    My husband, daughter(6) and I are traveling to WDW in April! I am trying to determine the best park for a one-day ticket. Torn between Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Would you please share a few recommendations? Thank you!

    Hello Katy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    You must be very excited for your upcoming visit! Even if you can only spend one day at the Walt Disney World Resort we need to make sure that it is absolutely magical.

    Deciding which theme park to visit when you do not have time for all four is very difficult. To me they are all unique and special, and while I absolutely love Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, if I were to listen to my 8-year-old daughter she would choose Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This theme park is home to Toy Story Land, where you will find two of my daughter’s favorite attractions, Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Mania. Besides playing big in Andy’s backyard and feeling just like one of his toys, she can also visit a galaxy far, far away in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, train to become a Jedi in Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, hear a tale as old as time once again in Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage, sing her favorite Frozen songs at the top of her lungs in For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, and enjoy several entertainment offers. In addition, you will be among the first Guests to experience Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, a new attraction coming to the park on March 04, 2020. Stay after nightfall to marvel at Fantasmic! – the perfect grand finale to your magical day.

    Moms Panel tip: for a one of a kind experience, make dining reservations at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, my daughter’s favorite dining destination at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Thank you for stopping by once again. I hope this helps you plan a magical visit.

    See ya real soon!
