    We are making a quick 3 1/2 day visit in August with our 2, 4 and 6 year olds. We usually visit all four parks, but with our trip being shorter than usual, I feel like we need 2 days to do MK so we need to cut one park out. Which do you suggest we skip?

    Hi Heather,

    This is a really tough question as I love all four Theme Parks for their unique attractions and story-telling abilities, but I understand your desire to spend two days at Magic Kingdom. I think that's a great plan and with the ages of your children, you'll easily fill two days especially while exploring New Fantasyland.

    Because Disney's Animal Kingdom offers several shows and attractions for all ages, and for the Disney Junior - Live on Stage! draw towards Disney's Hollywood Studios, my vote would be to eliminate Epcot from your 3-day itinerary. Epcot is LARGE and will likely tire little ones quicker than the other Parks. 

    My suggestion would be to check out the Disney site on my link provided, and sort the attractions by Park, and then by Age Interest. The link will help you determine which Park will interest your family best. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Heather, and please do visit me again with any other planning questions.
