I'm being forced to visit Disney in September, for two and a half days. The rest of my family will be staying longer, so I get to pick what we do those two and a half days. My son is 5 and this is his first Disney "experience". What the heck do I select?

I know, I know ... first world problems. I'm also aware that I sound like a huge curmudgeon, but visiting these parks just doesn't sound fun to me.
The "Magic Kingdom" part isn't really interesting to me, and my son is not really familiar with most Disney property characters (Cars excepted). I accept, though, that he'll experience the Magic Kingdom with all the awe and magic that is intended, and I accept that one of my two and a half days will need to be spent visiting it. But what else do I choose?
I arrive late Friday night. My flight leaves at 6 pm Monday, leaving behind my husband and son and the rest of my husband's family to do stuff. The only thing that sounds somewhat interesting to me is the Animal Kingdom part but my in-laws (who have been to Disney many many times) have been pretty clear about how "slow" "crowded" and "boring" they think it is.
Thoughts? Disney veterans here? Help me enjoy this enforced vacation.
