    If I must choose between Animal Kingdom or Epcot for a day with my 3 boys (5, 7 and 9) which would you recommend?? We are visiting in January. Thanks!

    Hi Laurie,

    It is such a tough choice to choose between two Disney World parks because they are all wonderful and have unique features. The choice between Animal Kingdom and Epcot depends upon what you and your boys love to do.

    If you like dining, shopping and fireworks, Epcot is the park for you. Epcot has been a favorite for my family because of the fun attractions, outstanding food and Illuminations. 

    However, many folks prefer Animal Kingdom, especially if you love animals. At Animal Kingdom, kids can enjoy Affection Station where they can pet sheep and goats. The Conservation Station is both fun and educational, as you can watch the Disney veterinarians in action, understand the nutrition for the animals at the park and even peek at the animals through web cams. 

    Both parks have a variety of attractions that will appeal to you and your boys. At Epcot, I love Spaceship Earth, Test Track and Soarin'. Epcot also has a lot of entertainment throughout the World Showcase, such as the British Revolution and Voices of Liberty.

    Animal Kingdom is home to Expedition Everest, an extremely popular attraction! And you won't want to miss Kilimanjaro Safaris

    No matter which park you choose, you will have an amazing experience!
