    Hi there! My husband son and I will b visiting Disney World for the first time in May. My son will be just 3 months shy of being 4 at the time. What are the best parks/and or activities for a 4 year old? Water parks too? Should we do park hopper?

    Hi Miranda!
    I think the two BEST parks for your son are Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios. However, that said, I really believe that each park has at least a few attractions for every age group now more than ever. Thus, both EPCOT and Animal Kingdom should be included in your touring itinerary if you are staying for enough days.
    I think that a "hopper" would make sense in your case because if there is a park that is not capturing your son's fancy (which I find hard to believe, but it happens), you can always head to another one.
    As for water parks, my girls and I liek Blizzard Beach WAY better than Typhoon Lagoon, although either one is fine for rejuvenating tired little (and big) legs after a few days of walking.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical trip!! :)
