    I am so excited that we have decided to take the kids to Disney from December 18-22, 2011. This will be the first trip for our kids ages 9, 7 & 5. What's the best way to know what each park has to offer, and can you save it to your itinerary somehow?

    Hi there Jennifer!

    Christmas time is such a beautiful time to go because of all of the wonderful decorations! Your kids are going to have a blast! Here's a list of my kids' favorite rides and shows at the Walt Disney World Resort. I make a spreadsheet with the dates that I'm going using the Disney on-line calendar for each park and date so I know when the parades and shows occur.

    Magic Kingdom...
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Tomorrowland Speedway, Haunted Mansion, It's a Small World, and Pirates of the Caribbean, Space, Big Thunder and Splash Mountains, PhilharMagic
    Don't miss: Both Parades, Wishes Fireworks, and catch a Dream Along With Mickey Show!

    Hollywood Studios...
    Muppet Vision 3D movie, Toy Story Mania!; Lights, Motors,  Rock-n-Roller Coaster, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Shows: Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Beauty and the Beast, “Disney Junior - Live on Stage!”
    Don't miss: Fantasmic!

    Soarin', The Seas with Nemo and Friends (specially Turtle Talk with Crush), Test Track, Spaceship Earth, Innoventions, Journey into Imagination with Figment, and World Showcase
    Don't miss: Illuminations: Refections of Earth

    Animal Kingdom...
    Kilimanjaro Safari, Kali River Rapids, Maharajah Jungle Trek, Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, Triceratops Spin, Dinosaur the ride, and Everest!
    Shows: Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo - The Musical

    Check the times guide when you arrive so that you know what time all of the parades and shows start.

    The most important thing to remember is to have fun plan ahead and know where all of the rides are prior to arrival! I hope you have a Magical Time! If you have any other questions we are here to help!
