    Hi! We are traveling to Disney for the first time with our three year old twins from April 9 to 16. Can you recommend which parks are most appropriate for their age group and which days? I am looking to take advantage of the extra magic hours?

    Hi Regina!

    Thanks for stopping by with such a great question! With just under two months to go until your vacation, I'm betting that you are starting to get so excited!

    I think it is fabulous that you will get to experience double the magic with your twins this vacation! Planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort with Little Ones is quite an adventure, and I'm sure that you will have many magical memories that will last a lifetime!

    All four of the Theme Parks are kid-friendly. Did you know that there are over 80 attractions and entertainment options to experience that do not have a height restriction? That means that no matter where you go, you will find plenty that the whole family can enjoy together.

    My two favorite Theme Parks for little ones are the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. In Magic Kingdom, nothing creates more giggles than Mad Tea Party and letting the kids run around in the Casey Jr. Splash' N' Soak area. We also love to take a spin on Prince Charming Regal Carousel. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Kilimanjaro Safaris is a family favorite. There is nothing like watching animals graze on the savannah. The kids love Festival of the Lion King and playing in The Boneyard. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park has the best animal watching I've ever seen, and it offers excellent educational opportunities for the kids!

    The best advice I have when deciding to choose the park you will visit is to do what works best with your family's schedule. If you are early risers, plan to visit the Theme Park that has morning Extra Magic Hours. I always advise keeping to your regular schedule as much as possible. If your children still nap, take them back and let them rest. It helps to avoid meltdowns from being tired. While you are there, don't forget to check out the Baby Care Centers.

    I hope that you have a fabulous time!
