    hi Amanda A. Would you recommend Monsters inc Laugh floor at MK for DS4.9 and DD2.5? Also which must-do attractions in each park that are not fast pass should we go to first thing? Thanks!!

    Hi Julie! It's great to hear from you again! Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor is one of my family's must-do attractions on every Magic Kingdom visit -- it's so entertaining and different every time! I would definitely recommend Laugh Floor for young children. It's a fun show full of corny jokes and not scary at all. The Laugh Floor is not an attraction you need to hit as soon as you enter the Magic Kingdom; it's typically fairly easy to see without a long wait so you can save it for later in the day.

    At the Magic Kingdom, head to the attractions in Fantasyland first. Enchanted Tales with Belle is a wonderful interactive story that you should try to experience before the lines become too long. Many of the rides in Fantasyland do offer FastPass, but if you arrive before the parks open you can often experience most of them first thing with little waiting. In addition to the Fantasyland attractions, don't miss Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and the Jungle Cruise.

    In Epcot, must-do attractions for your little ones include The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Turtle Talk with Crush. They'll also love Journey into Imagination with Figment, Spaceship Earth, and Mexico's The Three Caballeros, but wait times for those are generally not really long.

    In Animal Kingdom, in addition to the Kilimanjaro Safaris, your kids will really enjoy Finding Nemo -- The Musical and TriceraTop Spin. The Flights of Wonder show and Festival of the Lion King are great, and little ones love taking the Wildlife Express Train to the Affection Section at Rafiki's Planet Watch.

    In Hollywood Studios, you'll want to use a Fastpass for Toy Story Mania. Other attractions your little ones will enjoy include Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Disney Junior Live on Stage and Muppet*Vision 3D. If your son is a Star Wars fan, definitely plan to sign him up for Jedi Training as soon as you enter the park.

    Come visit me again if you have more questions! I'm always happy to help, Julie!
