    Hi, We wanted to go to Orlando in late December. I have twin girls who will be 8 by that time. What are the best parks that you would recommend for that age group. We wanted a maximum of 3. They have also been to Disneyland. Thank you for your help!

    Hi Jane,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited to greet a fellow mother of twin girls who is also a mom from North Carolina!

    Since we love all four parks, I will suggest some experiences that your girls might enjoy at each park and then you can decide based on their interests. At Magic Kingdom, they could ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain. When we go to Epcot, our girls have to ride Mission Space, Test Track and Soarin'. Once we hit Disney's Hollywood Studios, our girls love Toy Story Mania!, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours - The Adventures Continue. And, at Disney's Animal Kingdom, we are super excited to visit in July so that we can experience Pandora - The World of Avatar. 

    Our girls have a bit of a thrill-seeking streak, so they also had to do Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple on prior visits. They stared down Darth Vader and the Seventh Sister Inquisitor while deftly wielding light sabers to claim victory for the Rebellion. Of course, what Jedi training day would be complete without a Princess reunion at night? After visiting with their princess friends in Princess Fairytale Hall, our girls adore dining at Cinderella's Royal Table.  

    Everyone has to visit Magic Kingdom - it is the quintessential Disney experience. Since Pandora - The World of Avatar is new at Disney's Animal Kingdom; I suggest you not miss it. Ultimately, you will have to choose between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. 

    Jane, I am sending pixie dust as you plan!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
