    Hi, I'm soo excited about our first big family vacation to Disney in July! We'll be arriving Friday and checking in at 4pm. Would you suggest Epcot, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom for that evening? I have a 2, 4, and 11yr old daughter.

    Hi Julia!

     I get soo excited when I hear of first time family vacations to Walt Disney World! Yay!

     Just as a personal preference, I would go to Epcot that first afternoon. There's something so breathtaking about seeing Illuminations that first night and setting the tone for the rest of the family's magical vacation! There are also so many different options for great for eating, and that's one of the things my family looks forward to the most when we plan our visits. I have younger children, and my oldest son, around the same age as your middle child, loves Epcot and says it's his favorite park. He loves to see the sting rays (and really everything in the Seas with Nemo and Friends area) over by the Turtle Talk with Crush attraction.

     I hope this helps. Feel free to come back to the Moms Panel if you have any more questions!
