The Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Every Age Group

Best Theme Parks by Age Group - PinterestWhen you're spending and saving for the vacation of your dreams, you want to know that every dime is going toward the best possible experience for your family. The wonderful thing about Orlando is that there are many incredible theme parks to enjoy. For the most part, all of the parks offer something for every age group, but some parks may be better suited for your frog squad's particular ages than others. If you're searching for the best Disney World park for your toddler or the overall best Orlando theme park for adults, we're hoppy to help!

Before we dive into the best theme parks in Orlando by age group, let's be clear: This isn't the definitive guide — there are always exceptions! The best Orlando theme park for your kids, parents and/or partner is the one that they want to visit. And the best way to help them decide is to get them involved in the process. For the tadpoles, see what looks fun. Show them videos of attractions from our YouTube channel. Also, consider what they're currently interested in or obsessed with. Do they like Star Wars? The best Disney World park for them might be Disney's Hollywood Studios, especially with Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Watched "Frozen 2" too many times on Disney+? Head to EPCOT to see Anna and Elsa in their "Frozen 2"-themed outfits! Can't get enough of "Despicable Me" and the minions? You're off to Universal Studios Florida. Penguins and dolphins? Sea ya at SeaWorld Orlando. Regardless of the age category your tadpoles fall into, give serious consideration to what they are interested in.

For the adults, consider their interests and what will bring them the most joy out of the vacation. Meeting characters and going for a spin on rides isn't for every grown-up — but watching the tadpoles or grand tadpoles (granpoles?) meet their favorite characters just might be the best thing ever. The best theme parks in Orlando cater to adults and seniors. And the atmosphere of a wonderfully themed land or park can be just enough "magic" for those who don't need thrills.

Best Theme Parks in Orlando by Age Group

Best Theme Parks in Orlando - Tree of Life

If you can, our recommendation is to visit each of the parks at least once and then pick your favorites to revisit. That said, here are our choices for the best Orlando theme parks by age group.

Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Toddlers (Ages 4 and Under)

Best: Magic Kingdom

Hands down, Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom offers the most magical experience of all of the Orlando theme parks. Guests of all ages, but especially the toddler set, will be able to enjoy a large number of attractions. They can also meet their favorite Disney characters and wonder at the sights and sounds in each of the different lands. For children who are easily scared, there are plenty of rides where they can sit with Mom or Dad. Start them off with Peter Pan's Flight and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

Best Theme Parks in Orlando - Goofy Cavalcade

Character meet-and-greets can be like a dream come true for the toddler age group. The variety of Disney characters hanging out in Magic Kingdom is great. Currently, individual character greetings are unavailable due to social distancing measures. However, you can still see your favorite characters marching through the park in cavalcades or occasionally popping up at random locations from a distance. Whether your tadpole is a Mickey Mouse admirer (Mickey's regular meet-and-greet is typically at Town Square Theater) or one of Buzz Lightyear's Junior Space Rangers, you're quite likely to find their favorite Disney character somewhere! All of this leads us to rank Magic Kingdom as the best Disney park for the little ones.

Other Good Orlando Theme Parks for Toddlers:

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park — This park is ideal for anyone who loves animals. Toddlers especially will enjoy seeing them up close in a lush, jungle-like setting. Tortoises, lions, cotton-top tamarin monkeys, yellow-naped Amazon parrots and more are just some of the animals that you can see! Pint-sized shows such as "It's Tough to Be a Bug," the fan-favorite "Festival of the Lion King" and the temporarily unavailable "Finding Nemo - The Musical" are also perfect for the wee set. The fun AND educational environment makes this one of our best Disney parks for toddlers.
  • SeaWorld Orlando — Like Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the animals truly are the focus of the park. The little ones will love feeding the sea lions and dolphins. The experience of a stingray gliding beneath their fingertips is a treasure they'll enjoy. Sesame Street Land made its debut in 2019, giving toddlers a chance to explore the beloved neighborhood with its interactive elements and family-friendly rides.

Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Elementary-Age Kids (Ages 5 to 10)

Best: SeaWorld Orlando

Who says learning isn't fun? Out of all the Orlando theme parks, SeaWorld Orlando is one of the most educational. Kids of all ages, but especially young children, can test their knowledge of aquatic life. They can also explore the exhibits and get up close and personal with baby dolphins, sea lions and stingrays. The younger end of this group will also love Sesame Street Land and its interactive elements! Be sure to also check out Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. Kids (and kids at heart) should not miss the penguin habitat, which mimics the icy conditions of the South Pole. Get up close with the penguins in temps of 30 degrees. You can see four species on land and underwater. (Currently, the ride is not operating, but the animal exhibit is open.)

Other Good Orlando Theme Parks for Elementary-Age Kids:

Best Theme Parks in Orlando - Legoland Florida, MINILAND USA

  • LEGOLAND Florida — The whole park is geared toward 2 to 12-year-olds. For LEGO fanatics, the themed lands are second to none! Adventurous kids can experience the thrill of the Flying School roller coaster. Those who aren't quite ready have gentler ride options such as The Dragon. The water park within the park will keep everyone cool on the hottest summer days. It became even more "awesome" with the addition of LEGO MOVIE World in 2019.
  • Magic Kingdom — This is the place where fairytales come true, and princesses and pirates will love the opportunities to indulge in a little make-believe and maybe work up the nerve to try out Space Mountain or Splash Mountain. Great starter coaster options are Big Thunder Mountain Railroad or The Barnstormer.

Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Tweens (Ages 11 to 13)

Best: Universal Studios Florida

Best Theme Parks by Age Group - Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studios Florida

With more simulator rides than thrill rides, and many based on movie franchises, Universal Studios Florida offers a lot to do and see. Of course, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley should be at the top of the list, and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is not to be missed! The bravest of tweens can tackle Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit coaster, which reaches speeds of up to 65 mph! Revenge of the Mummy is slightly tamer, but offers plenty of scream-worthy moments. TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D is thrilling 3D technology at its best as Autobots attempt to protect the AllSpark from Decepticons.

Other Good Orlando Theme Parks for Tweens:

  • SeaWorld Orlando — Daredevil tweens will love the thrill rides, especially MakoJourney to Atlantis, Kraken and Manta. Soon, they will be able to tackle Ice Breaker, the park's first multi-launch coaster. As frogs, we think the animal encounters are also pretty awesome ;)

Best Theme Parks by Age - Manta

Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Teens (Ages 14 to 18)

Best: Universal's Islands of Adventure

Best Theme Park by Age Group - Family in Masks

Teens will love the high number of true thrill rides, including the Incredible Hulk CoasterHagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and Jurassic World VelociCoaster! Harry Potter fans will feel like they just stepped into the books at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade. Even those who aren't fans will be mesmerized by the incredible attention to detail! Journeying on the Hogwarts Express - Hogsmeade is an entertaining and awesome ride for park hoppers wanting to venture over to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley! Of course, no visit here is complete without Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey inside Hogwarts Castle.

Other Good Orlando Theme Parks for Teens:

  • EPCOT — Teens will love traveling the world in a single day, sampling the cultures — plus eating, shopping ... and eating! (Did we mention eating? There are plenty of options to satisfy your growing teen's hunger!) EPCOT offers some of the most diverse entertainment options out of the major Orlando theme parks. Test Track Presented by Chevrolet and Soarin’ Around the World remain perennial favorites and make this park a must-visit.
  • Magic Kingdom — While parents and teens rarely agree, they seem to share the same nostalgia for visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a roller coaster the whole family can enjoy together, and the Haunted Mansion is a supernatural adventure. While it may not have the major thrills of some of the other Orlando parks, you can't deny the joyful feelings it brings, which is why we rank it as the overall best Disney World theme park!

Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Adults

Best: EPCOT

Best Theme Parks by Age Group - EPCOT Food and Wine

The most non-traditional park out of all the Orlando theme parks, EPCOT offers the chance to experience many of the world's cultures through sight, sound and taste. Shopaholics (raises hand) will love strolling through the World Showcase shops. EPCOT is the only place in the U.S. where some of these items can be found! There are plenty of diverse food and beverage options to be explored, as well.

