    I just wanted to say Thank You to the Moms panel. I am going to WDW for the 1st time and apperciate all of the wonderful help and advice you give. I have a 5 yr boy. we have to skip 1 park wou;d you rec going to Epcot or AK coming March 4 -7

    Hello again, Shena!

    Well, we Moms (and Dads) on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel simply love helping Guests make the most out of their trips to Walt Disney World. We've "been there, done that" and want to help Guests avoid mistakes we made when we were novices. Truly, when helping you plan your upcoming trip to WDW, the pleasure is all ours. :-)

    Regarding skipping either Disney's Animal Kingdom Park or Epcot, that is a toughy, but it's one that has to be all of the time. I suggest that you think of your son's interests when deciding. If he loves animals or dinosaurs, then your decision has been made...skip Epcot. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park will fill your day, with attractions and shows that you simply won't find elsewhere.

    If, however, he's into space, astronauts, energy and food, then skip Animal Kingdom. At Epcot, there are hands-on activities and attractions that will connect with his curiosity; he won't even realize that he's learning as he's having a blast.

    Send more questions and information about your thoughts on the above. I'd love to help you choose. :-)
