    I am taking my 18 month old to disney world for the first time. We only have time for 2 parks, the Magic Kingdom is a definate, but I would love suggestions on choosing another park.

    I consistently recommend the Animal Kingdom park as the second park for your visit with young children.  There are many attractions that they can enjoy as well as shows and also play ground interactive spots.  All of that plus the added bonus of live animals to amaze you through-out the park.  It is a large park and a great place to stroll and relax and enjoy. The daily parade is full of music and action and all the favorite characters.  To see descriptions of the attractions please click HERE.

    If you have the time try getting reservations for Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House.  It is a very popular and wonderful buffet plus Donald gets the kids up and out of their seats for some fun every morning!  For a quick service location that is our favorite  try Flame Tree Barbecue. Once you have your food take the trails down to the water's edge for a cool and relaxing lunch or dinner stop.

    Don't forget your camera...lots of photo opportunities in this beautiful park!
