    Hello mom :)This is our first time with 2 boys. 5,3. Planning to go to mk, holywd studios and animal k. Thinking should i go to Epcot also? Don't know which park should I go for the first day and the restaurant with characters? Thank you.

    Hi, Brandon!  I am so excited about your upcoming FIRST trip with your two little guys!  There is just something so incredibly magical about a child's first visit to Walt Disney World!

    On our first day, we like to go to the Magic Kingdom.  Not only is this the centerpiece of the Walt Disney World experience, there is so much to do there for children the ages of your sons!  They will love riding Buzz Lightyear, Aladdin's Magic Carpets, and seeing some of their favorite Disney characters! 

    Of my three daughters, only one of them really appreciated EPCOT by about age five, so if you have an extra day, I might be more inclined to take them back to the Magic Kingdom for a second day.  Of course, there are things at EPCOT the boys would enjoy, but some of it may be geared more towards children that are a little bit older. 

    As for restaurants with the characters, there are quite a few!  For boys this age, I'd say try Donald's Safari Breakfast at Animal Kingdom or Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort.  Both have characters that the boys will know and love, without being too princess-y!
