    What parks do you recommend for kids ages 2 and 5?


    I do think that there is something for any age in all four of the parks. However with younger kids like yours (mine are now 5 and 7, so I have been in your world very recently!), there are parks that are better for them than others.

    I would suggest to you that the Magic Kingdom has far more for them to do than any of the other parks. For example, if you were going for 4 days I would recommend 2 of your 4 days should be at the Magic Kingdom. Maybe even 3 of the 4.

    But a bit of variety is good. And as I said, there really is something for them at all four parks. So where else should you go? While it is the least attended of the four parks, I think Animal Kingdom is great for them. The play areas (Boneyard in Dinoland USA) are perfect for them. The animal attractions typically appeal to them as well. Probably right there in terms of appeal would be Hollywood Studios. It has a lot of appropriate stage shows, and the Disney Junior and Pixar themed characters are also ideally positioned.

    Epcot is a PHENOMENAL park, but it would be the one of the four that I would say holds a bit less for them. We go there every time we visit, but if days are short for you, you might save this park for a trip when they are just a bit older.

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
