    which park is more appropriate for a 6 yr old

    Hey, Leah May!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I went to the pros, my kids, for the answer to this question and resoundingly they choose Magic Kingdom Park. For your 6 year old prince or princess remember that adventure and magic are around every corner. They may not be able to ride all the action attractions but they will remember all the fun. Here is why we love Magic Kingdom Park so much.

    Where else can you see and dine in Cinderella Castle? Where else can you meet princesses, see parades and experience the most spectacular fireworks? Where else can you get a Dole Whip, Turkey leg and LeFou's Brew (non-alcoholic deliciousness).

    Here are some tips on what to do at Magic Kingdom Park and why with your tiny royalty. Please check this height requirement chart for your 6-year old.

    *Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as the “wildest ride in the wilderness”
    *Splash Mountain to sing Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah
    *Peter Pan’s Flight to soar over London
    *The Haunted Mansion and the 999 Happy Haunts
    •Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin because Buzz needs your help
    *Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to whistle while you sing Heigh Ho
    *Mad Tea Party to spin and spin
    *Dumbo the Flying Elephant because he can fly
    *Pirates of the Caribbean to find Captain Jack Sparrow
    *it's a small world for the voyage around the world

    Disney Dad Tip: See Mickey Mouse!

    Leah May, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort.
