    My DD will be 4 on our trip this year. We usually only do one day at MK, but this year we are doing 2 days. I'm not sure if we should do Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios. She loves Disney JR and the zoo. Or should we do both by getting a park hopper?

    Hi Sara! Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    Well, Magic Kingdom Park will always be my first choice for girls at this age range! Full of enchantment, it touches everyone’s heart!
    For a second day, it is a difficult question for me, because I love both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park! Amazing experiences, but each of them is perfect and magical in a different way! I would not recommend a park hopper ticket, because I believe you wouldn’t be able to enjoy all the good things you can find in both parks. I would say at least one day per each of these parks!
    When I took my daughter last year, she was 03 years old (almost 04!), and she was totally amazed by Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ attractions and activities. She even cried when it was time to leave the park. Because of that experience, I would suggest that you go there!
    There are very nice attractions for girls, such as Beauty and Beast Live on  Stage, Disney Junior - Live on Stage, For the first time in Forever: A Frozen sing along celebration and Voyage of the Little Mermaid. And a lot more for the whole family! I would also recommend Fantasmic!, a must-do show! One of my favorites. It is a breathtaking 30-minute fireworks and water performance.
    You haven’t mention when your are going to the Walt Disney World Resort, but there are some periods of the year that the parks get really busy. My advice is that you book your Fast Pass+, which allows you to reserve select attractions and entertainment in advance of your vacation. It is a very good deal when you are travelling with children!
    Hope I could help you with your planning. Come back again if you have more questions!
    Have a magical vacation!
