Day trip to Disney World

I have never been to Disney World. I want to go. We live In Daytona Beach area so we are close. Was thinking about taking a day trip down there sometime but have no idea what is the best thing to do. I have 3 kids...boy11, girl9 and boy5. I know there are a lot of parks down there and they all cost close to $100 per person to get in so we can only afford to visit one place at a time. What would you suggest?

Magic kingdom hands down. Those ages are great for that park. If they are big into animals Animal Kingdom is nice but not worth the price. EPCOT is honestly more for adults and they will think the countries are boring. Hollywood Studios would also be a good choice especially if they like scary thrill rides like Tower of Terror and Rockin'Rollercoaster. Magic Kingdom will give you the most bang for your buck though with lots of rides that include more for the 5yr old and a parade and if you go on the right night fireworks too.

Also if its a day trip you may wanna think going the evening before spend the night in an expensive hotel,get up bright&early then go to D.W. Magic Kingdom to get the maximum out of your visit.

Yeah it would definitely just be a day trip. We only live an hour away from Orlando.
