    I'm planning to bring my 5 year-old to Disney World in June. We arrive mid-afternoon. Which park would be the best choice for his introduction to Disney if we buy the after 3 p.m. Ticket?

    Hey, Ronald!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Wahoo! I am so excited for your trip in June because fun in the "place where dreams come true" is the best way to kick off the summer and your prince's first visit will be magical.

    My preference is always Magic Kingdom Park because of the food, attractions and fantasy. Where else can he fly with Dumbo and Peter Pan, dig with the Seven Dwarfs on a mine train, see a silly haunted mansion, get soaked at Chick-a-Pin Hill on Splash Mountain, help Buzz Lightyear defeat Zurg and see the most spectacular fireworks! My second choice for your son is Disney's Hollywood Studios. If Magic Kingdom Park closes early and you are staying on Disney property then look at the theme park that has the latest hours or evening Extra Magic Hours

    Please note: The After 3 p.m. Meeting/Convention Tickets are "only available to meeting & convention groups staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels or a group meeting in the Central Florida area." Here is the number to call to order your 3 p.m. Meeting/Convention Tickets - 407-566-5600.

    Disney Dad Tip 1: If you decide not to visit a theme park then check out, at no cost, Disney Springs and Disney's BoardWalk. There is great streetmosphere (entertainment), dining, shopping and fun for everyone.

    Disney Dad Tip 2: Stop by City Hall in Town Square, any Guest Relations location or at the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel for a "1st Time" button. Cast Members and Mickey Mouse love meeting new friends.

    Ronald, I hope you and your son enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort.
