    Traveling Sept. 22-28, 2012. We purchased the 4 day MYW tickets. We want to visit Magic Kingdom twice and have decided to visit Hollywood Studios. Which park is best for boys ages 6 and 2, Epcot or Animal Kingdom, for the other park that we visit?

    Hi April,

    My choice for younger boys would be the Animal Kingdom. The Kilimanjaro Safari is a must-do. It's like being on a real African safari with stunning views of zebras, giraffes, lions, and dozens of other majestic creatures. There are two shows at the AK with big kid appeal: the Finding Nemo and Lion King Musicals. There are also walking tours of animals, bird behavior demonstrations at Flights of Wonder, and one of the best petting zoos around at Conservation Station.

    By contrast, younger kids don't have much to do at Epcot other than the Journey to Imagination and Living Seas rides.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
