    Going with my 4 year old in Jan 2016. We've been on DCL twice and she loved it. We will be down for 5 days at parks. Which do your recommend? Only Magic Kingdom? Also, we are staying on site, which one do you recommend is best for kids?

    Hi Rosa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to hEAR you are planning to take your little daughter to the Walt Disney World Resort. I am sure she will have an amazing time!
    I would start with Magic Kingdom Park, the best one for her age range. A breathtaking place! There are many attractions for her, beautiful parades and “meet and greet” opportunities with many Disney characters and princesses. I suggest you consider making an appointment for her at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a fantastic beauty salon, where girls are transformed into real princesses.
    Disney’s Hollywood Studios is my second choice for little kids. Park attractions are themed after Disney-Pixar movies and everyone’s favorite characters. Attractions and shows are so much fun. Shows like Disney Junior - Live on Stage and For the first time in Forever: A Frozen sing along are must-do’s.
    If she likes animals, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is also a great option. The place is beautiful, many animals and nature. There are some “must-do” attractions, such as Kilimanjaro Safaris and Finding Nemo – The Musical. My little daughter likes to spend some time playing at The Boneyard, a special play area for small kids. You can also consider a character dining experience at Tusker House Restaurant, where you can meet Donald Duck and some of his friends for photos and autographs.
    Regarding hotels, Disney offers great options but Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is my favorite for little ones. Rooms are beautiful, you will live the magic! They are nicely decorated and you can choose the theme of your preference - Finding Nemo, Cars, The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. There are family suites available, which can accommodate up to six people. Besides, you can relax by the largest resort pool at the WDW.
    Hope this information helps your planning. Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!
