    We are planning a trip to Disney World the first week of December with our son who will be 3 and a half at the time. We are doing 3 park days. 2 at MK. Would you suggest Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios for the second park considering his age?

    Hi there Lindsay!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I recently visited with my almost-3-year-old nephew, so I can easily tell you that you'd have a great time visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios with your son. There are some great Playhouse Disney and Disney Pixar attractions and shows that he is sure to enjoy. I'll outline a few of the "must-see" attractions you'll want to consider for your little guy!

    ~ Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure is a great, play area that your little guy will enjoy running around in
    ~ Muppet*Vision 3D is a fantastic show for all ages
    ~ Toy Story Midway Mania! is a fantastic attraction for Toy Story lovers of all ages

    Additionally, there is some great Entertainment at Hollywood Studios such as:
    ~ Disney Junior - Live on Stage!
    ~ Meet Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater near Streets of America for a great photo opportunity
    ~ Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show with an appearance by Lightning McQueen
    ~ Meet the Stars of Disney Junior at Animation Courtyard
    ~ Disney Junior Play 'n Dine featuring Disney Junior Characters at Hollywood & Vine (Breakfast and Lunch time - advance reservations are required by calling (407) WDW-DINE)

    My kids have both loved Animal Kingdom Park from a young age, however I think your little guy might find Hollywood Studios more 'entertaining' at his current age if you need to decide between the two.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Lindsay. If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to write me back. I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
