    We are headed there Presidents day weekend and Ive heard there will be LONG lines for the big rides that my older son will want to ride. So I am looking for things that my wife or I who ever isnt going on the ride with our son to do that will make her trip excellent.
    Thanks!

    My 3yo is REALLY into the princesses, so we took her to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutiquein MK and did princess meals at Akershus in Epcot and Cinderella's castle. For this summer, she's asking to do "all the princess stuff." Her favorite rides in MK are Dumbo, Aladdin's Flying Carpets, and Goofy's Barnstormer, although she really likes mostly everything.

    At AK, while the others are riding Everest and Dinosaur, you can hit up some characters. There's always SOOOOOOO many over there. Last summer, my mom took the little ones on an extra trip through the safari while I took my oldest on Everest. It was close to closing and the lines were practically non-existent.

    Most 3 year olds are just fascinated by princesses, so I would do the BBB (bippidi boppidi beautique). If possible, go to Cinderella's Royal Table or Norway's Askerhaus. But even things like playgrounds, such as the one in Dumbo, or Innoventions at Epcot, will keep her fascinated. My son loved the Piggy Bank activity in Innoventions at Epcot. It's above their head what they are really doing, but they love carrying the pig from station to station.

    There is so much to see and do, I doubt you'll have any trouble finding things to do to keep your daughter interested in all there is to do!

    Ive heard about the BBB and im sure my daughter would love it as she also is a Disney Princess Fanatic but Ive heard it is very expensive.

    What about the castle walk through? I am not sure how it works at WDW but we just did it as Disneyland and my daughter enjoyed it.

    Yes, the $54.95 package is the typical package. Be sure to bring your own dress from home. I was able to buy a Rapunzal dress at 50% off from Disney's online store. And it was really 50% off because when I got to the park, the Rapunzel dress was there for $70. You can also get some cute dresses sometimes from Target, etc.

    Enchanted Tales with Belle was wonderful. Plus like everyone else said the Bippiti Boppiti Boutique too.

    is a bit different. It is worth going through the castle. There are two great murals that depict the Cinderella story. The detail in colors is interesting. Also interesting is that the designer of the murals was a great WWII interrogator.

    Peter Pan and Dumbo are fun for that age. Both can have long lines. I suggest getting a fastpass for PP and heading over to Enchanted Tales and then Dumbo first thing. Pooh has an interactive queue that should entertain her if the line is longer.

    Besides the princesses, don't forget Minnie, Mickey, etc. For some reason my daughter is fascinated with Pluto.

    As others have said, if you're at MK be sure to walk thru the castle. Visit Mickey at the town square. If the Dumbo line is too long and you miss the chance to get a fast pass, head over to Adventureland and check out the Magic Carpets of Aladdin.

    If you're at Hollywood Studios you might be able to catch the Disney Jr. Live show or some character meet and greets.

    The highlights for our three year old were the Mermaid show in DHS and Beauty and the Beast show also in DHS.

    In AK it was the Lion King show and the safari.

    EPCOT was Crush, NEMO and the aquarium

    MK was dumbo the carousel and Pooh ride

    She also loved all of the characters.

    I was talking to a disney rep on the phone and she told me about the Pirates League (which I had never heard of) Where my daughter can get all done up like a mermaid so I locked that in for her.

    to my wife yesterday about a BBB reservation for our daughter on the next trip. She mentioned that the last time we went that people were walking in and they were being accepted. That was in late June so it was pretty busy.
