    My husband and I are planning our very first trip to WDW the week of Thanksgiving. We will be traveling with are two daughters ages 4 and 2. My question is, which parks would be best to visit? We will probably have 3 days to visit parks,

    Hi Kim:

    I have two boys who have been going to Walt Disney World since they were infants. If you have three days to visit the Parks, I would make certain to visit Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  With the third day, I would either revisit Magic Kingdom or take in Hollywood Stuios, While we have fun at all of the four theme parks, the one park we never can go wrong with to satisfy both of my childrens' tastes is Magic Kingdom. The Park is big, consisting of several different themed sections. It's hard to run out of things to do at Magic Kingdom. If I had to skip one Park due to time constraints, it would likely be Animal Kingdom. While Animal Kingdom is fun for all ages, my feeling is that Animal Kingdom's attractions appeal to either older or younger Guests, with less of a more universal appeal to a mix of ages.  Of course you know your family best, and if you feel they would appreciate the animals at Animal Kingdom, then I would consider swapping out Hollywood Studios for Animal Kingdom.

    Enjoy your vacation.
