How is DCA for 2 and a 5 yo?



We went to WDW 11/00 and 4/99. Will do another Disney trip this year, but I was wondering if DL and DCA is a good alternative to WDW for a 2 and 5 yo.

...I compare it to MGM Studios in a way. I would not recommend this for young children. IMHO they would be BORED!

I'm sure they's love Disneyland though. I guess it depends on how much of a trip you want to make it.

There are some things there that they would enjoy - Muppet Theatre, the animation studios, some of the rides in the Paradise Pier area, and parts of the Redwood Creek Challenge. It certainly is a visual feast. Worth a hop. :)

My kids are both of similar ages, (4 yr old daiughter, 7 year old son) but my biggest concern is that my daughter has bradykinesis so i'm concerned about the children getting split up (as who can keep up with a 7 year old boy anyway, let alone with bradykinesis?). are the facilities for getting children relocated good at disneyworld?

Aussie Jim, you mean DisneyLand... in California - yes, they have a lost parents/childrens place in all the parks, Disneyland and DisneyWorld in Florida. :)

If you can swing a day-trip, then consider a visit to LegoLand in Carlsbad (about 60 miles south of Anaheim). It is tailor made for kids about 2-10. It is a very clean park and the rides are great for the little ones. Kids get a 'height' wristband so they don't have to be measured at each ride. Most rides are accessible to kids>36 inches tall.
