    I have one more day to choose a park...it's between Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studiios. My hubby and I are traveling with our 2 children...5 and almost 3. Which park should we choose? Please advise.

    Hi Angela,

    Both the Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios have many attractions that appeal to preschoolers. Choosing which to visit really depends on the interests of your children. If your kids like princesses, shows, or the various Disney channels, I'd choose Hollywood Studios. If your kids like animals, I'd choose the Animal Kingdom. I'll list some of the attractions at each park that they could participate in, and you can decide which makes most sense for your family.

    Animal Kingdom

    - Finding Nemo show
    - Festival of the Lion King show
    - Kilimanjaro Safari
    - character greetings
    - wild animal exploration trails
    - Affection Section petting zoo
    - The Boneyard dinosaur dig play area
    - jungle-themed parade

    Disney's Hollywood Studios

    - Beauty and the Beast show
    - Little Mermaid show
    - Toy Story Mania
    - Disney Junior Live on Stage
    - character greetings
    - Pixar themed parade
    - auto stunt show
    - Indiana Jones show
    - Disney Channel Rocks show

    As a possible solution, you may also want to consider getting a Park Hopper ticket which would allow you to spend half a day at each of these parks.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
