Jenny's Family Vacation: The Finale!

Our last stops for Jenny's vacation will be Disney's Hollywood Studios and the Animal Kingdom.  

To me, both of these parks are hopper parks.  I've never spent a full day in either, though there definitely are must-sees/rides in both of them.  For now, I'll start with my personal preference for the two:

Animal Kingdom

- I should admit that Animal Kingdom, we were there for such a short period of time (it was SO hot), that I only nursed Noah once.  And, for that, I found the Baby Care Center.  Located across a bridge somewhere and behind a tree :)  I had to ask several cast members for directions!  The Baby Care Center was fabulous.  Free water, nice and air conditioned, and a great place to stay out of the heat for a little while!  I hid in a back room and glided peacefully!
- For little ones, like Tiger, there are many awesome attractions:

The Affection Section which is basically a petting zoo, and trails filled with animals to see.
It's Tough to be a Bug 3D show kept Noah's attention the entire time.
As for the rides, 

Everest will be a must for the parents (in my opinion!), but it has a single rider line, so no worries about the Rider Swap or fast pass!  44" minimum height
Dinosaur requires a mininum of 40"
Kali River Rapids  has a 38" minimum
Primeval Whirl has a 48" minimum - definitely a no-go for those boys!
The TriceraTop Spin has no height requirement, so perfect for both of the boys

As for nursing - I'd recommend the Baby Care Centers, one of the shows, or any comfortable bench.  Unlike some of the other parks, there are no rides I would feel comfortable nursing on - maybe the Kilimanjaro Safari, but then you might miss some of the animals!! And, it is very open to everyone around and I personally prefer a bit more solace while nursing!

as for

Disney's Hollywood Studios

There are several shows/rides to sit and relax for a nursing stop, with only the
Rock'n Roller Coaster
The Tower of Terror 
with height restrictions to worry about.  
Without looking, I can guarantee both are too tall for those little guys.

So, go, grab a fast pass for Toy Story Mania, and enjoy your visit!

Hopefully this has helped Jenny and anyone else traveling with little ones to the parks.
