    Which one would it be out of Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom?

    When we go for 8 days, 1 of those is set aside for Sea World, 2 for The Magic Kingdom (it's the all round favourite and will need 2 days for us to do everything we want to do) and 1 for Epcot as it's mine and DH's favourite park. As we have bought 4 day tickets, that leaves only 1 day left to visit a WDW park with 2 to choose from.

    I realise your replies will be personal to you and your preferences but it's so close between the two parks for us, that it could well come down to whichever one gets the most votes here!

    Thank you!!!!

    Do you have the park hopper option, if so you could it both. :D But if not, I would definitely go for DHS.

    I've chosen Hollywood Studios as we love it.

    We had to cut our day at Animal Kingdom short as it was sooooooo hot there with not a lot of shade.

    The kids (and us) were suffering with headaches so we thought it best to leave which was a shame as we didn't get to enjoy all it had to offer, but with the boys feeling so bad it was the best thing to do at the time.....:(

    Would enjoy it more in cooler weather :yes:

    It is a personal decision to be sure, but I'd drop DHS. I love Animal Kingdom and would hate to miss it. There is the new EE too! :yes:

    Gotta say it would have to be DHS. I love AK, just make sure we get there early so we can do most things before the heat gets too bad :thumbs_up:

    I would drop the Studios as well, although it would be a hard decision, but I love AK too much. :)

    Can you park hop? If so, I'd do AK until about2pm then scoot over to DHS then you could see Fantasmic (if it is showing that night!)

    If no park hopping then it is a no brainer for me....AK would win every time :p015:

    I had to vote for AK even though it is my favourite park after HS. The one park I dont like (nor do my kids) is MK, so for us we would always leave that one out. We are even staying at Coronado so that we are neatly sandwiched between MGM and AK. As you say choices are personal. I hope you manage to sort out what suits you.

    I couldn't miss AK!
    Could you go to AK on opening, stay for a few hours and then go over to DHS?

    SNAP! This is exactly what happened to us when we went in 2003. We lasted 2 hrs before we had to leave because of the heat. I see this as even more reason to choose it this time where as DH see it as a reason to avoid it. :confused:

    d'ya know what - I would wait until you are there and see how it grabs you on the day - they are both very different in what they have to offer and it may depend on your fatigue levels at the time


    :lol: that was no use at all was it

    Actually this makes a lot of sense. Sometimes I wonder why I feel I need to have each day's itinerary decided and cast in stone before we board the plane. Maybe a more 'suck it and see' attitude is needed!

    Thats how we plan it Claire - always seems less stressful that way

    'Oh but today was our EPCOT day you can't be tired' - after saying this once I realised it was a holiday we were on not boot camp

    Again, this is like picking a favorite child. If it's hot, then I would skip AK though. It can truly be miserable there in the heat.