Other Good Theme Parks for Adults:

Best Theme Parks in Orlando for Seniors

Best: SeaWorld Orlando

This pristine park is known for its fantastic shows, particularly Sea Lion and Otter Spotlight and Dolphin Adventures. Seniors will enjoy the animal encounters, the 360-degree view of Orlando from Sky Tower (which is also temporarily closed), experiencing the life of a turtle at TurtleTrek and the numerous places to cool off.

Other Good Theme Parks for Seniors:

  • EPCOT — World Showcase offers the chance to shop, eat and drink in the history and architecture of 11 countries. You can take your time hopping from pavilion to pavilion without having to walk far distances at a time.
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios — This park provides a trip back in time through Hollywood's Golden Era. The 50s Prime Time Cafe is a nostalgic eating experience in a sitcom setting. Or, dine like a Hollywood icon at The Hollywood Brown Derby.

Whew! This was a long list, but now you've got the lowdown on what we think are the best Orlando parks by age group. Now, it's your turn. Tell us which are your favorites, for each age group or overall!

Two boys 8 and 9, want to go to seaworld.. what is more to be recommended? We went to magic kingdom & legoland years ago. Not want to go again.

Hi Marijn!

It toadally depends on your kids' interests, but aside from SeaWorld Orlando, we'd suggest Universal Orlando or some of the other Disney World parks (Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT). Universal has the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Hogsmeade & Hogwarts), a Marvel Super Hero land and a Jurassic Park land in Islands of Adventure, while Universal Studios Florida has Minions, Transformers and the Wizarding World (Diagon Alley). Depending on thrill level comfort, we'd suggest Universal Studios Florida (has more simulator rides) over Islands of Adventure (has bigger thrill rides). If they're animal lovers, we'd definitely recommend Animal Kingdom. And if they enjoy Star Wars or Pixar movies (especially Toy Story), then we'd suggest Hollywood Studios. EPCOT is debuting a new Ratatouille ride and a new fireworks show on Oct. 1, if you're interested in either. It would also still be warm enough for any of the water parks in Orlando (Disney's Blizzard Beach, Universal's Volcano Bay or SeaWorld's Aquatica).

Hoppy planning!

I love Epcot but it’s very Eurocentric. Almost all the pavilions are either North American or European. There’s absolutely nothing from Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, South America, or the Pacific Islands. As a person of color I feel very left out at that park

My 11 year old son and I will be visiting Jun 4, 2021. He is sooooo excited. He loves trains, cars, and video games. which park do you recommend?

He is a thrill seeker. I would like to be able to ride on some rides with him, but will need a must tamer ride. Any suggestions? Where to buy tickets?

Reply
May 21, 2021 at 2:28 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Brenda!

The first park that came to mind was Universal Studios Florida. It has Fast & Furious — Supercharged, which would be a great ride for anyone who loves cars. Many of the rides at Universal Studios are simulators, so you almost feel like you're part of a video game (minus being in control). He would also love Men in Black: Alien Attack, which is an interactive shooting ride! As for thrill rides, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and Revenge of the Mummy are both roller coasters (the former is more intense), but as long as you're OK with the simulator rides, you would probably be able to ride most of them. If you get a Park-to-Park ticket, then you could also ride the Hogwarts Express between Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure. You can purchase discounted tickets directly from us!

Hoppy planning!

Thanks for this summary!

A friend and I (both in our 30s) are headed to Florida for a week at the end of July and trying to decide what park to do for one day. My initial thought was Epcot but after reading various sites I'm a little concerned about construction and lack of entertainment because of covid. I also looked into Animal Kingdom and even Busch Gardens because it's closer to where we are staying. Thoughts (especially about the Epcot experience with construction/decreased shows)?

