    Booked 5 nights at AKL. My husband and I will be watching our 9 yr old daughter at ESPN WWSC while my parents stay at the lodge w/ our 6 year old son. AK & MK mon&tues. What are must dos at the parks? Can my son stay occupied at AKL for 3 days?

    Hi, there!

     Laurie, I'm so very excited to hear about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. You are sure to have a magical stay with your family!

     You are going to LOVE Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. It's my favorite Disney Resort hotel! You'll be pleased to know that there are a ton of unique experiences and activities that will surely keep your son occupied. You'll receive a Recreation Calendar when you arrive and you can expect to find activities like Animal Tracking and Night Vision Animal Viewing that are perfect for your little guy. I suggest your parents and son visit Disney Springs while you and your husband are with your daughter. Disney Springs is just a convenient bus ride away and features lots of unique shopping and dining experiences. For an extra special kids-only experience for your son, consider making a reservation for him at Pixar Play Zone. He'd love it!

     At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, your family absolutely must ride Kilimanjaro Safaris. You'll feel like you're on a real, African safari through the savanna! Be sure to stop by Pandora - The World of Avatar too. 

     There is so much to do in Magic Kingdom Park, it's hard to choose the must-do's! I suggest you review the list of attractions and think about what your family would enjoy the most. Plan to stay until park closing so you can catch Happily Ever After. It's the perfect way to end a magical day!

     Please let me know if you have any other questions, Laurie!
