    what is the best park (AK or HS) other than Magic Kingdom to visit with 2 and 4 year old?

    HI Michelle!
    Magic Kingdom is a wonderful place for anyone but especially magical for children.  Your children are at the best age to experience this! You will have so much fun! I would recommend visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom if you must only choose one other theme park to attend.  It is one of my favorites, and my children love walking around and exploring the beauty and nature that is all around them.  Be sure to visit the Kids Discovery Clubs located in different areas in the park.  These hands on interactive activity centers teach kids of all ages about science and the animals.  The Tree of LIfe is a 14 story tree with over 300 animals carved into the bark.  We love identifying all the animals! At Camp Minnie- Mickey, your children will have fun greeting Minnie Mouse and her friends so bring your autograph books and camera to capture these magical moments.  I would recommend getting Fast Passes for the Kilimanjaro Safari as this is very popular, and it is hard to wait in long line with small children. Conservation Station is a hidden gem in the Animal Kingdom.  You board the Wildlife Express to the station and will learn about the habitats of animals and is a wonderful place to slow down and relax.  The Flights of Wonder show is a live bird show that my girls love to see.  Finally, make sure you visit DinoLand U.S.A. TriceraTop Spin will be so much fun for your kids and is similar to Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride that was at the Magic Kingdom.  Once done there, head to The Boneyard and be prepared to spend hours there as your kids excavate a dinosaur and play on the playground area.  As you can see, Animal Kingdom has so much to do.  Have a great vacation.
