    We will be spending 2 days at Disney World this summer with our 6 year old son and trying to decide which parks to visit. We would like to do 2 parks. We've been to Animal Kingdom a few times already and MK once. Thanks!

    Considering you've already experienced Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom, Julia, I'd recommend Epcot and Hollywood Studios for this visit.  I know full well that many people consider Epcot to be an "adult" park, but I disagree wholeheartedly.  There are plenty of attractions at Epcot the younger crowd will enjoy, including: Soarin', Turtle Talk with Crush, and The Seas with Nemo and Friends.  My five-year-old son also enjoys visiting the Kidcot Stations all around the World Showcase.  Oh!  And then there's Innoventions.  Really.  There are a plethora of discoveries to be made at Epcot.

    At Hollywood Studios, your son will likely fall in love with Toy Story Mania.  After our first visit there my son came home asking if we could give him that attraction for his birthday (as in, build a replica in our backyard!).  If your son is into cars, you should check out Lights, Motors, Action!  And don't leave without seeing Fantasmic!

    If you take in the two parks you've yet to explore, you'll certainly come away wondering how on Earth Disney packs so much excitement in each and every one of their amazing theme parks.  Have a great trip!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
