Here, children take part in organised activities such as art and enjoy meals and a Disney movie to end the evening.

Disney’s Magic Kingdom is perfect for little ones, with shows, rides and the parades aimed at toddlers and younger children. Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers fantastic safari themed attractions with live animals, and there’s a little bit more shade and quiet walking time. Epcot is a great choice for families of mixed ages and there’s lots of interactivity which the little ones will enjoy, such as the interactive Turtle Talk and A Voyage Under the Sea with Nemo.
