Check out the campground for sure! Last time we were there the kids were reluctant to go into the parks they wanted to just hang out camp (so did mom & dad). Hope you guys have an awesome trip in April!

We couldn't pick top 3 overall. Maybe a top 3 in each park, our must do attractions... (keeping your kids in mind):
AK: Safari, Tough to be a Bug, anything watching/near animals
MK: Pirates, Mansion, (for you I'd include Small World.. even just thinking about it, I can't get the song out of my head )& Jungle Cruise
Studios: Toy Story Mania, Muppet Vision 3D, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (new & wasn't open the last time we were there; check height restriction)
EPCOT & World Showcase: Illuminations, Spaceship Earth (aka 'Golf ball' ), Turtle Talk with Crush (Crush interacts with the kids ).

Not going to justify our choices, so don't ask!

Be aware, there are tons of other things for young and old, but you are doing your homework and are well aware of that - aren't you?

And, BTW, our first trip we drove in 2 days from Southern Michigan to WDW.
2 adults, 2 kids (4 and 8), in a not very new 2-door Ford Escort and stayed at the Poly.
At the end of day 2, we virtually stumbled out of the car, staggered into the lobby, our jaws dropped, and I thought 'Holy ****' this is awesome but where do we go and what do we do? We felt totally out of place.

After food and a good night's rest, it all came together the next morning at breakfast in the 'Tangeroa Terrace.' We reviewed our meal reservations and our attraction plans and had several wonderful Disney Days!
Then it was back to reality in the Escort and a l-o-n-g drive home.

they didnt have the full 10 days on 1 site so i had to book 2, the first 4 days is on a full hook up site and the last 6 days is on a preffered site, im hoping they can put me on the same site for the whole time but we shall see

Which level did you want to start with? 1400 and 400 are both Premium, 1600, 1700, 1800 and 1900 are full hook-up.

ok so then maybe it was 1600 and 400, they told me on the phone, i just cant remember for sure

i would like to try and get the premium site for the whole time, either way its still cheaper for a site at wdw then it is for a electrical only site at the places we are used to camping so the 90 bucks a night does not bother me at all with all the amenities they have

ya i have been keeping an eye on the website, but i have already made 3 expensive calls so i will just roll the dice when i get there

also you being from the rust belt like us, how do you wash your rig on the way down? i know before it starts to get warm im gonna need to get the salt of my truck and trailer

also i have figured my first stop to be a koa in kentucky (corbin) it looks like i can book it but i hav never stayed at a KOA so im wondering if they are open year round, i would like to not have to pay for a hotel or motel
my 2nd night stop i want to make it to lake city (lake city campground looks nice) then when we get up the next morning we are within 3 hours and can have a nice easy drive that day

and these are also figured by using google maps so times may very
