    First trip. we are staying 3 nights. 2 and 3 year old children. What parks should we see spend more time at Epcot or Animal Kingdom. 3 year old is crazy about the zoo at home. I am thinking about age limits on rides and how that will make or brake our trip

    Hi, there!

     You're going to have the best time at the Walt Disney World Resort this summer. Your little Mouseketeers will be grinning ear to ear with joy! I will never forget our sons' first visit. It was so magical!

     This is a tough question, Leslie. Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park are perfect for little ones, each in their own way! I'm happy to help you determine which is more deserving of your family's time. 

     My family loves Epcot! Both your kiddos can ride Frozen Ever After, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, Journey Into Imagination With Figment, Living with the Land and Spaceship Earth. Turtle Talk With Crush is so fun for everyone in the family, and my kids can spend hours exploring the SeaBase aquarium.  

     We are big fans of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Kilimanjaro Safaris is our favorite attraction, and perfect for all ages! Other attractions you can enjoy at this park without worrying about height restrictions include Na'vi River Journey, TriceraTop Spin and Wildlife Express Train. If your 3-year old is crazy about the zoo at home, I'm sure all the Animal Encounter experiences will be a huge hit! Don't forget about the incredible entertainment offerings too! 

     If you are choosing which park to allot more time for based on the number of attractions both your children can ride, Epcot is the winner. If you have an animal lover, though, and you want to prioritize experiences and entertainment, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park pulls ahead. I hope I've answered your question, Leslie.
      Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
