    I am coming with a 6 and 2 yo for 3 days. Apart from Magic Kingdom and HS, which other park should I visit?

    Hi Bisi!

     Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios are great  for young Disney World travelers! It's tough to choose just one more park. I would have to decide based on the kids interest at the time of your visit, and the rest of your itinerary.

     My kids really enjoyed Epcot and Animal Kingdom! I think Epcot and Animal Kingdom might be overlooked by families with small children, but they have some of the most unique attractions that little ones can enjoy!

     For instance, at Epcot, my kids enjoy wandering the world and trying different foods while taking in shows featuring each nations traditions. Then exploring Future World's every nook where they not only enjoy attractions like The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Turtle Talk with Crush, but also all the lights on the ground at night and the fountains which are beautiful. There's also a fun play area in the exit area of Mission:Space. I think Epcot has some of the best dining options throughout all of Walt Disney World Resort, so consider taking time to eat at a restaurant there. Epcot is park you can spend the whole day at.

     Animal Kingdom is huge. Yes, there are animals, but don't mistake this theme park with a zoo. Walking around and noticing the details makes you realize that Disney has done a great job recreating the different areas, like Asia and Africa. My family likes the Kilimanjaro Safaris, and the best thing is each safari is a different experience. The absolute must sees at Animal Kingdom, in my opinion, are the Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo-The Musical shows. Both are shows you won't soon forget! Animal Kingdom, being as large as it is, will take a big part of your day, but you'll notice it also tends to close earlier than the rest of the theme parks. If you're looking for a shorter day this might be your choice.

    Hope that helps! Come back to the Moms Panel if you have need more help in planning your magical vacation!
