    can you tell me which parks are offering the extra hours for guests staying in disney for the week of april 15-21..I am staying off-site and heard to avoid them! can you give me an idea of which parks to do that week? 12 and 6 yr old.not big on coasters?

    Hi Janet!

    To see which parks are offering Extra Magic Hours, go to the main Walt Disney World website.  Then click on "Parks" at the top of the page; then click on "Park Hours" on the right side of the new page.  Then go to the date you are interested in and scroll down to see the park hours for all of the theme parks and water parks; Extra Magic Hours will be clearly marked.

    I think all of the parks at Walt Disney World should be visited if you have the time.  I have two boys, ages 12 and 7, and they absolutely love all of the parks and the water parks.  My oldest son's favorite park is Disney's Animal Kingdom, followed by Epcot.  My youngest son's favorite park is the Magic Kingdom, followed by Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios (I get a different answer out of him every time I ask).  There are not a lot of coasters at Walt Disney World and the coasters that are there are relatively tame.  Most of the attractions at Walt Disney World were designed with the entire family in mind!

    I hope this helps in your planning.  Write back with more questions!
