    We have never been to Disney! I have a 4 year old and an 8 year old. Which parks should we visit and what attractions do we need to see? We have 3 day hopper passes. Please help!!! Thanks

    Hi Crystal,

    A first trip to Walt Disney World is extremely memorable and I'm delighted to help with your plans.

    With only 3 days to tour, I would concentrate on 2 days at the Magic Kingdom with 1 day another park that interests you the most.

    At the Magic Kingdom, you'll want to see and do as much as possible. This is the iconic park of Disney World and almost nothing should be missed. See the parades, fireworks, shows, and attractions.

    Other parks to choose from include the Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    The Must See Attractions at these parks include include:

    Animal Kingdom - Festival of the Lion King, Expedition Everest (for thrill-seekers), Kilimanjaro Safari
    Epcot - IllumiNations, Soarin, Test Track and World Showcase
    Disney's Hollywood Studios - Toy Story Midway Mania, Star Tours, Fantasmic. Plus Rock n Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror for thrill-seekers.

    I would advise reading about each park before making your choice.

    Have a magical vacation!
