I don’t remember a lot from when I was a preschooler, but I do remember my vacations to Walt Disney World® with my parents. They were such a magical time for me and I have so many fond memories of my family and those trips. And honestly, there is no better time to visit Walt Disney World® than when you have a preschooler.
The reason I say that is because, in my opinion, a preschooler is old enough that traveling with them is much easier than a toddler or baby, but they are still young enough that all the magic and wonder will not be missed by them.
I have taken both of my children to Walt Disney World® when they were preschool age and those trips were honestly some of the best family trips I’ve ever taken. There is nothing better than seeing all the fun that Disney resorts provide through the eyes of a preschooler. It is definitely a must in my opinion and something you will never regret. Here are some ways to keep preschoolers busy on the way.
I have a fond memory of walking down Main Street U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom® Park with my son and he spontaneously started dancing to the band that was playing. I had never seen him so happy and dancing so completely carefree. I will never forget it.
With my daughter, I can still remember the utter joy she expressed as she met her favorite princesses in real life. It was a dream come true for her and I am so happy we have those precious memories.
While on your trip, make sure you take a lot of photos so that you will always have those memories to look back on—they are some of my favorite photos of my little ones. Another fun thing I have done to keep the memories alive is that I will have a canvas print of an adorable trip photo and hang it on the wall in our home. It is such a fun reminder of a happy time and is sure to make your child smile each time they see it.
