What Disney park?Walt Disney World: Advice?
From Ryan SanfordHello! My brother and two friends are going to Orlando next week and plan to visit a Disney park. Our ages are 22, 22, 21 and 19. Out of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood studios, and Animal Kingdom, what would be the best park for our age group to visit? Any suggestions or comments would be very much appreciated. Thanks!!

From Tyler HarrisThis is a toughie. All 4 parks wood be a good experience, but Hollywood studios gives you the most bang for your buck on rides like Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania,etc..

From Anthony MurphyEPCOT if you like to eat and drink (sorry 19 year old).

Animal Kingdom is also a nice option. Its not overly "Disney" and I would say has the most attractions and shows that are well liked at any age. Plus Animals are cool
From Dominick DMagic Kingdom is the best option for rides, but if you like food go with Epcot. I don't think DHS and AK have enough to warrant $90 admission (and the Universal parks for that matter, but let's not turn this into a war).

The best way to avoid turning this into a war would have been to not mention Universal in the first place. By doing that, it sounds like you want one. The OP made no mention of Universal at all.
From Tyler HarrisI'm still going Hollywood here,but Epcot my second best.

From Bryce McGibenyWell, I would pick Magic Kingdom because its pretty much timeless. Then Hollywood Studios. And Universal would be great for you guys to visit too. Both of the parks have some great, thrilling attractions. It just depends on what you like really.

Magic kingdom if you want to do the classics
Epcot if you want to eat good food
DON'T EVEN BOTHER GOING TO ANIMAL KINGDOM
From Ryan SanfordThanks everyone! I really appreciate it :)

From sarah gWe forgot one very important detail. In that age group, do you like having some frosty adult beverages to accompany your day? EPCOT, all the way!!!

This is a very nice dilemma at have… First let me wish you a safe and fun trip.
All 4 Disney parks have something to offer… I personally like AK. This park has much to offer such as Everest, Bugs life, Dinosaur ride, River Rapids, Animal Shows, Safari ride, Primeval Whirl…
From Marie-Eve LandryI say: take the Park Hopper option and visit them all in one day. Start with AK (Dinosaur, Kilimandjaro Safari, Everest, Kali River), then go have lunch in Epcot (a lot of great food options + Soarin' and Test Track). Visit Hollywood Studios (best thrill rides) and finish with Magic Kingdom and the fireworks.
