    My girlfriend and I are going to Disney World this summer. We have time to go to two parks. She selected Animal Kingdom and I have to choose the other. I'm stuck between Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Which do you think would be best for two 20 year-olds?

    Hi Jeffrey!

    I recommend going to Epcot over Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Both are excellent theme parks, but Epcot is one of a kind!  You wont' find another park like it anywhere else in the world.  Epcot is divided into two parts:  Future World and World Showcase.  World Showcase is like a permanent world's fair with 11 countries represented.  Be sure to make an Advanced Dining Reservation at one of the Table Service Restaurants in World Showcase.  My personal favorite is Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion, but I think the most romantic is Bistro de Paris in the France Pavilion. 

    However, if you nor your girlfriend have ever been to Walt Disney World before, then I really recommend that one of the parks be the Magic Kingdom.  The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and thus the crown jewel of the entire theme park industry.  It should not be missed.  The Magic Kingdom has a reputation as being a park for young children, and while the Magic Kingdom is the best park for young children, there are plenty of attractions for guests of all ages!  It's my personal favorite theme park.

    Enjoy planning your magical vacation and write back if you have any questions!