Reply
May 20, 2021 at 8:38 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Brian,

Thanks for hopping by! While we also agree that EPCOT's construction and lack of entertainment has affected the park since it reopened, we think by the time you visit in July, things could be different. EPCOT's International Food and Wine Festival is starting July 15, and although we don't have exact details about this year's event yet, we took note that this is the first time that a festival doesn't have a modified name ("A Taste of ... "), so we could see more entertainment potentially returning. The new flagship store is also supposed to be opening this summer (though we don't know exactly when), and that would relieve some of the construction in the front of the park.

However, you also can't go wrong with either Animal Kingdom or Busch Gardens. If you and your friend especially like thrill rides (we love all of the roller coasters there!), then Busch Gardens may be the better fit. If not, Animal Kingdom has a good variety of rides, plus animal exhibits and entertainment (The Festival of the Lion King just returned!).

Hoppy planning!

Hi John!

Disney's Animal Kingdom and EPCOT both have absolutely stunning scenery and a wide variety of gentler rides. Disney's rides tend to be the tamest, and Universal's a little more thrilling; if you are big Harry Potter fans, it may be worth doing a one-day park-to-park ticket to be able to ride the Hogwarts Express and see both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. Have a great time!

Hoppy planning!

Reply
Mar 22, 2021 at 4:59 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Liz,

For your little ones, we'd suggest Magic Kingdom, as it has the largest variety of rides & attractions available for that age group. As for the second park, we feel it depends on your grandsons' interests! If they like animals, we'd suggest Disney's Animal Kingdom or SeaWorld Orlando. If they're into Star Wars or any of the Disney Pixar films, then Disney's Hollywood Studios may be a good option. If you have enough time and they enjoy LEGO, then consider making a trip out to Legoland Florida, which is toadally awesome for that age group. Hope this helps with narrowing it down a little!

Hoppy planning!

Hi my grandson is 2yrs old going on 5 if you know what I mean....LOL.... and is very much into the incredibles, cars (McQueen & Mater), Pixar and we want to know what park do you recommend for his age group. Will there be much to do for a 15 year old as well as adults that will pretty much sight see.

Reply
Mar 16, 2021 at 1:04 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Rachel,

Because he loves Pixar, we'd highly recommend either Hollywood Studios or Magic Kingdom. If rides are your biggest priority, Magic Kingdom will have more rides that he can go on, due to height restrictions (Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin would be a must-do!). But we'd recommend Hollywood Studios as an overall pick, which has Toy Story Land (he could ride Toy Story Mania!), Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy and a Pixar character motorcade. Hollywood Studios also has thrilling rides for the 15-year-old, such as Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, and plenty of sights to see for the adults (Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge alone is a big area to explore)! Hope this helps!

Hi! Planning after Christmas trip to Orlanda, FL. Family of 5 and wanting to do 2 or 3 days at the Parks. Disney and Universal but not sure which Parks within to do for our kids ages. This will be surpise for them so I want to make sure we make a good choice! All boys, ages 12, 9, and 4. What would your recommend for our trip? Do we park hop? Do we include everyone on every park or not? We already have lodging set and a ride to and from the Parks via grandparents who will also be willing to keep little one back if we wanted to just go with the older kids for a day.

Reply
Mar 16, 2021 at 1:45 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi there!

That's so exciting! We'll be sure to keep it a secret from them :)

While you really can't make any bad choices, our initial reaction is that they'd enjoy either of the Universal parks or Disney's Hollywood Studios. It depends on their interests too - if they like animals, consider Disney's Animal Kingdom as well. Hollywood Studios is action-packed, and has Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, as well as some "big kid" rides they can test out (Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster), but it also has options for the 4-year-old (Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, Toy Story Mania!). Meanwhile, Universal has the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Super Hero Island and Jurassic Park lands. The Universal parks would be easier to park hop since they're right next to each other (and likewise, it's easier to park hop between Disney parks). However, we wouldn't recommend park hopping between Disney and Universal in a day though, as that may take too much time. All of the parks have something for every age, so you don't need to leave anyone out! Consider using rider switch in case the little one doesn't want to ride something.

Hoppy planning!

