    I have two daughters-ages 8 and 3. We will be goind a Disney Cruise in 11/12 and then 3 days at WDW. We can only do 3 parks - which would be best for these ages? Looking for the most bang for our buck but are not doing park-hopper.

    Hi Gail!

    You're going to have such an amazing time on your Disney Cruise and Walt Disney World holiday!

    For your girls ages, I'd recommend that you plan to visit Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios most definitely. Here your girls will get their fill of all the 'classic' Disney films, characters, attractions and of course, Princesses!

    Choosing the third park is a bit of a personal choice.
    I'd definitely lean more towards Animal Kingdom as it is a great, family park for all ages and appealing to all audiences. You're sure to have an enjoyable day together in this relaxing and beautiful, compactly laid-out park.

    If your family are very much "into" world travel and all things related to science, technology and the future - then you may find that Epcot is a great fit for your family too!

    Should you be planning an additional trip to Walt Disney World in the future, I'd say that you can always come back for Epcot when your children are a little bit older so that your younger daughter can fully enjoy it all.

    I hope you'll visit me again if I can be of further assistance to you in your decision making and planning.
    Wishing you a Magical time as you plan your wonderful, fall, family vacation Gail!
