    My husband and I and our 3 children ages 7, 5 & 3 are heading to Disney this later this month (July). This will the first time for my family. We are staying at one of the Disney World Resort and would like to know best rides for kids and table servi

    Hi Monica! How exciting that your family's first Walt Disney World vacation is almost here!

    To make the most of your time visiting the parks, plan to arrive each day before they open so you'll be able to experience lots of attractions with little waiting. Head to the most popular attractions first, and take advantage of the Fastpass service to minimize your time in lines.

    For young kids, some of the must-do attractions in each park include the following:

    Hollywood Studios: Register the older two children for Jedi Training if they are Star Wars fans. Grab Fastpasses or ride Toy Story Mania first thing. If your kids are princess fans, don't miss The Little Mermaid and Beauty and The Beast. The Indiana Jones and Lights, Motors, Action shows are entertaining for all ages.

    Animal Kingdom: Your kids will love spotting animals on the Kilimanjaro Safaris. Finding Nemo -- The Musical is mesmerizing. If your kids enjoy animals, they'll love the Flights of Wonder show and the Affection Section petting zoo.

    Magic Kingdom: All of the attractions in Fantasyland will be big hits with your kids. Don't miss the new Enchanted Tales with Belle and the Journey of the Little Mermaid. Dumbo is always fun, as is Peter Pan. Mickey's PhilharMagic is not to be missed!

    Epcot: Turtle Talk with Crush and The Seas with Nemo and Friends are fun for young kids.

    If your older kids are thrillseekers, they'll love rides like Space Mountain, Tower of Terror, Expedition Everest and Rock'n'Roller Coaster. Use the Rider Swap so the adults can take turns watching the toddler and riding without having to wait in line twice.

    A character meal is a great way to meet Mickey and friends -- make reservations at Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace or Cinderella's Royal Table. Other fun and tasty restaurants include 'Ohana, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, and the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue.
