    First time with 16yr boy and 12yr girl. We have been to Disneyland. What should we absolutely experience when we go. Fast pass best uses? Never saw the night show. Want the best bang with 3 day hopper tickets. Thanks

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As a long-time Disney Enthusiast, I love both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World.

    The feel of Magic Kingdom is different and, well, magical. Start with exclusive attractions like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Some of the most popular attractions like "it's a small world" and Space Mountain will be familiar from your Disneyland visit, yet their Magic Kingdom experiences are different. Dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table are also unique experiences. Don't miss Happily Ever After! nighttime fireworks.

    You'll want to explore Disney's Animal Kingdom and Pandora – The World of Avatar. Avatar Flight of Passage is indescribably awesome, and Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safaris are also must-do attractions. Finding Nemo - The Musical is my favorite Walt Disney World stage show. Tiffins is my favorite in-park restaurant and Satu'li Canteen is out-of-this-world delicious. Rivers of Light is a beautiful nighttime spectacular.
    At Epcot, you'll want to experience all the country pavilions at World Showcase. My first suggestion for FastPass+ is Test Track. Soarin' Around the World is equally great, though you hopefully took that flight at Disney California Adventure Park. IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is my favorite nighttime spectacular and takes my breathe away each time I see it.

    While I'm not sure when you are visiting, I hope you'll be able to play big in Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Since you hopefully already enjoyed Toy Story Mania!, my suggestion is to make FastPass+ selections for Slinky Dog Dash or Alien Swirling Saucers.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
