    We are planning a trip to WDW in May with our 4 year old son. Which parks are geared more for his age and how many days should we allow at each one. I'm not planning on going to the water parks because he does not like the water.

    Hello Cari!!!

    All four Disney Theme Parks have some incredible attractions and shows that your four year old would love!!!  However, based on my family's Disney Vacation experiences, I would say Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios are more geared toward families with small children!!

    Magic Kingdom has the attractions and shows your son will recognize from all of the Disney classics like Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh.  Hollywood Studios has incredible shows like Playhouse Junior - Live On Stage! and attractions like Toy Story Mania! that I KNOW your whole family will enjoy!!!  These two parks also have the BEST parades!!!

    I would spend two days at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, and one day at EPCOT and Animal Kingdom.  This schedule continues to make the Disney MAGIC for my family every year!!!

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

    Have a MAGICAL day!
