    Hi Ashley, thanks again! Glad to know your kids are the same age as ours:) Beside Fantasyland, which part of MK would you recommend for their age? Any QS/TS restaurants suggestions? How's Blizzard Beach, TyphoonLagoon or Disney Quest for age 2&4? Tha

    Hello again!

    There is definitely something for little ones in each section of Magic Kingdom Park.  

    Adventureland is one of our favorite areas.  There you'll find The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin.  In Tommorrowland, definitely check out Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover.  Tom Sawyer's Island in Frontierland is a great place to go to let the kids run wild for a little bit.  And there are plenty of shaded spots for mom and dad to sit and relax in!  Depending on your children, the Haunted Mansion in Liberty Square can also be fun.  My children have both loved "The ghost house" (as my daughter affectionate calls it) on each of our vacations.  

    Our favorite Quick-Service dining location in MK is Columbia Harbor House in Liberty Square.  If you visit during the "off" lunch times (either dining early or later), it's quiet with plenty of seating.  We also enjoy the healthier meal options offered at CHH.  The lobster roll is delicious, too!  For Table Service, we prefer Liberty Tree Tavern.  Lunch is served ala carte, while dinners are served family-style.  

    As far as choosing between Disney's Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach Water Parks and DisneyQuest, my choice would be TL.  We find TL to be better suited to the little ones.  BB is a ton of fun, but we prefer the lush landscaping and overall theme of TL.  There are definitely areas suited for smaller kids at both water parks!   We are saving DisneyQuest for a trip when they are a little bit older.  

    Thanks so much for coming to see me again, Jessica!  Hope to see you again real soon.
