    Hello Doug, Glad to see a Dad playing an active role on the Moms Panel. We are planning a trip down to Disney for 4.5 days and was wondering what would be the best parks to visit for a family with children ranging from 3-6 years old.


    I actually think that all four parks are more than appropriate for kids aged 3-6. With just over 4 days there, you may, however, want to visit some of the park more than once, and save others for another trip. Here are a few suggestions for planning your days;

    • If you are going to go to a park more than once, make sure it is the Magic Kingdom. There is more to do there for kids your age.
    • If your kids are fans of the local zoo, bump Animal Kingdom up to your second most important park. While there is more to do there than look at animals, the park is a great place to see some exotic species, and in unique settings.
    • Hollywood Studios is a great place for your kids to see their favorite Disney Channel cartoon stars.
    • Epcot, while not the best park for kids aged 3-6, still has some great relevant attractions. 
    • If you are hitting all the parks for a day each, make that extra 1/2 day a Magic Kingdom day.
    • Try to make the Magic Kingdom your first stop. 
    Let me know if I can help further!

    Have a magical vacation!
