    Best WDW theme parks for really young kids and teens?

    What are some really fun theme parks at WDW that can be enjoyed by teens and toddlers/babies (like 1-3 years old)? Any fun rides or restaurants or attractions we should check out?

    Magic Kingdom is the place for the little ones...definitely! There are lots of attractions they'll like. I'm sure another member who has kids (I don't) will tell you which ones their kids liked the best. I'm thinking Small World, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, and the new Fantasyland.

    There are some rides at MK the teens might like: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain...

    The teens should also like Disney's Hollywood Studios because of the thrill rides Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. While you're there, go on The Great Movie Ride, Star Tours, Muppets 3D, and Toy Story Mania.

    We were going to bring our 1 1/2 year old to Disney this year. Magic Kingdom and Epcot were our main choices. After a trip to our local theme park I think we are going to wit until he is 3-4 got take him to disney. As much as it kills me

    But I would have to say magic kingdom is your best bet. Lost of slower rides that the younger ones can enjoy

    Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom both are great for little and big kids my kids ds 18 dd11 dd5 all 3 love this park of we had to pick these would be the ones we would visit hollywood studios is smaller its ok but not as much to do and Epcot is more adult friendly! Magic kingdom is a park you could do for 2-3 days before seeing everything! Have a magical time planning!

    I was never into Epcot as a teen (I think I just squeaked in as a teen on our first visit).

    It was only more into adulthood that I develped a love for the place.

    Now you couldn't drag me away!!

    I'd suggest AK and DHS for teens. I think they may find Epcot a bit boring.

    Best park with best Rides For small children and children of all ages then mk is the easy answer. Then my list would continue on as HS, Epcot and then ak.

    MK for the kiddos, HS for the teens.

    AK and EPCOT are both fun, but EPCOT in it's current state is more entertaining for adults (thank goodness they added more meet and greets and the Kim Possible...er...Perry the Platypus Adventure, that made it a lot more kid friendly)

    AK is hot with a lot of walking, depending on when you go. My kid loved it each time, but after a half day she was done.

    It does seem hotter there for some reason! And I'm with your kid, a half day there is enough for me!
