What to do?

So we are in Orlando for 10 days, over Easter Break..We have a 14 yr old, 11 yr old and an 8 yr old... we are going to do 2 days at Disney.. Magic kingdom for sure... maybe animal kingdom? Is it worth it to add on water park option or will it be too busy? The other option was to do Aquatica with Seaworld...Lastly 1 or 2 days at Universal? We don't want to be in the parks everyday.....any feed back would be great!

As you are only in Orlando for 10 days, I would not suggest Cape Canaveral or the Kennedy Space Center as both require a lot of travelling.

Discovery Cove is well worth considering; however it may be too late to book for this Easter. http://www.discoverycove.com/

You can book without swimming with dolphins, and still watch them performe, this works out much cheaper. Besides swimming with dolphins there are several pools you can go swimming in including one with fish, there is a lazy river that takes you slowly around most of the park, sandy beaches and a very large aviary where you can feed the birds. I would recommend getting there early say 8.30am so that you have the pick of the time to swim with dolphins, personally I would go for mid morning to swim with the dolphins, you are not hungry or tired and will enjoy it more because of that. Discovery Cove limit the number of people to a 1,000 any one day. You can usually book up to 10 months ahead, book as soon as you can so as to choose the date you want.

In would recommend 2 days for each Magic Kingdom and Universal

The Kennedy Space Center is about a 60-minute drive from Disney or 45 minutes from Orlando Airport, mostly via the Beachline Expressway, an easy trip if you have a car. The sights there are real, not fantasy, and are unique in the entire world. You can spend 5-6 hours (or more, if you are really into history and technology) there, so I would advise going over early to arrive around the 9 a.m. opening. As suggested, also visit the port and beaches around Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach if you go -- they are right in the same area.

Thanks for the suggestions... we are going to Cocoa Beach on Easter weekend, there's a surf competition going on that we want to take in! So we may just check out Space Center!
