    With only three days at Disney, would you recommend Hollywood Studios or an extra day at Magic Kingdom. I have an 8 and a 6 year old girl?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Sue!

    While I'd love to spend every day at Disney World, you can still have an amazing time in 3 days! I'm not sure if you're already planning to spend 2 days at the Magic Kingdom and looking for an option for the 3rd day or if you plan to do Magic Kingdom 1 day, another park 1 day and looking at Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios for the 3rd day so I'll address both ways.

    If you plan to do Magic Kingdom 1 day, another park 1 day and looking at Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios for the 3rd day, I'd honestly play it by ear. There is so much to do at the Magic Kingdom for girls those ages and its truly hard to see it all in one day so I always recommend at least 2 full days at the Magic Kingdom.

    If you are already spending 2 days at the Magic Kingdom, I'd go to Hollywood Studios on the 3rd day. Here are some attractions I think they would really enjoy at those ages:

    * Disney Junior - Live on Stage!
    * Muppet*Vision 3D
    * Beauty & The Beast - Live on Stage
    * Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood & Vine (Characters from Disney Junior appear at breakfast & lunch)
    * Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure (great playground to burn off some energy)
    * Toy Story Midway Mania!
    * Voyage of the Little Mermaid
    * Jedi Training Academy
    * Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show
    * Fantasmic!

    There are lots of character meet & greets that kids know and love (i.e., Lightning McQueen, Incredibles, Disney Junior characters like Jake from Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Sully & more).

    Please feel free to visit with all of your questions. We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
