    I will be visiting Disney the first week in October with my 2 year old daughter and her 5 year old girl cousin. What theme parks do you suggest we attend for the two days we are there?


    Because you have little ones, I'd resist the urge to get a Park Hopper pass and try to see everything.   So that leaves us with choosing two of the four parks:

    • Magic Kingdom is a must (and I'm sure you've already got that in the back ofyour mind!)  You'll spend most of your time at Fantasyland and Mickey's Toontown, but don't miss out on pint-size favorites like the Jungle Cruise, Buzz Lightyear and Indy Cars.
    • Epcot:  I'd probably save this for a later visit.  Although it sports attractions my 4-year-old loves, like Turtle Talk and Soarin', it's vast and you've got two other better choices in Animal Kingdom and Disney Studios.
    • Animal Kingdom: If your kidos like animals and the outdoors, this is the park for you.  Don't miss the Kilamanjaro Safaris and the animal trails that follow.  I enjoy Animal Kingdom for its Broadway-caliber shows like Lion King and Nemo, but if the children are wigglers, you might be better suited for...
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios:  If you're children are familiar with Pixar movies like Cars or characters like the Muppets, this might be the best place to land.  Shows like Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid may appeal more to the girls than those at Animal Kingdom., and it has one of the best parades with characters my little ones recognize from the movies!   It gets my vote!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
