My 2.5 year old, Grandma, and I are arriving in WDW a day before my wife gets there. I’d like to make a fun first impression on my lo so I currently have Beaches & Cream Soda Shop reserved for dinner. Aside from character dining (which we plan to do in the following days) are there other (keep it simple) options I should be considering? We’re staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort so I’m also interested to know if there is a closer option worth considering. I made the newbie mistake of thinking this restaurant was on the same property as where we’re staying (Beach Club and Caribbean Beach… you see what I did there!) I don’t mind taking transportation (as that will be part of the experience). So glad to have learned about this resource! Thanks for your time.
If you’re not going to a park, you may want to consider either a) exploring the resort (beautiful and huge), or b) going to Downtown Disney. Getting from resort-to-resort can be a very long process requiring a bus transfer somewhere. Not so fun with a 2.5 year old after a day of travel. Rainforest Cafe and T-Rex in Downtown Disney get a lot of points for theming, and there are lots of fun things to explore there (basically a giant clean outdoor Disney mall.)
Oh, and Raglan Road in Downtown Disney, too… but I’ve never been there. Sounds like the show is musical and fun?
We’ve done Rainforest plenty, but will check out other suggestions. I was about to blow off Raglan Road, but after looking it up… 2.5 year old + fun music and dancing on tables = mind blown! I’ve got some decisions to make.
Oh! Raglan Road would be perfect! Music! Dancers!
