    We have a four year old boy. We are only there for a few days. Should we go to MGM? Animal Kingdom, or just do Magic Kingdom? Thanks

    Hi Lynne!!!

    I have a soon to be four year old and I definitely know which theme parks are his favorites.  If you have the Park Hopper Option on your tickets I would encourage you to spend time in each theme park as they each offer something cool, interactive, and unique for a four year old. 

    It is a definite that you have to go to the Magic Kingdom.  There is so much magic and excitement at the Magic Kingdom.  It is so much fun watching our son go into the park even though he has been there close to 10 trips. 

    Our son also loves Disney's Animal Kingdom.  We can usually get through the Animal Kingdom in just over a half a day.  There are so many cool animal encounters and exhibits there. 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly Disney-MGM Studios) has a few shows that our son loves!!  He loves going to Disney Junior: Live on Stage and seeing all the characters from his favorite Disney Junior shows.  His favorite on all of Walt Disney World Property is Fantasmic.  This is the nighttime spectacular that takes place in the evenings in the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater.  He loves the music and action of the show and we have to see it each time we visit Walt Disney World.

    Epcot has some of our son's favorite attractions.  He loves Soarin', Test Track, and The Seas with Nemo and Friends.  He is also starting to get interested in the different attractions/experiences in the Innoventions Pavilions. 

    As you can see, there is so much for a four year old to experience and enjoy at all four theme parks.  If you can fit them into your schedule I would highly recommend visiting all four theme parks!!  Your son will love each theme park in a different way!!

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!

    Have a magical day!!
