The last thing in FutureWorld is the Imagination Pavillion. My DD loves loves loves Figment. He is brightly colored he sings and dances. Some kids however get scared in the part where they blow air on you so watch out.
    7th Older Preschoolers will probably like the Honey I Shrunk the Kids movie more than younger kids. Some scary things happen, like mice bitting your ankles so you might just want to skip this one.
    This leaves a good bit of your evening open to have a romantic stroll around the world pavillion, hopefully someone will sleep in their stroller.
