A Toddler’s Guide to Downtown Disney

I took our son to Downtown Disney this morning to pick up a birthday gift for someone special. It was his first trip, and while we didn’t have a ton of time to spend, we stopped by the hot spots and he put together this little guide to share with all the other toddlers out there to the must see at the Marketplace (cupcakes included!).
