    We are doing a SHORT - 2 day at MK - July 13 & 14 - staying at Sports - quick dining. First trip for DD8 and DS6 - going to be a SURPRISE. Any tips or suggestions - don't want to miss the highlights, but don't want to feel rushed to "do it all.&

    Hi Anissa!

    I recommend visiting the independent website  There you can look at various touring plans, which are recommend sequences to experience the attractions, for the Magic Kingdom.  Their recommendations are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I'm a huge fan of their work.  Their touring plans can help you see more attractions while minimizing your waiting in lines.

    Since it is a first time trip, I also recommend picking up the book "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal.  It's a great book for first timers.  It has just the right amount of information without being overwhelming.  It's also a beautiful book full of fabulous color pictures.

    Have a magical vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
