    Visiting MK and AK with my sister and her two small boys (2 & 5 months). Dates we can go are 11/20/18 and 11/23/18. Both parks are a crowd level 9 on 11/23. Will a 9 feel different at MK than AK? Which park would be better to select on 11/23? Thanks!

    Hi Victoria,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Trips to the Walt Disney World Resort are fabulous with family!

    Given the possible holiday crowds, I would explore Disney's Animal Kingdom on November 23. The park is expansive with lots of green spaces. Although you have to take a quick expedition on Pandora - The World of Avatar, as long as you spend the majority of your time in the rest of the park, the crowds should be manageable. Be sure to make Fast Pass+ selections and advanced dining reservations.

    Even though the boys are young, I would also suggest that you try the Wilderness Explorers activities. Collect badges throughout the park as you complete different challenges. Even if you only do a few, I think the 2-year old would feel pretty important! On our last visit, our girls got their Wilderness Explorers Handbooks and they loved them.

    Victoria, there are a number of activities that I think your little ones will enjoy at Disney's Animal Kingdom. When our girls were younger, they enjoyed The Boneyard and The Festival of the Lion King show. The Boneyard is a hidden gem and the girls were just mesmerized by The Festival of the Lion King show. The music and acrobatics are amazing! Also, consider immersing yourself in the Na'vi experience at the Colors of Mo'ara face-painting kiosk.

    Victoria, I trust that you will have a fabulous adventure. As we say on Pandora, Sivako! Rise to the Challenge!
