    Hi Toni,

    Thanks for writing!  Based on your children's ages and interests, I would recommend spending one day at Magic Kingdom and the other at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  At Studios, be sure to stop by the new Star Tours in Digital 3-D, and Disney Junior (the new name for Playhouse Disney) Live on Stage.  There is a great character breakfast and lunch at Hollywood and Vine that features members of the Little Einsteins and Captain Oso that I'm guessing your little one will love!  At Magic Kingdom, virtually every attraction will appeal to your kids.  Pirates of the Caribbean will be a must do for your family of pirate lovers.  You might also want to consider getting pirate transformations for your two boys at Pirates League at Magic Kingdom.  I did this with my boys a few months back and they loved it!

    As for dining plans, in general, my family tends to save about 20% on meals with the basic Disney Dining Plan.  I have never opted for a plan on relatively short trips, however.  If you are planning on spending the bulk of your two days inside the them parks, and plan on eating at counter-service (rather than sit-down, table-service) establishments, you might consider the Quick Service Dining Plan for your visit.  For more information on dining plans, click HERE.

    Have a great trip!
