    I'm planning 1st trip with kids(5,4,15 mo) for 4 days. What parks should we do? I thought we might skip HS so we can do 2 d @ MK, 1 d @ E, and 1 d @ AK. Is HS worth seeing? Could it be done same day as AK if needs be or should we do 1 day @ each park?


    I definitely think Hollywood Studios is worth seeing, and you could conceivably visit at least some of the park on the day you also visit Animal Kingdom or Epcot.  The question then becomes 'How much do you really want to see this park?'  If you skip one of the parks then you could save a good bit of money by just buying base tickets rather than park hoppers.  

    If you're going to skip a park, I would bypass either Epcot or Hollywood Studios.  Not that they aren't amazing places to visit because they definitely are, but they will hold fewer activities for your preschoolers than Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom.

    Honestly I would still visit the Magic Kingdom for 2 days, even if it means forgoing a visit to another park.  Your children will LOVE the Magic Kingdom, and it by far offers the most rides and attractions for their ages.  It would also be a great place to begin and end your trip, with visits to the other parks sandwiched in between. 

    Enjoy that first visit with your little ones!  It's so magical, and they are at a wonderful age to take it all in.
