    We are Florida residents trying to take advantage of the 3 day Discover Disney package. We have already used one day on the Magic Kingdom and we're looking on advice on other parks that would entertain a 6yr, 3yr, and 13 month old on the weekend of 4/18.

    Hi, Rodney!  Each child is different, and if I had to think of my own children, I'd probably get three different answers about which parks they'd like to visit.  

    I would say with kids this age, Disney's Hollywood Studios can be a lot of fun.  With attractions like Toy Story Midway Mania and the Voyage of the Little Mermaid, some of their favorite characters and some classic characters will bring fun and excitement.  Disney, Jr. has a stage show that is popular with many little ones, and the chance to meet Toy Story's Green Army Men or Buzz Lightyear can round out a great day.

    My youngest has always loved Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Take a safari ride that will really make you feel like you have been transported to an African savanna.  Enjoy a brief trip back in time with TriceraTop Spin, which is fun for all ages.  The Festival of the Lion King is a must see show for us, as is Finding Nemo, the Musical.  And don't forget the animals!  There are plenty of opportunities to gaze at a gorilla or groom a goat.  The BoneYard is also a great place for kids to play for a while in between attractions.

    I wouldn't entirely rule out EPCOT, but I know with my kids, we spent more time at the other parks than we did at EPCOT.  My girls loved the shows throughout the World Showcase, but they enjoyed the attractions at the other parks just a bit more.

    Enjoy a wonderful weekend!
