    We are taking our 3 year old son to WDW- we took him last year for 2 days but this year we are going for a week. I am trying to plan what to do each day. I am trying to figure out if we should take him to Epcot or not...any suggestions?

    Hi Jennifer!

    I know Epcot has a reputation of not being overly "kid friendly", but I disagree.  My youngest son loved Epcot when he was that age.  Specifically, he loved the Seas with Nemo and Friends.  He could spend several hours in that pavilion.  He especially loved Turtle Talk with Crush.  He was always amazed at all of the sessions with Crush; it is also a lot of fun for parents to watch!  He also enjoyed visiting the Epcot Character Spot and seeing four or five classic Disney characters at once.  In my opinion, it's easier to meet characters in Epcot than at the Magic Kingdom. 

    However, my youngest son at that age did not enjoy visiting the countries of World Showcase, except for the Mexican Pavilion.  Thus on many trips we would only spend a half a day in Epcot (in Future World) or the family would split u p and my youngest and I would return to the Magic Kingdom, while my wife and oldest stayed in Epcot.

    If you have the Park Hopper option then I would definitely give Epcot a try!  Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
