    Hi Cynthia!

    There are so many incredible things to see and do. I'm not sure which parks you plan to visit so I'll give you a few must dos at each & happy to give more if you'd like.

    Magic Kingdom
    I think that pretty much everything is a must do so I'll give you a few you may want to think about before doing or wait until you've done everything else * Space Mountain - your son (DS) may love it & your daughter (DD) may not. * Stitch's Great Escape - may be a little loud & scary for DD * Tom Sawyer Island * Swiss Family Treehouse * Tiki Room * Country Bear Jamboree * Carousel of Progress

    * The Seas With Nemo & Friends * Turtle Talk with Crush * Test Track * Mission: SPACE - read precautions before doing this one & selecting the Green Team or Orange Team * Innoventions East & West * Soarin
    * Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure * IllumiNations

    Hollywood Studios
    * Toy Story Mania * Jedi Training Academy * Beauty and the Beast * Indian Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular * Great Movie Ride * Star Tours * Muppet*Vision 3-D * Studio Backlot Tour * Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Show * Voyage of the Little Mermaid (DD will enjoy this one) * Disney Junior - Live on Stage (DD may enjoy this one) * Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (DS may enjoy this one) * Tower of Terror (may be too scary for DD) * Fantasmic

    Animal Kingdom
    * Kilimanjaro Safaris * Festival of the Lion King * Finding Nemo - The Musical * Rafiki's Planet Watch * Flights of Wonder * It's Tough to Be a Bug  * Expedition Everest (if they are thrill seekers)
    * Dinosaur (DS may enjoy this one)

    The pirate themed rooms at Caribbean Beach Resort are super cute & your kids would love it. Think about how much time you'll spend in the room. If you're in the parks most of the time, you may be happy with a regular room.  Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
