    We are going to Disney World for the first time this June. Are there some "must do" events? Any tips on when to arrive at the park?

    Hi Christy!

    I highly recommend arriving at the parks upon rope drop.

    My top five list:

    1. Dine at California Grill at night, during the same time as Wishes, and watch the spectacular fireworks show from atop the Contemporary Resort.

    2. Ride Toy Story Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios and then meet Buzz and Woody afterwards

    3. Check out the recently renovated Disney Springs. Shop at Pandora, buy some new workout gear at Under Armor, get a new purse from Kate Spade and sample chocolate at The Ganachery.

    4. Frozen Ever After and the recently reimagineered Soarin'' are both set to open in June at Epcot. 

    5. Animal Kingdom's new experiences at night will be coming this summer!
