Which one should you attend?
This decision is a choice that will totally depend on what you are looking for in a theme park. It would be difficult to advise someone visiting one park over another without knowing what their idea of fun really is. Each has its own factors that attract visitors.
Busch Gardens is an excellent park with many exciting attractions and an abundance of animals throughout the park. If you like roller coasters and seeing animals, Busch Gardens is definitely the right place to go.
Magic Kingdom, on the other hand, is not full of emotions and never pretends to be.

Since they are located less than 90 minutes from each other, you can actually choose to attend both. It is your choice, your fun and your vacation.
