    Hi! My daughter and I are heading to Disney World on Saturday for a few days. We know we want to visit the Magic Kingdom, but are not sure which other Disney Park to visit. Any recommendations? She is 8 years old and does not like roller coasters. Thanks

    Hi Christina,
    Your short but exciting vacation is just a few days away. How wonderful!

    Magic Kingdom Park is where the magic starts, however the other theme parks have tons of fun to offer to kids of all ages. Here are some recommendations I hope you both like.

    At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Midway Mania! allows you to zoom along while shooting targets in an awesome 4D game, with your favorite Toy Story characters. You definitely want to arrive early to the theme park as it is a very popular attraction. 

    Any Star Wars fans nearby? Does the Force run strong in your daughter? Star Wars Awakens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Not only you can encounter Kylo Ren, but also meet and greet Chewbacca. Learn the ways of the Force, she can… and maybe face Darth Vader at Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. Take note that signups for this experience fill up within the first hour of park opening.

    If nature is what flows in her, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park would be an excellent choice, specially exploring the animals at Kilimanjaro Safaris, or petting some of them at Affection Station.

    Finally, if she wants to go around the world in one day, In Epcot, World Showcase lets you visit 11 countries, and not only experiencing their culture, but also enjoying some of their local foods. Make sure you stop at Kidcot Fun Stops too.

    So, ready? Set? Go have some fun!
