    We are going on our first WDW trip in April of 2014. We have a 5 and 3 year old daughter, and a 2 year old son. We can only afford to go to 2 different theme parks. We know Magic Kingdom for sure, but what other is a good choice for kids this age?

    Hi there Vanessa!

    Congratulations on your first Walt Disney World vacation! I know you must be super excited to visit the "Most Magical Place on Earth" with your three young Mouseketeers in April! 

    This is an excellent question! Magic Kingdom Park is definitely a great choice for little ones! Based on the ages of your children, I recommend visiting either DIsney's Animal Kingdom Park or Disney's Hollywood Studios for your second theme park. If your children enjoy seeing exotic animals, then consider a visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. My favorite attractions at this beautiful theme park include Kilimanjaro Safaris, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Festival of the Lion King, and Finding Nemo - The Musical. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, your children will love Disney Junior - Live on Stage!, Toy Story Midway Mania!, The Great Movie Ride, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, and Fantasmic!, my absolute favorite show at Walt DIsney World. Based on my own personal experience, Disney's Hollywood Studios is one theme park that my children never want to skip when planning our itinerary. I hope this information helps in making your decision! Please don't hesitate to write me back if you have any additional vacation planning questions. I would love to assist you further in the planning of a magical first trip, Vanessa!

    Happy Planning,
