    Hi! We are heading to Disney for our first trip on May 4th-11th with our 5 year old son!! He is really into Star Wars, The Muppets and Cars. We have the park hopper passes for 6 days. What attractions are a must see and which park should we go to first?

    Hi there, Kim!

    Oh, do I have the starting Park for you: Disney's Hollywood Studios!! All three of his favorites are represented in one awesome place.

    Star Tours is a crazy-cool 3-D adventure through the Star Wars universe. And it's completely randomized, so you'll get a different story every time you ride!

    The Muppets star in a hilarious 3-D movie: Muppet Vision 3-D. See Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy -- and a few big surprises.

    Your Cars fan will thrill to Lights! Motors! Action! Extreme Stunt Show, starring none other than Lightning McQueen! And when that;s over, wander over to Luigi's Garage, where Lightning and his buddy Tow Mater are meeting and greeting their fans all day. Make sure to grab a Times Guide for more details on when performances take place.

    After you've had a blast exploring his favorites at the Studios, the rest is up to you. If you'd like, drop me a line with some more of your traveling party's must-dos, and I'll be glad to help you create the trip that's practically perfect in every way.

    See you later, celebrator,