Hi, my name is Breanna. My family and I have never been to Walt Disney's World. We would like to go towards the end of the month. My husband has trouble walking because he has a bad back. I was wondering if you had a way to help him get around better. Also I have 4 children (1-8 years old) to small for rides and my oldest would not go on a ride without me. We all love star wars and marvel. We are big Disney movie fans. Do you have strollers. Do you have double strollers. We are Florida residents and we see plenty of sea life already. My children are big fans of Pixar so anything related. Big fans of legos. We would like pictures that are done sent to us at the end of are trip so we don't have to take the photos are selves. Need a cheap resort with pool and complimentary breakfast. we would prefer best bang for are buck because we are not rich by any means. What are good dining experiences for children? For a family not so fast paste how many days long do you recommend to really take it all in. Thank you

Reply
Mar 12, 2021 at 10:02 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Breanna!

How exciting! Most of the Orlando theme parks offer stroller, wheelchair and ECV rentals — so there's options for both the kiddos and your husband! Do note that these are first come, first served, so it may be worth looking into some off-site rental companies if you think you'd benefit from having the stroller, wheelchair or ECV with you, including at the hotel. All parks also offer disability services that can provide alternative ways to wait in queues for those who may have issues standing in a traditional queue. No matter where you visit, we recommend dropping by Guest Relations to see if what options are available to you. Since your kiddos aren't quite old enough to ride alone, make sure to look into Child Swap options! There are a few rides that can seat three in a row, so between you and your husband, you'd be able to all get on and ride at the same time :) If you can swing it, we'd recommend at least 5 days at Disney - one for each park, and one day to hang at the resort. If you're doing more than just Disney (which it sounds like is the plan!), we'd plan for at least a week to explore, and we'd instead try for Park Hoppers at Disney to pack more into fewer days. Hope this helps - have a great trip! :)

Hi Sejal,

Universal Studios Florida is a great option for your children's age groups! If either of them are Harry Potter fans, we'd recommend hopping to Universal's Islands of Adventure too. Overall though, it really comes down to their interests! If they love animals, check out Disney's Animal Kingdom or SeaWorld Orlando. Any Star Wars fans? Disney's Hollywood Studios would be a must-do. If you want a nostalgic Disney experience, Magic Kingdom has all of the classic attractions to ride and Disney characters to meet. Let us know if you need any more help narrowing it down.

Hi. I am hopin to take a 4 day trip to Orlando in March. I have twin 5, almost 6 year olds. I was looking to do two parks. Which do you recommend? I definitly want Magic Kingdom but am torn on the other. My biggest concern is the wait. They are impatient and do not want to ruin the magic with overly long waits and not getting to see/do much due to wait times.

Reply
Feb 5, 2021 at 9:52 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Dani!

How do they feel about animals? Animal Kingdom is a great pick around that age group, and there are a fair amount of animal experiences that don't have traditional lines. Since they are walk-through experiences, it also helps to get some of the wiggles out :) That said, there are still a fair amount of rides available for them to enjoy! As far as the Disney Parks go, Animal Kingdom is generally the most manageable in terms of wait times too. Hope this helps!

I’m taking two of my nephews on a one day visit and am not sure which park to go to. The oldest is 10- into marvel, lego, video games, typical 10 yr old. The younger is 3 and into Mickey Mouse, sharks, dinosaurs, trucks, incredibles. Also brining 3 other adults so we want everyone to be able to enjoy the day. Having a hard time figuring our what will be good for the 3yr old but still interest the 10 yr old.

Hey Elizabeth!

Disney's Hollywood Studios would be a great pick for the both of them! While Marvel doesn't have a strong presence in that particular park, Star Wars and Toy Story should have enough to keep your older nephew's attention, while still offering lots for the younger :) In the character cavalcades, your younger nephew would get to see Mickey and the Incredibles! Plus there's the new Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway to hop aboard. There's a good mix of attractions for all ages - including some thrills! Hope this helps!

Hi Arianna!

If you have Marvel and Frozen fans, we'd shoot for Disney! Magic Kingdom will hold the most to do for those age groups, including many princesses and some adventures for your youngest tadpole (though Anna and Elsa live in EPCOT's Norway pavilion, and Hollywood Studios offers a Frozen Sing-Along). Hollywood Studios would be another good pick, with Toy Story Land and Star Wars! We'll let others in the Frog Pond weigh in, as well, but let us know if you have any other questions :) Have a great time!

