Toddler and Baby playing in WDW advice

Anyone try the new interactive queues with a toddler yet? We will be there in 3 weeks with our kids, DD2 and DD1. I am super excited about the new queues! I did do the old Dumbo with my oldest on her 1st birthday and she loved it! I love what I am seeing about Storybook Circus and the preschooler play area. Same goes for the Pooh ride!!! (DH and I are actually incredibly excited for this trip! We are catering everything toward the kids and can't wait to have the preschool experience. I haven't been on the Tea Cups in 25 years ) How about H&V PnD? Boardwalk playground? What are your favorite play areas?

My two year old loved the Dumbo play area. We didn't try the Pooh area but it looked cool.

There is a small play area near Splash Mountain exit that our 1 yr old loved. Play &Dine at Hollywood &Vine is also great for the kids. The character interaction is great, DS was dancing and clapping the whole meal!

When we were there in October, by DD (2 1/2) LOVED the Dumbo ride, so much that we managed to bypass the play area each time we rode using fast pass. She enjoyed the Pooh que, but I found it irritating that there were adults "playing" with items and not giving my daughter the chance to play...really? You're 40+ years old and need to play with a bumble bee while my 2yo looks at you? Anyway, she also likes the play area at the bottom of Splash. Don't forget about the bone yard at AK, we spent a good hour there. We are headed back to the world in 2 days and I'm looking forward to seeing the new stuff at Epcot for the Flower festival.

We had a few problems at the Dumbo play area. There were kids way too big in the the younger child play area. They were running around and knocking the small children over. Didn't see their parents tell them to go play in the area for bigger children.

My boys loved the Pooh area (it drove me and several other parents crazy!! Lol)

It was a lifesaver though because our 20 minute line was actually just over an hour!! I actually asked someone that was walking past what the time on the board was and it still said 20 minutes - lots of unhappy people!!
