Cocoa beach, and new Smyrna beach where you can park on the beach. There are things to do in universal for younger kids, like Suess Landing in islands of adventure.

I wouldnt pay $150 to take them at that age. There is only a few things that will last a couple hours at best
Most rides they need to be 52" to ride
My three year old is 41"

At Universal Studios there's a Barney Show, a small roller coaster for kids 36" and up, E.T. Adventure is for kids 34" and up, Jimmy Neutron Nicktoon Blast is 40", Shrek 4-D, a show called Animal Actors on Location, and two play areas called Curious George Goes to Town and Fievel's Playland. Both of the play areas have a lot of water features.

And to add...

At IOA you have Seuss Landing, Me Ship The Olive, Jurassic Park Discovery Center and Camp Jurassic. There is plenty for small children to do in both parks.

My son is 4, and he rides, spiderman, the popeye & pluto, dudley do-right, Jurassic Park River Adventure, Pteranodon Flyers (waste of time), The Cat In The Hat, Caro-Seuss-el, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, flight of the hippogriff.

At universal studios he rides, MIB, Jaws, Shrek 4-D, The Simpsons Ride, ET, Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster.

If you get the fastpass, you can actually do all of them in one day, that is what we do, if you are 4, 2 parents and 2 kids, like us you only need 2 fast tickets, since the 3 yearold is not going to be doing much, one parent can go with the oldest while the other wait outside, We have a one year old so he doesnt do anything. But still even with 2 big kids, you just need 2 tickets, just switch each time, you need to get the unlimited fastpass, and not the one ride only...
When we go, always do the 2 park and ride almost everything...
Always 2 or 3 times Spiderman, 3 times the Cat in the Hat, about 3 times Jaws, and about once or twice the others. Make sure you get there about 8:30 am, when we do this, is about 1 pm when we already done everything at Island and we are walking to Universal.
My kid loves more Universal and Island, when we ask him if he wants to go to Disney or Universal he always say Universal... So yes, there is plenty of things to do with a 4 or 5 yearold.
