    Thank you for all your help. We are trying to visit four parks in three days. 1st day Epcot with ages 4-60 2 nd day our group decreases to five ages 13- 60 wondering your rec. on how to explore the other 3 parks in two days, What rides to young for teens.

    Hi Cheryl!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I suggest visiting the independent website TouringPlans.com.  That is the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for their touring plans which are step by step guides in how to experience the parks to maximize the number of attractions you can experience while minimizing your wait in lines.  Their recommendations are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  I would definitely check it out.

    With children in the group, I would suggest spending a whole day in the Magic Kingdom instead of spending a whole day in Epcot.  Or spend a whole day in each and then visit Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom on the same day.  The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort, and, in my opinion, of the whole theme park industry.  It is a favorite of many guests, young and old.  For example, it is my favorite theme park at Walt Disney World.

    Many guests consider Disney's Animal Kingdom to be a half day park.  So you could visit Disney's Hollywood Studios in the morning and then park hop over to the Animal Kingdom some time after lunch.  Many guests who arrived at Animal Kingdom early in the morning will be leaving in early afternoon so that is definitely a possibility; when the Animal Kingdom closes you could always park hop back to a park with late hours.

    Our responses are limited in length, but I would be happy to help you more.  Just write back with more questions!
