    We are coming the first week of December with our 4 and 6 year olds, and have time to go to one other park besides Magic Kingdom. Which would you recommend between Animal Kingdom and Epcot?

    Hi again Peggy! 

    I'm so excited to answer another question from you. Keep them coming!

    For your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation with your 4 and 6 year old, you'll have some great options for theme parks besides Magic Kingdom. Between Disney's Animal Kingdom and Epcot, a visit to Animal Kingdom should be at the top of your list.

    Both kids will enjoy Kilimanjaro Safaris, an attraction where you'll never have the same experience twice. They'll also love DinoLand U.S.A. My 3 year old and my 8 year old both love spending time in this part of the park. We've even jumped onto TriceraTop Spin 3 times in a row! The character meet-and-greets will also keep your family busy during your visit, with Winnie the Pooh, Pocahontas, and more greeting guests throughout the day. Your 6 year old may also be interested in the Wilderness Explorers scavenger hunt. It's an all day activity that kids really get into, and so do the parents.

    You can end the day at Tusker House Restaurant, where a delectable dinner buffet is the star. Sounds like a pretty amazing day to me!

    If you need more tips, tricks and advice for your day at Animal Kingdom, check out the Walt Disney World for Preschoolers page.

    I hope this answered your question, Peggy. If you have any more questions feel free to ask at any time. I'm always here to help.
