    I have a 2 year old boy and 4 year old girl. First trip as a family to WDW first week of May. Planning on 2 days at the the parks, MK & HS. 1 day at the waterparks or AK. Any suggestions and which waterpark is best for the little ones? Thanks.

    Hi Christopher,

    Thanks for writing.  My boys love Animal Kingdom and the Disney Water Parks and have since they were your kids' ages, so it's a tough call.  I might pull up each of the parks on the Disney website, and highlight their key attractions to your children, and let them make the call!  As for which water park is best for tiny tots, they are both great, and have fabulous, well-themed kiddie areas.  However, if I had to pick, I would suggest Blizzard Beach.  Here, the children's area, "Tikes Peak" is a mini-replica of the larger park, and has fantastic slides, raft rides and splash areas that will likely have your kids begging to stay the entire day.  There are also plenty of shaded areas with tables and lounge chairs, making this the perfect area to "set up camp" for the day.  If you chose to go to Blizzard Beach, I recommend arriving early in the day, as prime real estate tends to fill up quickly.  Be sure to bring along towels, pool shoes and sun screen!  Towels are available to "rent," but I recommend just bringing some from your resort.  Have a magical trip!
