    Traveling to Orlando with an 8 month old and have only one or two days to visit Disneyworld. I definitely want to go to Magic Kingdom. If I was able to make it one more day what park would you suggest?

    Hi Ellen!

    I think you made a great choice with picking the Magic Kingdom if you only have one day in Walt Disney World.  The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of Walt Disney World and, in fact, of the entire theme park industry.  It's definitely a "must do".

    If you have another day, I would highly recommend visiting Epcot.  Epcot is a one of kind park, combining element of a World Fair with an international bazaar.  You may have heard that Epcot isn't the best park to visit with young guests, which might be true (especially if talking about the World Showcase part of Epcot), but you will be fine with an 8 month old.  In fact, it gives you a chance to experience everything Epcot has to offer before your child grows up to be a pre-schooler and be bored with shopping and dining in World Showcase. 

    Epcot is the favorite park of many guests.  It's my wife's favorite park and my second favorite (after the Magic Kingdom).  If you have one more day in Disney, I definitely think it's worth a visit!

    Have a magical visit to Walt Disney World and write back if you have any  more questions!
