    My husband and I are used to visiting Disney World each year and doing the "adult" things. We now have two children in our family and are taking them to their first Disney visit over New Year 2014. What are some "must do" things for the

    Hello Candace, welcome to the Disney Parks Mom's Panel!

    Most of attractions and events are design for guests of all ages, but your kids age, height and taste will determine the must do activities for your family.

    Experiencing the parks early in the morning and late at night may allow your family to enjoy the parks with the lowest crowd levels of the day.

    Character dining is a perfect way to start a day or to slow down and relax during peak hours.  Among my family's favorite: The Crystal Palace, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, 'Ohana and Tusker House.

    The Pirates League, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and Jedi Training Academy are unique experiences that you will cherish for many years.

    La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil is a beautiful show about perfection, arts and clowns.

    At Animal Kingdom kids can see, touch and learn about different animals in attractions like Affection Section, Kilimanjaro Safari, Maharajah Jungle Trek and Pangani Forest Explorations Trail - among many others.

    At Hollywood Studios the whole family can learn how to draw Disney characters at the Animation Station - located at the Magic of Disney Animation.

    My kids enjoy strolling around the world tasting different foods and snacks, before making their favorite stop at the Japan store

    And of course, having the opportunity to hug and take a photograph with your favorite Disney characters.

    Since there are lots of activities not to be missed during a Disney vacation, I suggest getting familiar with the parks and attractions before arriving to your vacation.

    Hope to hear again from you.
