    which parks is the best for a 5 yr and 11 yr old for a two day visit?

    Hello Aniela,

    It looks like your trip is coming right up! You must be getting so excited.

    With the ages of your little ones, I would do one of two things. My first choice would be to spend two days at the Magic Kingdom. This park is particularly suited to little, medium, and big people. With many classic attractions like Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (just to name a few) along with a fabulous afternoon parade you can easily fill two days and have a great time!  

    My second choice would be to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom the first day and the Magic Kingdom the second.  Disney's Animal Kingdom is actually my personal favorite park. You can experience the thrill of Expedition Everest- Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, the wonder of the African savannah on the Kilimanjaro Safari, and enjoy Broadway-quality entertain when watching Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo- The Musical.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    See ya real soon,
