    We have a family member willing to watch our 8 month old one day during our trip so we can spend some QT with our 4 year old. Which park would be better to take the baby to (or better to take our 4 year old to alone)...Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios?

    I think the entire family is going to have a magical vacation to Walt Disney World. There are so many things to do and see for kids of all ages. For the tiny one you need to take a trip to the Magic Kingdom. The baby will have fun on 'it's a small world,' the classic Jungle Cruise and a ride across the Rivers of America on the Liberty Square Riverboats. All of these attractions are perfect for the young and the young at heart. When my kids were little they really enjoyed these classics and we took some great photos to remember these special times. For your 4 year old I would head over to Disney's Animal Kingdom. From looking at all of the amazing animals in their habitats, to the great shows like the Festival of the Lion King, this is a great park for you to spend some quality time. I would make a point of going on the Kilimanjaro Safari to get up close with lions, elephants, giraffes and many more African wildlife. You also need to take him to play at the Boneyard. This huge multi level kids play area has slides, play areas and even a spot to excavate 'dinosaur bones.' Kids really love this place and I think you all will have a great vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth. See you at the parks.
