Overview

Planning your trip to Walt Disney World with preschoolers has never been easier.

Beyond the Attractions: A Guide to Walt Disney World with Preschoolers has all the information parents need to plan an unforgettable Walt Disney World vacation with kids, ages 2-5. Written by a mom and Disney veteran who regularly visits Walt Disney World with her young family, this Walt Disney World travel guide is packed with child-focused information, tips, and insights from a parent's perspective. Its focus on the unique needs of preschoolers and their parents sets Beyond the Attractions apart from other guides.

From the first chapter, which considers whether your preschooler is ready for a Walt Disney World vacation, how to prepare for the trip and add to your child’s anticipation; the advantages of using a travel agent; and the best times of year to visit, Beyond the Attractions offers a winning combination of practical advice and recommendations presented in a casual, friendly, and accessible format.

Author Lisa M. Battista includes up-to-date details on toddler- and preschooler-friendly attractions, recreation, lodging, and dining, but goes well beyond the shows, rides, resorts, and food to consider the logistical challenges that are part of traveling with small kids. Learn about family-friendly services at Walt Disney World such as stroller rentals, Baby Care Centers, and child-care options that will enhance your visit and the memories of your Walt Disney World vacation. Ms. Battista has numerous suggestions to help you bring home the magic with activities that range from preparing Disney-inspired food to keeping journals and creating shadowboxes, puppet shows, and scrapbooks.

Find more preschooler-focused information in this guidebook including must-do attractions for toddlers and preschoolers; attraction elements that may scare small kids; the best attractions for the little daredevils in your family; attractions the whole family can enjoy together; hidden activities when your kids need a change of pace; ideas to keep the kids entertained while waiting in line; descriptions of each Walt Disney World resort; safety tips for your vacation; a preschooler packing list and vacation planning timeline; and maps showing the locations of preschooler-friendly attractions in Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Beyond the Attractions advises Walt Disney World visitors on the best restaurants and dining experiences for kids and clearly explains the Disney Dining Plans. Child-focused recreation options such as pirate adventure cruises, princess and pirate makeovers, and old-fashioned dockside fishing are included. The author also suggests the best ways to get around the “World” and describes ticket options with the needs of preschoolers in mind. Ms. Battista knows that kids need breaks and recommends a variety of alternatives such as wet play areas, air-conditioned theaters, pin trading, or relaxing riverboat or train rides. She even notes the availability of healthier dining choices for kids and the locations of fresh fruit stands.

New in the 2012 edition are tips for successful multigenerational travel, previews of the Fantasyland expansion, recent additions to attractions and hidden activities, and updated information on lodging, dining, and recreation. The expanded resources include special events, baby gear rentals; grocery and baby supply delivery services; medical care facilities and pharmacies, a handy guide to dining and recreation rates, and character greeting locations.

Save hours of research planning a Walt Disney World vacation that is perfect for your family with this easy-to-read, concise, yet complete Disney World travel guide.
