    We are going to Disney World 01/2013 - it is our first and probably only trip. Our daughter is 9 and our son is 7 - what are the MUST DOS for those ages? And MUST DOS for a mom/dad day/night?

    Hi Charity! Each park has some amazing things to see and do so will try to list what I consider the Must Do's!

    Animal Kingdom:
    Safari ride
    Expedition Everest
    Lion King show
    It's a Bugs Life
    Flights of Wonder
    both walking trails

    Test Track
    Spaceship Earth
    Turtle Talk with Crush
    Mission Space

    Night Fun for Adults:
    Dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse or Citricos, dueling pianos at Jellyrolls, fireworks cruise, Cirque du Soleil, or any of the great night spots in Downtown Disney. Most of the deluxe resorts have a bar and lounge where you can relax and have some quiet time as well. Hope this helps and let me know what else I can do to help plan your big trip.
