    alot of things in fantasyland obviously (lots of colors and things to stimulate)

    also alot of shows in mgm if hes into the disney chanel characers, and if he likes animals then things like kilimanjaro safaris in DAK and the forest walkthrough exhibits in DAK

    I was at Disney World yesterday with a 6 month old. The rides that are kid-friendly at Epcot are... The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Figment, Universe of Energy (if they dont like the dark or loud noises, this is a no!), Spaceship Earth, and Mexico.

    Definitely Fantasyland though, and toontown! :-)

    to the boards, mrosa008!

    Ah, the fun of taking a 2 year old.... been there, lived to tell.
    A lot of it depends on your 2 year old. Mine was very resistant to new things and anything he couldn't control. We spent a lot of time walking around enjoying the atmosphere.

    Things he did like: It's a Small World, Peter Pan's Flight, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Magic Carpets of Aladdin.
    At Epcot, walking around the exhibits at the Seas, the playground at the exit of Mission: Space (go in through the gift shop), watching the cars zip by on Test Track (but not riding it). We had a nice snack at The Land while waiting for daddy to ride Soarin' - not much in there for little kids. Imagination has dark, loud, and scary parts now. World Showcase, the model trains near Germany kept him fascinated for a long time, and some of the performers interested him, but nothing really in the countries themselves.
    At MGM, Playhouse Disney, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground, those were good, and he did okay on the Backlot Tour. Lights, Motors, Action is pretty loud at times, but he made it through it. Other than that, most of the shows were too long.
    Animal Kingdom - Festival of the Lion King, all the animal trails, the safari (bouncy - hang on tight to them!), Triceratops Spin (much shorter wait than Dumbo), the Boneyard.

    Hope that helps a bit!

    I second all of those DisneyDame! My son loved IaSW. Fantasyland is pretty much a safe bet, although mine was 1 1/2 last year when we went and I took him on HM. Not something I would recommend for the average 2 year old. Mine is pretty mellow about stuff like that as long as he has Mom and "the blanket".

    If he isn't easily intimidated, do as many character greets as you can. Mine loved the costumed characters but not the live ones. Go figure!

    Hes a very Smart active little boy, smarter than his age so i think he wouldnt get scared in certain rides, but mostly? do all rides have restrictions? obviously i know the major ones like rollercoasters but for example i have never been on soar? but is that something tuff for a child or is that a visual ride?

    If you are taking your child for your child's enjoyment of the park, go to Magic Kingdom. You don't make it clear if you are only going for one day/one park.

    Soarin' has a height requirement, so your 2 yr old will not be able to ride it.

    A list of all attractions with height restrictions can be found here: http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/for...ead.php?t=9287
