    Hi! My family and I have our first-ever Disney vacation planned for Spring Break for 5 days in March. There will be 10 of us travelling together; the kids range in age from 2-14. What are the things that we just *can not miss* while we are there? Thanks!

    Hello Julie!

    I am so excited to hear that you are going to be taking your first ever Walt Disney World vacation! Traveling to Disney World with such a large group requires a lot of planning, but it is so much fun. There is something for every age, from the very young to the very young at heart.
    In Magic Kingdom, the classic attractions such as Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean are always at the top of our list.  The new Dumbo the Flying Elephant is a Disney classic that your family must experience, a new interactive wait area will be sure to please the younger ones in your group.  If you are looking for the ultimate snack, a Dole Whip is one of the most beloved treats of this park.  At night you want to make sure to get a good spot early for the nightly showing of Wishes, this firework show makes our day at Magic Kingdom complete!
    In Epcot attractions such as Soarin', the newly redesigned Test Track and Mission Space as is Turtle Talk with Crush, The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Journey into the Imagination top our must do list.  World Showcase is a cultural can't miss, every country is so authentically represented that each cast member working there is actually from that country.End the evening with Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, another spectacular way to the end the evening.
    In Hollywood Studios,Tower of Terror, Rock n Roller Coaster, Toy Story Mania are the top must do attractions for this park.This park features some great shows such as Voyage of he Little Mermaid and I highly recommend to stay in the evening for a showing of Fantasmtic!, this is without a doubt the most popular show at Disney World so I recommend the second viewing as it is less crowded.There are lots of wonderful things to discover here so take some time to slow down, find that magic and create some of the most precious memories of your life!

    Enjoy your "Disney Time!"
