    Would like my grandchildren ages 3 and 5 to experience another park other than Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. I have taken them there twice. What park would you suggest for those age groups?

    Hi Becky,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Trips with grandchildren to the Walt Disney World Resort are awesome!

    When our girls were close to that age, they actually loved Epcot. We spent a lot of time at Innoventions. I suggest that you check the height requirements for rides at each park to see which attractions your grandchildren can both experience - Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom theme parks all have attractions for little ones. The animals at Disney's Animal Kingdom are AMAZING! We also consider the character experiences and character dining options at each park. We adore the character experiences in Epcot and love the character dining option at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Also, consider the character and entertainment experiences at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, we love to dine at Tusker House Restaurant to see Safari Donald Duck and friends while at Disney's Hollywood Studios, we have a blast at Star Wars Launch Bay.

    Becky, we always do a pre-park opening dining reservation so that we can get into the parks early! At Epcot, we make a reservation at 8:00 a.m. for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. We finish dining by 9:00 a.m. and dash to ride Frozen Ever After. With this plan, we can use our three initial Fast Pass+ selections for other attractions!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
