    What are some must see for first time visitors(1 adult-female and 1 child-11 year old girl) on a budget?

    Howdy Karla!  Thanks so much for your question!  I'm so excited for you!!  You are both going to have a fabulous time!

    I have a few questions for you.  Are you staying in a hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort?  What time of year will you be there?  What Theme Park(s) do you plan to visit?  What type of attractions do you both enjoy?  Do you like the iconic attractions, such as It's a Small World, or are you thrill seekers and something like Expedition Everest would be enjoyed?

    As you plan for your vacation, be sure to look for special offers at Walt Disney World

    While at Epcot, you might consider Agent 's World Showcase Adventure.  It's an interactive quest around the World Showcase and is typically enjoyed by kids, tweens and teens.

    At Magic Kingdom, be sure to visit The New Fantasyland!  It's truly enchanting and is loved by children of all ages! 

    If y'all are thrill seekers, I suggest Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain at Magic Kingdom, Test Track and Soarin' at Epcot, Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom.

    There are so many things for you to do and enjoy together.  I think the most important thing I can recommend is that you make a tentative plan for each day, highlight the attractions you most want to experience and then go in and share some Disney time together.  Relish those moments that take your breath away and take picture after picture to help you capture the memories.

    As you continue to plan your vacation, please let me know if you have any further questions.  I'm so excited for you!!  Have a magical time!!!
