    Hi, I am planning a trip for my family in December. It is going to be there Christmas present. My question is, I have a 5 year old girl and a 11 year old boy, what parks would be best for those age groups?

    Hello Jessica,

    Your family is going to be over the moon to receive such an amazing Christmas gift! The family memories that will be created will last long past the magical trip.

    While I personally believe that all four theme parks would appeal to your family, I would think that your daughter will absolutely love all the fantasy and classic fun of Magic Kingdom, while your son might really love all the thrilling rides and amazing shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I can speak from experience as these are my kids' favorites and they are very close to your kids' ages. 

    My 10 year old son's favorite attractions are Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours - The Adventure Continues. It doesn't end there. Disney's Hollywood Studios has some pretty amazing stunt shows, such as Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! and Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. Be sure to check a times guide for show times. Even your daughter should love parts of this park with Disney Junior - Live on Stage, Muppet*Vision 3D and Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

    Magic Kingdom is the perfect place for a little girl to feel like a princess. Fantasyland is full of a wonderful attractions such as Enchanted Tales with Belle, Peter Pan's Flight, it's a small world, and Princess Fairytale Hall. There are also family fun attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain and Jungle Cruise. My daughter loves meeting characters throughout the parks, especially the princesses. Magic Kingdom will also appeal to your older child with Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the interactive experience, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

    Have a fantastic time making treasured memories!
