    We are coming to orlando in april. We have a family of five: twins, a boy and girl, 10yr. old and youngest son, 4yrs old. what's the best theme park for them all to enjoy with this age difference and the least exspensive?

    Hi Tarrah!

    Hi!  My own children are 10 and 5 and i asked my 10 year old for some advice.  We both agree that you should spend the day at either the Magic Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Top thrill attractions at the Studios include the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.  Your twins will probably enjoy them, if they like thrill rides.  Your 4 year old will probably enjoy Playhouse Disney, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, and the Beauty and the Beast stage show.  Toy Story Mania, Muppet Vision 3-D, and the nighttime spectacular Fantasmic! should be enjoyable for the whole family.  Star Tour may also be suitable for the whole family, depending on your 4 year old; some 4 year old children love it while others are frightened in it.

    However, if this is your first trip to Walt Disney World, then I suggest you select the Magic Kingdom.  The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort.  From fairy tale dreams to far away adventures, the Magic Kingdom offers something for everyone.  Generally, older children love Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad while younger children love all of the attractions in Fantasyland.  Your 4 year old may also enjoy Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  There are plenty of additional attractions for the whole family to enjoy.

    Either way, your children should have a good time in whatever park you pick!  Because I'm not sure what you were asking about with regards to "least expensive", please feel free to write me back!  If you are referring to theme parks, the price to enter each is exactly the same.

    Have a magical day!
