Make sure to take them to the Dewey Short Center and to the fish hatchery where they can feed the fish. Fish food is around .25 but be sure to take a cup or something to put it in.

The Ducks are always a hit with the kids as well.

We have 3.5 year old twins and they have been going to Branson, since they were 2 months old..

If you don't have season passes for the park yet, I suggest buying a hopper or 3 park season pass.

SDC
Celebration City
White Water

Dixie Stampede
Branson Landing
Branson Belle
Catch a Fudgery Performance (making fudge and singing)
Disney Store (LOL.. more of a mommy thing...)
Walking a trail or two..
Moonshine Beach (great outdoor playground with swimming beach)
Fish Hatchery (.25 cents feed the fish and bring a cup or baggie)
Inspiration Towers
Any of the putt putt courses

Have fun and enjoy your family vacation..

My kids are now 8 and 12 and have been visiting Branson since they were 18 months old.

Our favorites:

SDC
Marvel Cave (inside of SDC)
Baldknobbers
Swimming at the resort pool
Minigolf (Pirates Cove is our favorite, Lost Treasure is second)
Shepherd of the Hills play
Visiting the 5 & 10 store downtown
Sammy Lane Pirate Cruise (no longer exists, but it was darn sure a favorite)
Late night snack at Cakes & Cream

I think you would like the Tracks. We took our married children and their kids and they loved the go carts and really liked the bumper boat and had a great time getting each other wet. I would get the "go card" and load it up. I got ours loaded at half price last year-online before we headed to Branson. Don't know if they are offering it now or not. Maybe you could google The Tracks,Branson and find their web site (sorry I don't know it). I'd say Silver Dollar City is a must and Celebration City also. (Get the hopper pass.) have a great time.

Here's the site for the 1/2 price credits: http://www.bransontracks.com/cart/gocard.asp

Also add:
- Laser Tag at the Family Fun Factory (glow-in-the-dark)
- The AquaPlex if you don't do White Water, but White Water would be the most fun for your age of kids

Since most of the top ten are listed I thought I throw out one that's not.
Feeding the ducks at the campground south of the landing( down from Bass Pro Shop). The marina sells corn for $1 a bag.

My kids love going to Branson. My newest started going when he was just 28 days old in fact. There is quite a great top ten list that has been made with the other posts. If you do a show I think the kids will absolutely love Kirby Van Burch. We visit Silver Dollar City quite a bit and its something the whole family will love. If its your first time to SDC, go early to avoid the traffic.

You have some great items listed. Moonshine Beach iss not yet open and they do not know when or if it will open because of the flooding. I have heard that the pebbles/sand is being washed away.
