    we will be going to the parks for 2 days. We aren’t sure which park to visit besides the Magic Kingdom. We are torn between Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Our kids are 1 and 3. Which park offers more for their age group to enjoy?

    Hi Laci,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When our little guy was the age of your little ones, we enjoyed each of the Walt Disney World theme parks and have lots of memories we cherish from those visits. The parades and character experiences were especially fun for him at those ages. One suggestion is to check out the Online Planning Videos because they help you get a great feel for how to build an itinerary that best fits your family — and they're fun to watch! You'll get an overview of all the magic that awaits you in each of the parks.

    I always feel a visit to Magic Kingdom is a must-do for a Walt Disney World vacation, so I'm happy to hear it's in your plans. And I can definitely understand feeling torn between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom. If you're limited to 2 theme park days, and if you're looking at full park days rather than the Park Hopper Option, I would personally plan on Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom. I think you'll find Disney's Animal Kingdom offers attractions and character experiences and entertainment that your little adventurers will enjoy. We have so many favorites, including Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo - The Musical, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and all the wildlife adventures and animal encounters.

    Laci, here's wishing you a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
