    This is our first time going to Disney world. Two adults and two kids (5 and 8) end of August for 3 days. I'm overwhelmed with the choices and would really appreciate ideas for dining and what rides/attractions that we shouldn't miss. Thanks!

    Hello Erin,
    Oh my goodness your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is almost here, I can just imagine how excited your lovely family must be getting! 
    I completely understand how it feels to be making so many choices and trying to squeeze as much magic as possible into only 3 short days. However, you've certainly come to the right place for some planning advice and my first tip would be not to panic; you can do this! 
    Have you created a My Disney Experience and downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App? These amazing gizmos will make planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation a breeze and by using My Disney Experience Guests can select their FastPass+, make Advanced Dining Reservations, navigate the Disney Theme Parks and so much more besides...
    The Attractions I believe you shouldn't miss are:
    - Magic Kingdom Park: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Pirates of the Caribbean plus Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade.
    - Disney's Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Midway Mania! Star Tours - The Adventures Continue plus Fantasmic! 
    - Disney's Animal Kingdom Park: Kilimanjaro Safaris and Kali River Rapids.
    - Epcot: Soarin' and Spaceship Earth.
    As for dining at Disney... the choices are almost endless! Among my favorite Quick Service Restaurants are:
    Flame Tree Barbecue, Earl of Sandwich, Columbia Harbour House, Min and Bill's Dockside Diner, Liberty Inn, Main Street Bakery ...I really could go on and on!
    What ever you decide you'll have a magical vacation with your family for sure.
