    I have twins 8 years old girls and a 5 years old boy. Never been on Disney, we will be there for 3 days. Planning on be there on December 27th What is the best Parks for kids of that age? Thank you

    Ewasuh:

    Here are three options to consider for your trip:

    • Three parks, one park per day: This allows you to thoroughly enjoy three parks. With the ages of your children, I would opt to skip Epcot and enjoy a day at Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom. Epcot is a very large park and difficult to enjoy in just one day. Additionally, its marque attractions (Soarin', Test Track, Mission Space, and Sum of All Thrills) have a height requirement that your son may not meet. 
    • Two parks in three days: Like many first-timers, you may find yourself wanting to return to the Magic Kingdom for a second day. If so, I recommend omitting Animal Kingdom for the full day of attractions that DHS provides because Kali River Rapids at AK is not my preference to ride in the winter. Additionally, DHS offers Fantasmic at night when AK is closed.
    • Four parks in three days: You can opt to add on the Park Hopper Option to your ticket allowing you to split one of your days between two parks or all three days between all of the parks as you wish. I typically do not recommend families purchasing the Park Hopper Option because for the price, you could enjoy a memorable meal, your own private fireworks cruise or a myriad of experiences like Disney Quest or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. However, you'll be visiting during one of the busiest weeks of the year, and you may want the option of leaving a park that feels too crowded. If your budget allows for it, this option would allow you to squeeze Animal Kingdom and DHS into one day.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
