    Hi! I am planning our family's first Disney world trip for my daughter's 5th birthday. I also have 3yo son. Between Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, which park would you guys recommend for my young children?

    Hi there Kendra,

    How exciting to be celebrating your daughter's 5th birthday during your first Walt Disney World vacation!  As a mom of four children myself, I highly recommend Magic Kingdom Park for your 3 and 5-year-old.  You will be amazed at just how many attractions your little ones will be able to experience at the iconic park. I suggest starting your day in Fantasyland and then touring the park by "lands" in order to maximize your time and decrease the amount of unnecessary walking. Be sure to watch Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and Happily Ever After, a nighttime, fireworks spectacular. 

    You can pick up a 'Happy Birthday" celebration button for your daughter at your Disney Resort hotel or Guest Relations at the park. Consider ordering a Mickey Mouse celebration cake for your daughter. Follow the link provided to learn more.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out again. Best wishes for a magical first trip, Kendra!

    Happy Celebrating,
