You’re probably already excited about the Walt Disney World parks (and if you’re not get ready to get excited). We are gonna give you our take on why they are so darn exciting. What’s not to love? Roller coasters, shows, parades, fun and delicious food and so much more can be found at all of the Disney World parks.
There are four main theme parks at Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. They are all wonderful and have attractions that are fantastic for people of all ages, even a 40ish year old who transforms into a child while visiting any one of the Disney World parks.
Magic Kingdom is probably our favorite. It contains the most attractions that are sure to satisfy everyone.
While Magic Kingdom has the most attractions of all of the Disney World parks, it may not be the best for you if you’re seeking thrill rides. That title goes to Rockin’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror both of which are in Hollywood Studios.
Epcot has a showcase of the world. It was originally planned by Walt Disney himself. There are some really great attractions such as Soarin’ and some educational stuff too like Living with the Land. However, the real attraction for us at Epcot is the food.
Animal Kingdom is probably our oldest daughter, Kaelynn’s, favorite park. Kilimanjaro Safaris is always a crowd favorite. There are a lot of animals to see. Set your camera to action shot and you will get a lot of great pictures. We have almost always seen the lions there but it is no guarantee. You really want to try to hit this one as early in the morning as you can because that is when the animals are most active.
Another great attraction at Animal Kingdom is Maharajah Jungle Trek if you do not mind some walking. We really enjoy it and Kaelynn could spend all day on it.
There are two water parks at Disney World that are packed full of great water slides and other water fun: Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Both of them have everything from wild to mild slides, a lazy river and a lot of other great stuff. These water parks are open year round. They only close for inclement weather or if the outside temperature drops so low that the park water cannot be heated to a comfortable temperature.
April is crazy and loves sharks. At Typhoon Lagoon there is an attraction called Shark Reef where you can snorkel with real, live sharks! They also both have great lazy rivers as well as wave pools complete with kiddie areas that don’t get quite as much surf.
There is way too much for us to cover here on one webpage. Check back soon for more details and even some planning guides for your vacation.
