    We are bringing my 8 year old son in May. I have to decide whether to spend 2 days at Epcot or 2 days at Hollywood Studios. Which park would an 8 year old want to spend more time?

    Hi Brandice!  My first question is are you sure you have to make this decision? If you purchase a two day park ticket without Park Hopper option it simply means you can only go to one park each day. But you can do Hollywood Studios on the first day and then head over to Epcot the second day. You just can't go to more then one park for each day. If you did this he would be able to experience both great parks and that tough decision would not have to be made!

    I suggest you have your son look over the different attractions at both parks and have him decide what he would really like to see and do during his stay.  You can do that by going to Click on PARKS at the top and then click on each park. On the left side you will see ATTRACTIONS and can click to see the listing of what is offered in the parks. Which park wins out might be indicated upon whether your son is a thrill seeker as the Studios have the great Tower of Terror and Rock n Roller Coaster.  Epcot has great hands on activities in Innoventions as well as some all time favorites such as Soarin. Both parks are super and I hope you can take a day in each one!
