    Our family is visiting DisneyWorld in Oct. with 3 1/2 days for parks, starting with the 1/2 day . It's our first time and we have boys ages 5 (afraid of fast rides and scary creatures) and 7. What parks should we visit (no PH) and suggested attractions?

    Hi Katherine - My six year old son is also afraid of fast rides, so I totally understand.  Since you don't have a park hopper on your tickets, I'd recommend that you visit Epcot (on the half day).  The best attractions for little ones are Spaceship Earth, the Seas with Nemo and Friends, Journey into Imagination with Figment, Turtle Talk with Crush, and the Gran Fiesta Tour. 

    I'd recommend you spend the next three days at the Magic Kingdom (2 days) and Hollywood Studios (1 day).  At the Magic Kingdom, my kids like the Fantasyland rides, Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Stitch's Great Escape, and Splash Mountain.  At Hollywood Studios, check out Toy Story Mania, Star Tours (a bit scary, but my son still loves it), MuppetVision 3D, and Disney Junior Live on Stage.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
