    We will be visitng WDW in March with our (almost) 5- and 2-year old boys (their first time). I'm anticipating my 5 year-old will want multiple days in MK, which of the other parks might appeal most to their age group? Thanks!

    This will be a memorable trip for your two little guys!  Being a grandmother some of my fondest memories are when I took my children for their first trip and then my grandsons as well.  I can feel the excitement from here.

    For your age boys I agree that multiple days in the Magic Kingdom will be a must.  There is so much to see and do there and many character opportunities as well.  Another park that my grandson has enjoyed is Animal Kingdom as he loves animals and carries as many stuffed ones to bed every night that he can handle.  The Kilimanjaro Safari is a favorite as well as Lion King show, Finding Nemo show, and the Pangani Forest and Maharajah Jungle trails to see the gorillas and tigers.  It'sTough To Be a Bug might be too intense for them but if you do try it sit in the back on the left side to avoid the big bug coming up in front!

    Moving on, Disney's Hollywood Studios also has attractions for the smaller set.  The one that can't be missed is Playhouse Disney-Live on Stage!  Your boys will be up and dancing and having the time of their life with this show.  Other suggestions here in this park are Beauty and the Beast, Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, and Voyage of the Little Mermaid (although my grandson was a little frightened of Ursula).  A little bit more for adults but children also enjoy are Toy Story Mania, Lights, Motors, Action! Stunt Show, and Muppet Vision 3D (only because keeping 3D glasses on small children can be difficult).

    Don't forget the rider switch option as well for attractions that some of you want to ride but others aren't able to or wish not to.  Enjoy your trip and make sure the camera is ready for all the adventures!
