As far as location, both of are good choices. I've never been inside either. Adjacent to lots of restaurants & activities. Close to Walmart for last minute supplies & Spec's on 61st street, great liquor store. Moody Gardens Rain Forest & aquarium pyramids are worth the effort, in my opinion. A 1st rate aircraft museum near by too. Riding the ferry across the bay is fun, we do it for grins, but you won't see anything that can't be see from the Magic. The lines can be a real bear if you drive on. Parking & walking is the best bet. UNLESS you want to drive to Fort Travis, I haven't been in years, but it was really cool & free.
