    First timers to Disney includes myself, my husband and his mother and girls who are 9, 18, and 19 and will arrive June 24th staying through June 28th. Out of the 4 theme parks, which 2 do you recommend we visit and what days for each?

    Hey Beth and congrats on your first ever WDW trip.  Wow that is a tough question but my first choice is rather an easy one.  If you have never been to WDW before then to me a must see park is the Magic Kingdom.  It's where it all started and truly one of my all time favorite places to visit.  As far as a good day, that could depend on several factors, crowds in general, EMH and if there are any special events taking place on that day.  As a general rule most Disney insiders will tell you to avoid the MK on Mondays as that typically is one of the more crowded days during the week.
    Choosing the second park is where it gets tough.  I love DHS!  I love the attractions like Rock N Roller Coaster, ToT, the Beauty and the Beast Stage Show and Fantasmic but it's in a close tie with Epcot.  Based on the ages of your girls, I truly believe they would love either of these two parks.  Why not go on line and let them look at the attractions and decide.  You can't go wrong with either of these and there will truly be something for everyone in your party to enjoy.
    Thanks so much for the great question, and I hope you have a magical first WDW trip.
