    What park is best for 4 and 6 year olds... Disney's Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom? We will only do 1 of these. We're questioning due to the ongoing major construction at DHS. We will also be visiting MK and Epcot. Thanks!

    Hi Laura!

    This is always a tough question to answer as each child and each family has a different interest so it becomes a personal decision.

    If I had to choose for my own family I would definitely take them to the Animal Kingdom Park. My family loves animals and animal experiences so this is a perfect fit for us. The Safari ride alone gives you a different view on each trip and kids of all ages will never tire of seeing these exotic animals roaming just outside of their safari vehicle.

    The Lion King live show is the best production on property in my view. Children’s attention will be captured from the moment it begins as they watch trapeze “tumble monkeys”, fire twirler, dancers, and unbelievable singing as they bring to life the wonderful Lion King show!

    I always suggest parents take time to take the younger guests to Rafiki's Planet Watch during their park stay. This is a short train ride to where you can visit live animals in an enclosed area, watch simple vet procedures, and often touch exotic animals with the assistance of cast members. This is also a place for special meet and greets.

    There is much more to see and experience and certainly don’t forget to have the kids experience the new Navi River ride in the Pandora area. Right now the lines are long so be sure and get a FastPass for this attraction. Because of their age they might be too short to ride the Flights of Passage new attraction.

    Whatever you choose I know you can find fun things for all ages during your park visits!
