Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!
I think you made a great decision to concentrate on the Magic Kingdom. It is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and the favorite park of many guests, including me. I would recommend the following attractions:
- Winnie the Pooh in Fantasyland
- Dumbo in Fantasyland
- Peter Pan in Fantasyland
- it's a small world in Fantasyland
- Jungle Cruise in Adventureland
- Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland
- Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin in Tomorrowland
- Carousel of Progress in Tomorrowland
- People Mover in Tomorrowland
- Country Bear Jamboree in Adventureland
Some other attractions are hit or miss with children that young. That includes Mickey's PhilharMagic and the Haunted Mansion. Mickey's PhilharMagic is a great 3-D film with no scary party, but some children are just scared of or would rather just play with the 3-D glasses. The Haunted Mansion is frightening to some young guests while other young guests love it. Some 6 year olds definitely love the Haunted Mansion, though I can tell you my youngest son didn't really like it until he was 8. Actually he probably would have liked it at a much younger age, but he refused to go in and we didn't force him!
You should also do the various Disney Character Meet and Greets located in the Magic Kingdom. You can meet Mickey Mouse and a lot of Disney Princesses in Town Square. Pick up a Times Guide when you first enter the park!
I hope this helps! Please write back with more questions!
