    I will be making a trip to celebrate my daughter's 4th birthday - it'll be my husband and I, my daughter and 19 month old son. What park, other than magic kingdom, would be a good all day option for us?

    Hi Jennifer!

    I love celebrating birthdays at Disney World! I mean, does it get any better than that?!

    My personal favorite for a 2nd park for kids is the Animal Kingdom. It's my kids' favorite because their favorite shows are there (Festival of the Lion King and FInding Nemo: The Musical), lots of interactive animal exhibits (the Safari, Exploration Trail, Jungle Trek and Affection Section) plus a great parade and lots of yummy restaurants (Donald's Tusker House breakfast). And the Tree of Life is just awe-inspiring!

    The other good thing is that it's a smaller park so it will take you all day--but you'll get it all done in one day. And it's not a 10pm all day kinda thing. You'll be sufficiently tired AND fulfilled when it closes around 8pm!

    {If you do wanna push till 10pm, hit up Epcot or Hollywood Studios--I really don't think you can go wrong with either of them!}

    Have a magical birthday with your daughter!
