    Headed for a magical vacation Jan 26- Feb 3 with a 5yr old boy and a 2yr old girl. What would be your top ten must-dos at Animal Kingdom?

    Hi April! 

    We LOVE Disney's Animal Kingdom!  With a 5 year old and a 2 year old, I'd suggest these favorites from my boys when they were that age (in no particular order)

    Kilimanjaro Safaris--ride early in the morning/late evening for most 'action'
    Maharajah Jungle Trek--they LOVE looking for all the animals!
    Pangani Forest Exploration Trail--again, love roaming the trails looking for animals
    Finding Nemo - The Musical--pure magical entertainment!
    Festival of the Lion King--another "don't miss" show!  Simply stunning!
    Flights of Wonder--my boys get a real kick out of the birds in this show
    The Boneyard--a great place to play and unwind, this has quickly moved up into one of our favorite places to let the kids run 'wild.'
    TriceraTop Spin--loved each and every time
    Rafiki's Planet Watch--the kids love exploring here and learning about the animals.
    Camp Minnie-Mickey--stop by and say, "HI!" to Mickey and Friends!

    They also really enjoy lunch at Rainforest Cafe.  Eating there has quickly become one of our traditions!

    Have a magical vacation!
