    What are must-do attractions and shows at Animal Kingdom for 4 and 6 year olds? Thank you so very much!

    Hi Mary!

    Without a doubt, you should do the Kilimanjaro Safari, which is the signature attraction at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  You should also do Finding Nemo - The Musical and Festival of the Lion King.  If your children enjoy going to zoos, then I think you should also do the Maharajah Jungle Trek and the Pangani Trail; both are walking trails where you get to see exotic animals, including tigers and gorillas.  My children enjoyed the Chester and Hester's Dino-Rama area in the park, especially the fair games.  However, both of my children would say the number one attraction for children of that age is the Boneyard, which is a dinosaur playground for preschoolers and grade school age kids; it's a "must do" without a doubt.

    Be careful with It's Tough to be a Bug and Dinosaur.  Both are pretty scary, especially for younger children.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
