    We are planing our first trip to Disney in a few weeks. I have a 4 year old son, and Im worried that he wont be that interested in HS. Will there be enough at HS to keep him interested? Thanks,

    Howdy Sarah! I currently have a 4 year old son as well and over our last few trips, Disney's Hollywood Studios has become his favorite theme park at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Recently, my junior Jedi knight participated in Jedi Training Academy. He and the others in the academy used The Force and conquered the Dark Side. He is rather tiny in stature but walked around the remainder of the day like he was 10 feet tall!!

    Other attractions your son might enjoy include: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, Toy Story Midway Mania! (MUST DO), Disney Junior - Live on Stage!, Fantasmic! (amazing show but can be a bit intense for little ones), Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Character meet and greets including Buzz and Woody, Mike and Sulley, The Incredibles, Phineas and Ferb, the cast of Cars and some of his favorite Disney Junior stars.

    While I love spontaneous adventures, if you want to experience Jedi Training Academy and Toy Story Midway Mania!, you will need to get to the theme park early and/or plan your day accordingly with FastPass+.

    When we visit, we like to begin the day with a Character Buffet at Hollywood and Vine.  The food is fantastic.  It's one of my favorite buffets at Walt Disney World.  While you are enjoying your breakfast, you will have the opportunity to meet some of his favorite Disney Junior friends.  We always plan an early breakfast which gives us access to the attractions when the theme park opens.

    There is so much for your son to do and enjoy while at Disney's Hollywood Studios!  I know he will love his time there!! 

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information as your plan your Walt Disney World vacation!  Have a magical day!
