    Hi, we are travelling for the 1st time to WDW and have to decide on ONLY 3 PARKS. Our son is 4, which park would you skip? I'm thinking Epcot, but my husband disagrees. Please give us some insight.

    Hi Erika!
    This is a tough decision! Start by taking everyone's interests into account. I would skip the theme park which has the least amount of entertainment or attractions that interest the family.
    A lot of people see Epcot as an adult theme park, but my kids (4 and 7) love it. My daughter was 3 years old the first time she experienced one of her favorite activities at Epcot, the Kidcot Fun Spots, where kids create souvenir crafts while they discover each country. There are some attractions at Epcot they never want to miss like Turtle Talk with Crush, The Seas with Nemo & Friends and the Gran Fiesta Tour at the Mexico Pavilion. There are many wonderful meet-n'-greet opportunities at Epcot with characters like Mulan, Donald, Chip n' Dale and Aladdin around World Showcase. We also love Character Spot where Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald and Goofy are ready for pictures and autographs.
    A great way to decide is to look at the attractions and entertainment at each theme park and make a "must see" list for each family member. This way, it will be easier to decide which theme park to skip.
    Hope this helps and have a magical vacation!
