    what is the best park to visit with a 1 year old? also, If I am doing a park hopper what are the best ones?

    Welcome back Kathy! Thanks for stopping by with your question.
    Magic Kingdom Park is absolutely my first option for families with little kids. The place is magical, offers many attractions for them, beautiful parades and “meet and greet” opportunities with Disney characters. It’s a Small World, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin are some “must-do” attractions for little ones.
    If you are planning to have a park hopper ticket, I would visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios as my second park for small kids. Park attractions are themed after Disney-Pixar movies and everyone’s favorite characters. You can consider a Character Dining Experience at Hollywood & Vine, my family´s favorite restaurant for meeting some of our Disney Junior friends, such as Handy Manny, Doc McStuffins and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Unforgettable moment! 
    However, if it is your first Disney vacation, I highly recommend you save at least one full day for exploring Magic Kingdom Park. The park is amazing, full of charm and entertainment for the all family.
    Hope this helps your planning. Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a “pixie-dusted” day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
