    What parks r best for a 7 year old and a 2 year old to go to?

    Hi there, Rhealyn! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Your Mouseketeers are around the same age as mine, so I'd love to share some of my thoughts about the theme parks at my happy place (a.k.a. Walt Disney World Resort). Let's get into it!

    Honestly, you can't go wrong at any of the theme parks and water parks. My sons' first visits were when they were each only a few weeks or months old, so there's no age that's too young or too old to visit. And now as an elementary schooler, my older son still can't get enough of the magic no matter where we're spending our days on property. 

    If I had to choose my top theme park for two little ones, it would be Magic Kingdom Park. It will give you and your kiddos a taste of the quintessential Disney magic. It's home to Cinderella Castle, iconic attractions like "it's a small world" and Pirates of the Caribbean, and there's no shortage of character meet-and-greets. No matter how you envision your vacation, you'll find something about Magic Kingdom Park that will fit your style. (And if there's an experience that your 2-year-old kiddo can't or doesn't want to participate in, use Rider Switch, which you can learn more about in my answer to another Disney-loving Guest.) 

    My sons' favorite theme park is Disney's Hollywood Studios because that's where you can find Toy Story Land. If your kiddos are huge Toy Story fans like mine, visiting this theme park is a must-do! And if you want to shrink down to the size of a toy while noshing yummy eats, there's a new in-park restaurant called Roundup Rodeo BBQ that my family enjoys. Do you have Star Wars fans among you? Then, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will definitely seal the deal on this theme park. 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is my personal favorite theme park, and it should be a contender for your family if you also love animals or nature. There are fun meet-and-greets with Moana and Kevin from Pixar's Up, some of the best character dining options like Tusker House Restaurant, and many opportunities to learn about our planet's cultures and wildlife. This theme park was actually my younger son's very first Disney park. 

    Now, EPCOT has gotten a reputation to be more for adults because of its year-round festivals. However, my kids love eating around the world and exploring the scavenger hunts and play areas. (By the way, all four theme parks have play areas, which is a great way to get those wiggles out.) Also, there is a large, indoor aquarium that some don't know about. There are so many fun activities and rides for the whole family there, and I think it's the theme park we visit the most. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: With a toddler in your party, it may seem like there's not much for them to do. But trust me, there are a lot of attractions, parades, and meet-and-greets for them to enjoy. Also, two major perks? Kiddos under the age of 3 get free entry into Disney parks, and they eat for free at all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants. 

    Rhealyn, I hope you and your kiddos have the BEST trip. You've got a ways to go before it's here, so please don't hesitate to revisit us here at planDisney if you have any other questions. I'm all ears! 

    Magic always,
