    Hello! My family of five consists of five, four, and one year old daughters. We're considering staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. I think it's called the Jambo House (?). My question is this, which park(s) are suitable for such small children? Thank you.

    Hi Antoinita! Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House offers breathtaking views of the animals on the savannas. There are several activities offered daily for your family to enjoy. The Uzima Springs Pool offers a great slide for your oldest children to enjoy and a kiddie pool for your youngest child. Overall, the Resort is amazing and you and your family will really enjoy Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House!

    While all four of the Disney Theme Parks are great for children all ages (and adults,too!), Magic Kingdom Park is a "Must-do" Park for families with young children. You will spend a good majority of your time in Fantasyland, because of the numerous attractions for younger children. I would recommend that you return to Magic Kingdom Park the next day, so that you can enjoy all the areas of the Park and not feel rushed.

    I would also recommend that you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios and do so over two days. Families with younger children enjoy Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage! and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure. I would also recommend that you arrive to the Parks early, take a break midday for naps and relaxation, return late afternoon/early evening and enjoy additional attractions, including the Parades and Fireworks.
