    We are visiting WDW at the end of Jan.'19 with our 19 month old granddaughter. We were planning on visiting MK, HS, and AK. skipping Epcot. The Festival of Arts will be at Epcot. Should we now change our plans to include Epcot and delete AK or HS

    Hi Donna!

    Let me begin by saying that there are pixie-dusted experiences for Guests of all ages throughout each one of the magical parks at the Walt Disney World Resort, so no matter which parks you choose to visit, you really can't make a bad choice!

    The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is such a fun and unique experience that I would highly recommend attending, even if you only want to go for the food!  Although park hopping is a great way for you to enjoy some of the highlights of each of the four theme parks during your trip, if you have to choose one park per day, I agree that Magic Kingdom Park is a must-see!  Since you are traveling with a little one, my next choice would be Disney's Animal Kingdom.  With so many incredible and exotic creatures to see, it is great fun for kids and kids at heart, plus the whole park transforms once the sun goes down!  Because your granddaughter is so little, many of the attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios may be too thrilling for her, and she will probably not be tall enough to ride, so if I had to save one of the parks for my next visit, Disney's Hollywood Studios would be my choice.  Of course, if some of your family would like to enjoy the more thrilling attractions, there are plenty of incredible shows that I am sure she would love!

    Make sure you check out the full list of attractions for all of the parks and the Planning Guide for Preschoolers & Little Ones to help you make the best decisions for your family!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