Hi Lora,

It really comes down to what your daughter's interests are! Since she is 9 years old, some of our favorites for that age group are Magic Kingdom, SeaWorld Orlando and LEGOLAND Florida. If she loves princesses and classic Disney characters, Magic Kingdom is a must-do. If she loves animals, Disney's Animal Kingdom Park and SeaWorld Orlando both have lots of special animal encounters and exhibits. Is she a Harry Potter fan? Either (or both) of the Universal Orlando parks would provide an immersive experience at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If she's ready to tackle a few thrill rides (or is a fan of Star Wars or Toy Story), Disney's Hollywood Studios is a good place to start. We know it's a hard choice, so let us know if you need any more help to narrow it down!

How fun! In our opinion, each of the parks have something special to offer for all age groups and are worth visiting more than once. We would definitely allocate more than one day to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios :) Have a great time!

Hoppy planning!

We just spent day two of 3 days at Disney. We thought with the current travel scare, it being a week day and school still in session, it would be a light week. Boy how wrong we were. We also didn't know you needed to get your Fast Pass tickets in advace... like days or weeks in advance for any popular ride. All the lines were 60 to 180 minutes EACH. Day 1 was Epcot. Sorin was an hour wait and was just ok. The food was awesome at every location. Day 2 was Animal Kingdom and Aviatar was a 2 hour wait and the two water rides were over 90 minutes. That's all we had time for. And the dinner at their premier restaurant Tiffins was below average at best. Tomorrow we are suppose to go to Hollywood Studios but We may just skip it. The lines are way too long and people that wait to plan their vacation can't get fast track passes. We would have been better off getting season tickets to Universal with a daily fast track ticket.... it would have been less expensive, better time spent enjoying the park and I know the food would have been better.

Hi Elle!

What are they interested in? We think Universal would be a great pick, and from there, we'd opt for one of the Disney Parks depending on their interests. Disney's Animal Kingdom blends animals (similar to a zoo) with some thrill rides, including the world of Pandora. Disney's Hollywood Studios has a brand-new attraction opening at the beginning of March, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, and also hosts Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, as well as some other thrill rides. If they are looking for more of the classic Disney experience, Magic Kingdom is always a good pick. Hope this helps - have a wonderful trip!

Hi Amy!

We'll let the Frog Pond weigh in on houses! But as far as parks to visit, it'll really depend on the group's interests! We love Universal Orlando Resort from a thrills perspective (as well as Harry Potter!). Each of the Disney Parks bring something unique to the table, from the animals at Animal Kingdom, to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, to a trip around the world at Epcot, to the magic of fairy tales at Magic Kingdom ... there's something for everyone! We offer discounted tickets to all of these parks, which you can find here. Have a great trip!

Hi Suma!

All of the Disney Parks have some non-coaster rides available, but we'd definitely suggest Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, since they'll have the most to choose from. We'd allot one day each to each park. Universal is a good pick, as well, if you have Harry Potter fans! We'd recommend a 2 day park-to-park ticket there. Staying on-site at Disney is toadally feasible (and offers great perks!) Since it's farther away from Universal, you'd just need to plan to either rent a car or hop in an Uber for those days (or switch resorts!). You can check out all of our available deals here. Since it's the busiest time of the year, we'd definitely suggest buying your tickets in advance (especially because then you can get a hop on your FastPass+ reservations!) Have a great trip!

Hoppy planning!

Hi Manesh!

We'd definitely suggest at least a 2-day park-to-park ticket for Universal Orlando Resort so that you can ride the Hogwarts Express between parks for your Harry Potter-lovers :) Other than that, any of the Disney Parks are great for that age group - if they are Star Wars fans, Disney's Hollywood Studios would be a good stop to visit Galaxy's Edge. Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom are also great picks for tadpoles :) Have a great time!

Hi Courtney!

