Full Day Touring Guide For Kids

The Disney-MGM Studios is a great place for people of all ages, but bringing younger children is somewhat more difficult. Younger children tend to be afaird of loud noises or being in the dark. This tour guide aims at helping those who bring young ones to the Studios to have a great time. This guide assumes you will do anything to keep your child happy and will revolve the day around him or her.

Tips to keep in mind throughout your day

Working in the shows will be your most difficult task so check the showtimes when you enter the park and always keep them in mind and feel free to stray off the touring plan to work in a show as it's much easier to go back to an attraction later than it is to see a show. Typically the earlier the show in the day, the better
We don't need to tell you kids need rest and a good afternoon break is a smart idea. Even an hour off their feet will do wonders
Ideally when you return in the afternoon you will see the parade and then have your kids go on Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Play Area. A smart idea is to see the parade near Star Tours on the Star Tours side of the parade route (as opposed to the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular side) and that way you can make a quick exit to get to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.
