    I have only three days to visit. There will be 6 total in our party - my husband and me, our 5 yr old son, our 16 yr old daughter, my mother, and my disabled uncle. Which three parks do you recommend so that we can get the maximun enjoyment for everyone?

    Hi Robbi,

    I know how difficult it can be to choose three Disney theme parks to visit from the four fabulous options they offer guests in Florida.  Based on the composition of your traveling party.  I would choose the following three parks:

    1. You simply have to visit the Magic Kingdom.  This park is classic Disney!  Everyone will love this park and your son will be enchanted with the attractions in Fantasyland in particular.  Make sure he visits Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Jungle Cruise.  He can get his picture taken with Mickey in Town Square Theater on Main Street U.S.A., too!  I took my son for his first trip to Walt Disney World when he was five and this was his favorite theme park.

    2.  Because I work with teenagers on a daily basis, I'm going to bet your teenage daughter is going to love the thrill rides at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and the Rock 'N Roller Coaster with Aerosmith are a must!  There are great shows here, like the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, that will appeal to everyone in the family.  Start your day by enjoying the ever-popular Toy Story Mania attraction.

    3.  Epcot will be a huge hit for the whole family, too.  Begin with Soarin' in the Land Pavilion of Future World.  Then enjoy whichever Future World attractions appeal to your group.  Wander the gorgeous pavilions of World Showcase in the afternoon. Your son can have fun at the Kidcot stations along the way.  Conclude your evening by viewing Illuminations.

    Wishing you and your family a truly magical vacation!
