    I have 3 girls, 15, 14 & 8 and 1 boy 14. From Tampa so we have been to WDW several times. We have 3 park days. MK and DHS are set but we are torn on 3rd park. Which is recommneded for kids their age, EPCOT or AK?

    Hi Kevin,

    That's a tough choice since both Disney's Animal Kingdom and Epcot have some marvelous attractions that your teens and eight-year-old would enjoy.  However, unless you've got an animal lover in your family, I would suggest you spend that third theme park day in Epcot.  I bet your kids would love Soarin', Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth.  There are also a wider range of dining options in Epcot than in Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Consider making advance dining arrangements at a restaurant with cuisine your family has always wanted to sample.  Call (407) WDW-DINE to make your dining reservations.  This summer Epcot also has the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series and a new interactive game with Phineas and Ferb called Agent P's World Showcase Adventure.  Your children would are at a perfect age to enjoy this new experience.  So it looks like Epcot would be a great choice for your family.

    Have fun!