If they are into Harry Potter, we'd suggest 2 days for Universal Orlando Resort (preferably park-to-park so you can take the Hogwarts Express!) They'll also have larger coasters for the kiddos to enjoy. Disney's Hollywood Studios is also a great pick if they are into Star Wars for a visit to Galaxy's Edge. Have a wonderful time!

How many parks are you hoping to visit? We'd suggest Universal Orlando if they are big Harry Potter fans!

Disney's Animal Kingdom is another great one for animal-lovers! Hope you have a wonderful trip!

Hi Jan!

Both Universal parks are great. If you are roller coaster fans, SeaWorld Orlando has Mako, Kraken and Manta. And of course, Disney is also a great pick! Since it'll be busy during that time, we'd suggest hopping to Epcot for the Festival of the Holidays or Galaxy's Edge if you have Star Wars fans. Have a great time!

Hi there!

This is a tough one; if you are Harry Potter fans, we'd definitely suggest heading to Universal Orlando. We'd suggest a park-to-park ticket if possible (and if not, Islands of Adventure). From there, we'd recommend Hollywood Studios if you're Star Wars Fans to visit Galaxy's Edge, and either Magic Kingdom (for the classic experience, plus a fully decorated park - just keep an eye out for early closures for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!) or Epcot for the Festival of the Holidays. Crowds will be high for Christmas, so we highly suggest planning ahead for your FastPass reservations, and springing for Express Passes at Universal if you can.

Reply
Sep 23, 2019 at 4:01 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Opie!

If they’re flying in/out of MCO, then Universal is a bit closer to the airport than Disney. If you're staying at a Disney World Resort hotel, you could also utilize the Magical Express at a value resort, which would be within your budget (All-Star Movies, All-Star Sports, All-Star Music and Pop Century). You'd also then have access to free transportation during your stay, with the exception being your trip over to Universal.

Surfside Inn and Suites over at Universal is also a value resort that fits within your budget, and is the resort's newest property! Some options between the two parks would include Disney Springs hotels. You can also search for hotels on our site using the map function on our site and sort by price if none of these fit the bill! We're sure others in the Frog Pond will have some suggestions, as well :) Have a great trip!

Try Scootaround mobility scooter rentals I am going in Oct also and have rented from them and I believe they're pretty reasonable for the week or you can just rent for a few days. They will deliver to your hotel if in their area. Hope this helps I am 58 and can no longer walk very far or long. If you are on a Disney property you can ride right on the buses and they also are portable units you can take apart to put in cars if you're driving. Some other hotels we were looking at that say they have a free shuttle to the parks may not be accessible to ride on and you would have to take the scooter apart to get on it. Hope this helps.

Hi there!

We highly recommend an ECV rental! We've done it with Grandma Frog, who is in a similar situation - long lines and walking long distances just aren't feasible for her. Every park offers some sort of ECV rental, and you can then park at any rides you'd like to hop on. It also gives you a seating option anywhere you go (for parades, fireworks, etc.). This worked like a dream for Grandma Frog! We found it REALLY useful and highly recommend! The only downside is that you may pick up some tadpole hitchhikers ;)

We are not big on big coaster but will do small ones. Trying to figure out which 2 or three parks to visit. We will definitely do Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom but can’t decide on the third one.... if we should do a third one at all. I’m also looking for the most economical way to do all three.

Reply
Jul 3, 2019 at 1:07 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Yukita!

We'd recommend Hollywood Studios as your third park. You'll get to enjoy Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Land with the whole gang and Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Rollercoaster for your bigger tadpoles. If you have some Star Wars fans, you'll be able to see Galaxy's Edge from Slinky Dog, and you can take a ride on Star Tours! From a cost perspective, a Base Ticket will be your best bet. Hollywood Studios can be a half day park, which leaves you with a couple of options. If you think your fam will enjoy hitting either Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom a second time, you can use your entire third day at one of those parks. Or, you can use a half day at Hollywood Studios and use the rest of your day to see some of the resorts, hang by the pool, or hit Disney Springs. Have a frogtastic time!

