Walt Disney World Wish List by 4 and 5 year olds 

AD | I have been or could be if you click on a link in this post compensated via a cash payment, gift or something else of value for writing this post. See our full disclosure policy and privacy policy for more details.

Before we booked our Walt Disney World trip, Visit Walt Disney World was first on our toddler bucket list.

Now we have booked (for next April) and I have started to show the girls what it is all about, they have started to talk about doing specific things. Every time we watch another You Tube video or flick through The Little Big Book of Magic (again!) they add something else to their list.

However here is their current top ten – although I honestly think this list will change again and again as they realise what else there is to do at Walt Disney World and beyond.

1. Meet Anna and Elsa (Fabulous – I hear that Fastpass is really easy to get ?!?!)

2.  Meet Cinderella in her blue dress from that film that Daddy likes Mummy (!()

3.  Visit the Bibbidibobbidiboutique to get hair done like a princess.

4.  Have breakfast with Minnie and Mickey

5.  Peter Pan’s Flight

6.  Finding Nemo The Musical

7.  Wearing their own Disney costumes to the park

8.  Beauty and the Beast show

9.  Lots of water slides and fountains.

10.  Monsters Inc Show


What would be on the Wish List for your 4 and 5 year olds? I know there is so much more!

    I can highly recommend Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Katie did it a few years ago when she was 7 and the Fairy Godmothers who do the hair and make up are amazing. They really made Katie feel as if she was a princess. We did this and then followed it up with a meal in the actual castle. And then we went and did the photos with all of the Princesses. It was such an amazing day for her (and me). And the bonus was her hair stayed in for about 3 days xx

    My two are 4 and 5, and their favourite is Philharmagic. We did it 7 times in one day, and about 15 over the 2 weeks!

    All I wish for my little girl is that she has lots of really happy memories and does lots of fun and exciting things like I did when I was a child as they grow up way to fast and it’s nice to enjoy them and they little imaginations before they grow!!

    I go to Disneyworld every year and have been since going since I was 4 years old 🙂 I also had the fantastic opportunity to work over there for a year in EPCOT in the uk area 🙂

    You have missed one of the best shows off you list

    Disney’s Festival of the Lion King in Animal Kingdom – it is one of the best shows – it’s worthy of a broadway production and is our must see show everyone loves it from the kids up to the golden oldies

    The best place to have breakfast with Mickey and Minnie and co we found is Chef Mickey’s in the Contemporary resort – if you go for an early breakfast you can then walk to Magic Kingdom park in time for rope drop

    This is Drake and Harmony’s wishlist (we go in Sept)

    1. Toy story midway mania ride – Fast passes go stupidly quick for this so we have booked them well in advance

    2. All the evening shows – MK, EPCOT and Hollywood studios

    3. Festival of the Lion King, Beauty and the Beast & Nemo shows

    4. Chef Mickey’s for breakfast

    5. Frozen sing a long

    Our top tips for going with little ones

    1. take or hire a stroller with a sunshade – walking around the parks alone is tiring but in the sun it’s really hard for them – it’s not uncommon to see kids as old as 7/8 sitting in strollers – take a flannel from home and ask at quick service dining locations for some ice too which you can then use to wipe them over with

    2. if you are staying on site then book some chill out time as well – its really full on and we find split days work well – get to the parks early and do the big rides, then go back to the hotel to chill/nap/swim and back in the evening to do quieter rides and shows

    3. sunscreen, sunhat and shades for everyone! also take a pack-a-mac / poncho for rain storms

    4. some of the ride queues have activities to do whilst your waiting which is great but others dont – take a small activity to do whilst waiting in the queues for rides or for parades etc

    5. buy your souvenirs off site – the premium outlets which are at either end of international drive have character warehouse shops – these are disney shops selling discounted/discontinued merch at huge reductions e.g. a tee in the park will cost anything from $15-25 you can pick them up in the store for as little as $3. Plushies are $12+ in parks but you can pick them up in the shops for $6ish. Also pretty much every shopping strip is gonna be selling disney, universal, sealworld and tourist merch along I-drive and along the I-92 and along crossroads (main tourist routes)
