    What order is best for seeing the 4 parks for the first time? For kids age 2-9?

    Hi, Julie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Deciding which theme park to visit first can be a tough choice to make, especially on a first visit.  Each park offers something magical and extraordinary, so knowing what your kids are most excited about might help you to decide where to start! 

    Characters can be spotted at each park. Attractions for all ages are each park. Delicious food and treats are also found at each park.  There's so much to see and experience!

    With the age range of your children, getting their input will not only be fun but give you and idea of which park sounds most exciting for them!

    Determining the order of parks can also be determined by park hours and what FastPass+ choices are available on the days of your visit. 

    Here's my suggestion. Start at the Magic Kingdom! This iconic theme park has parades, dance parties, and rides that will suit every member of your family. Next, you can head over to Epcot. This massive theme park is bit more mellow and relaxing allowing your kids to take in the beautiful flowers, dancing water, and learn as you walk through a few countries of the world. Third, head over to Disney's Hollywood Studios! From Star Wars to Disney Junior, this theme park has attractions and shows, like the Frozen Sing-Along Celebration that your entire family will enjoy. Last, but certainly not least, Disney's Animal Kingdom, takes you to Africa and Asia, to see some of the world most beautiful animals. There's not as many rides or shows at this park, but the experience is magical. 

    With this schedule, there's a break in between the most exciting parks for children. But no matter what order you choose, you're at Walt Disney World! Your kids will have the best time of their life making lifelong memories!

    Happy planning