Hi RP,

It really depends on what they're into! If they like animals, we'd recommend a visit to Animal Kingdom. Hollywood Studios has a few thrill rides, but if they like Disney Junior Pals, Star Wars or Toy Story, they may still enjoy Jedi training, Toy Story Mania!, Alien Swirling Saucers and meeting the characters there. Epcot has a few family friendly rides, as well. We have discounted hotel prices that you can find here.

I’m not an expert by any means and I don’t mean to be a negative Nancy. I just want to give you a heads up so you have the best vacation possible and this is only my opinion and to each his own. My family and I went to MK for the 1st time 6 years ago (daughter 3, son 9). I was so excited and I literally cried out of frustration and disappointment (btw not a crier),lol. It was the worst, we were so disappointed and miserable. Even the ice cream cart pushers that wear big goofy gloves looked sad and depressed. A true waste of a day there, Everything just fell flat. Disney commercials are completely misleading. (1)There are no Disney characters/princesses frolicking around giving hugs to happy little tadpoles, you have to wait in a line for EVERYONE. (2) (I’m still peeved at this one) you can NOT even go into the castle, oh there’s a little princess salon, but the entrance is blocked with a painted mural. (3)three different occasions we waited (for a long time) at the stage for a character show and every single time they were cancelled due to a “storm” that was 5-10 MILES AWAY, with not a single cloud in the sky anywhere near the park. (4) no great rides, more for little kids (unless they have updated). It’s going to be hot as heck, so bring fans and frozen water bottles. If you want thrill, head to Universal Adventures. Animal kingdom is awesome for Animals,atmosphere, shows and a few of the rides, it’s hands down our favorite place to visit. Again, sorry about being negative, I just don’t want others to be blind sided like we were

My girls are 7 and 5 and don't huge rollercoaster fans, so not sure if that factors in...

Thank you SO much for your advice!

Hi Kara!

Epcot is a great park for tadpoles! You can meet Anna and Elsa, Baymax, Joy and Sadness, visit the aquarium (as well as riding along with Nemo) and ride Frozen Ever After. We'd allot more time here to explore. Hollywood Studios is wonderful, but if your girls aren't into thrills, there may not be as much available to them. There's Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, Star Tours, and of course, the new Toy Story rides! We'd hit Hollywood Studios first and aim for a FastPass for Slinky if you think the girls will be into it, wait for Alien Swirling Saucers, then hop over to Epcot depending on their interests. We'd estimate about two hours at Hollywood Studios if this is the plan, then longer at Epcot (we've found this can really vary depending on what fun we find :) ) The Epcot fireworks show is coming to an end soon, and is pretty well-loved; the new projection show at Hollywood Studios does not include fireworks, but is neat as well. We are sure others in the Frog Pond will weigh in, as well. Have a frogtastic trip!

We love all of the Disney Parks, so it'll just depend on what you'd like to do. There are lots of fun restaurants (and drinks) at both Epcot and Animal Kingdom (though Animal Kingdom will have more rides for adults than Epcot). Magic Kingdom has many magical rides, but you won't find the same dining options (or alcoholic beverages) and there will certainly be more tadpoles there than at the other parks.

Hi Jo!

Magic Kingdom has plenty for all ages, including attractions like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Depending on which rides they're interested in, it might be worth getting a park hopper for the day so that they're able to bounce around to the different parks! Hollywood Studios, of course, has Tower of Terror and a lot of fun Star Wars features right now; Animal Kingdom has Expedition Everest, Pandora and some fun animal-watching; and Epcot, while they aren't interested, does have a lot of fun options for adults in terms of food and beverages :) I'd take a look at which rides they'd like to prioritize and plan from there.

Magic Kingdom would be a great choice, where your youngest tadpole can enjoy all of the meet-and-greets and magic geared towards the younger crowd, while your older froggies can hit some of the coasters, such as Big Thunder Mountain or Space Mountain. I'm sure other families in the Frog Pond can weigh in on their favorites, as well :)

Hoppy planning!

I'm looking at taking a couple of days for myself and my 11-yr-old son. I'm on a very tight budget, so we can't do all parks. What is the best for a boy his age that doesn't like big rides?
