    Hello, I am looking into taking my 3 year old to Walt Disney. I was wondering what park would be better to take her too? She loves Minnie Mouse and Doc Mc Stuffins

    Hi Dominique!

    I've got good news for you - there are two Walt Disney World Resort theme parks where your little one can meet BOTH Minnie Mouse and Doc McStuffins!

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, Guests can visit with Doc McStuffins at Conservation Station. After a short train ride to Rafiki's Planet Watch, you can meet and greet with Doc, learn more about animals, their habitats, and veterinary care, and visit the Affection Section where you can visit with friendly animals at an open-air petting zoo. Minnie Mouse greets guests daily at Adventurers Outpost on Discovery Island.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios also has meet-and-greet opportunities with both of her favorites. You can visit Doc in Animation Courtyard, and Minnie on Commissary Lane, in her "Red Carpet Dreams" meet and greet. Also at Hollywood Studios are two character dining experiences you might want to check out. Doc McStuffins and other Disney Junior characters host a buffet breakfast each day at Hollywood and Vine - Disney Junior Play 'n Dine. In the same venue, you can also enjoy Minnie's Seasonal Dining, offered at lunch and dinner, with seasonal themes and visits from Minnie and her friends.

    If you're able to book one of the character meals, I'd suggest visiting Hollywood Studios with your daughter. After June 30th, you'd also be able to enjoy Toy Story Land, a new "toy-riffic" addition to the park! Animal Kingdom would also be great, especially if your daughter enjoys The Lion King or Finding Nemo, as the park features live, Broadway-style shows showcasing each of the two beloved Disney films. I don't see a wrong choice between the two parks - they're both magical!

    I hope this helps with your planning! - Diane W.
