The first time I took my youngest son to Disney World he was 17 months old. Yes the trip was fun and we had a great time, but it was exhausting dealing with him, especially in the Animal Kingdom. The Animal Kingdom park is VERY hot and VERY humid and dealing with a toddler on top of that can be challenging. However, I did find a great place to take him that was shaded, somewhat cooler, and was something HE enjoyed doing.

The Boneyard, located in DinoLand U.S.A. was it! This is an open play area that looks like a dinosaur dig site where kids of all ages, especially toddlers and preschoolers, can explore and have fun. There are multi-level slides, hands on musical bones, rope bridges, and a huge dig site where children can  look for fossils from a T-Rex or Triceratops. The dig site has a shaded seating area with large fans to help keep cool. So not only was my little guy happy to be out of the stroller and able to run around and play but we were able to cool off in the digging site and relax for a little while.

So if you are looking for something to entertain your younger children or just need to stop and relax for a while the Boneyard is a great place!
