    My husband & I will be in Orlando in December for three days. Could you please help me figure out what parks I should go too and things to do?


    Since I don't know you and your husband, let me tell you what my wife and I would do;

    1. Hit every park - With just three days, consider getting Park Hopper Passes. Give Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios a full day each, and split a day between Animal Kingdom (AM) and Epcot (PM).
    2. Dining at Epcot - We always hit this park hard for some great international cuisine.
    3. Thrill Rides - With no kids in tow, we get in our annual quota of thrill rides. Tops on the list are Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Test Track, and Expedition Everest.
    4. Date Night - Dinner at California Grill may make a bit of a dent in the budget, but it is our special evening. 
    5. Something new - We try to get out of our comfort zone on each visit. My first scuba dive was in the Living Seas at Epcot. Next on our list? Surfing Lessons at Typhoon Lagoon.
    6. Shopping - For us and for the kids.
    7. Relaxation - Some spa and pool time make it a real vacation for us!
    Write me with some information about what you guys like, and I am glad to offer more suggestions!

    Have a magical vacation!
