    Hi Amanda!

    There are so many hidden gems at Walt Disney World that you can experience something new each time you visit. 

    I think the best resource for finding out those little things is here at the Moms Panel! Each of our moms has been to Walt Disney World numerous times, so we have little tips and tricks for things to do that are off the beaten track.

    Some of my suggestions include:

    1. Sign up for the Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot in the Living the Land Pavillion 
    2. Take an archery lesson at the Fort Wilderness Cabins
    3. Look for Hidden Mickeys throughout the parks, resorts and restaurants
    4. Walt around Disney's Boardwalk area and get a corn dog, funnel cake and caricature drawn
    5. Order the Kitchen Sink from Beaches and Cream and share it with a LOT of friends
    6. Go on the Kilimanjaro Safari early in the morning when Animal Kingdom opens early for Extra Magic Hours - The animals are the most active in the morning
    7. Watch Wishes from atop of The Contemporary Resort at California Grill
    I hope this helps! Please feel free to come back to get more tips!
