    I will be traveling with a 6,4,and a 3 yr od, all boys, and my husband. I have to pick 3 of the following: Islands of adventure, Universal studios, animal kingdom, epcot, disney hollywood studios, magic kingdom, or sea world. I need all the help I can get


    Of course you can consider me a bit partial to Disney parks, so don't be surprised that I pick from those four. But I also pick them because I consider those non-Disney parks as better choices for older kids, like teenagers, due to the number of rollercoasters.

    Certainly start with the Magic Kingdom. After that I would say that you choose based on the following;

    a. Any Playhouse Disney fans? Fans of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, and Little Einsteins will love Hollywood Studios.
    b. Any animal lovers? Then Animal Kingdom is a must pick for them.
    c. If any of the boys are ga-ga over Nemo, then Epcot is a good choice.

    These are some guidelines for picking a park based on a particular interest. If there is nothing compelling here, then without knowing the boys better, I would say you go to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. Leave the other parks for the next trip.

    If you want to tell me some of the boys particular interests (i.e. favorite characters), I would be glad to adjust my recommendations based on that info. Just go to my bio page to ask.

    Have a magical vacation!
