    If its our first time with our 1 yr old son. What would be the best parks to spend the most time in since we are only going 3 days?

    Hi, George!  The first time for a little one to Disney is such a special occasion! 

    For my daughters, when they were as young as your son, the two parks we spent the most time in were the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  There is so much to see and do in the Magic Kingdom, and much of it is family friendly, meaning you can ride the ride or see the attraction with your son.  I love watching the little faces light up on things like It's a Small World or as they watch the parade. 

    We always found EPCOT to be a good place for our daughters.  There always seemed to be lots of places for them to walk around.  My middle daughter took her first unassisted steps at EPCOT!  There are characters to meet and greet, rides to go on, but the best part for us was nap time!  My daughters always seemed to take nice long naps while we wandered around the World Showcase at EPCOT, giving us time for a leisurely lunch or some shopping in the World Showcase.

    If you want a third choice, my girls enjoy seeing the animals at Animal Kingdom.  They have also loved doing the petting zoo there, as well as watching Festival of the Lion King.

    Have a wonderful first time visit with you little boy!
