    what is the best theme park for children under 5

    This is a great question, and I think in some cases, it is going to depend on the child.  But I think for the most part, the best park for children under five is the Magic Kingdom.  There is a great mix of things to do for the whole family, but I think the park really has the most to do with younger children.  My girls have always loved the Magic Kingdom parades, the character meet and greets, and the number of attractions available to them. 

    Between Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride and It's a Small World, my little ones were always totally enthralled by the Magic Kingdom.  We also get such a kick out of taking our girls on things like Buzz Lightyear, where they are excited to be able to laser tag the bad guys, and at the end of the day, they always enjoy a last trip around the park on the train.

    There is something for everyone at all of the theme parks, but when it comes to little ones, this is my favorite.  I think you get the most bang for your preschooler buck at the Magic Kingdom.

    Have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World!
