    Planning 1st trip in October, have 3 kids (13, 9, & 5). Been told that the kids won't enjoy Epcot or HS??? I know they will like MK and AK. Just wondering if I should go to the other 2 parks and/or how much time to allot for each. Thanks:)

    Hello Melinda!

    YEAH...FIRST TRIP!!!!!  I promise your family is going to have the MOST MAGICAL time!

    If you were to poll my five kids and ask them what Disney Theme Parks they like the best, Magic Kindgom would be number one, and Hollywood Studios would be a close second!  My kids absolutely LOVE Hollywood Studios.  If your oldest two children love thrill rides, they will LOVE Rock 'n' Rollercoaster and Tower of Terror.  Hollywood Studios has incredible shows for the whole family like Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, and the brand new show Disney Junior - Live on Stage!  AND, Hollywood Studios has the BEST attraction for the whole family, Toy Story Mania!  I really could go on and on about how much fun your children will have at Hollywood Studios.

    EPCOT has some really great attractions, including Soarin' and Test Track for the older kids and The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Journey Into Imagination with Figment for your five year old. 

    For my family, our Disney Theme Park Schedule looks something like this:

    Day One - Magic Kingdom
    Day Two - Hollywood Studios
    Day Three - EPCOT
    Day Four - Animal Kingdom
    Day Five - Hollywood Studios
    Day Six - Magic Kingdom

    I hope this helps in your planning!  If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
