    I'm very excited for my first ever trip to Walt Disney World this May! We are planning our trip and looking into our options for FastPasses and rope drops. I was wondering what ride you would suggest to do as my first ever Disney ride at MK? Thanks!

    Hi, Julie! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What an awesome question! I'm so happy to answer this one for you, but since I think it's impossible to narrow it down to one single attraction I'd like to give you my recommendations for each of the four major Theme Parks at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Of course, the most iconic part of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is seeing Cinderella Castle at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park. While you're there, you'll enjoy a plethora of stage shows, attractions and Character meet-and-greets, too. For me and my family, though, no visit to Magic Kingdom Park is complete without a ride on Space Mountain.

    Once you make your way to Epcot (the second Park to open at Walt Disney World Resort), you can't miss the ginormous geodesic sphere that is Spaceship Earth. While it doesn't have the "thrill factor" of some other Walt Disney World Resort attractions, Spaceship Earth is an awesome way to travel through the past and into the future. (And since the attraction will close for refurbishment soon, make sure you ride it at least once during your visit in May!) 

    You'll find Disney's Hollywood Studios nearby, and there you'll want to check out the all-new Toy Story Land and its family-friendly rollercoaster, Slinky Dog Dash. This is one of the smoothest coasters I've ever been on, and it's an awesome mix of thrilling and good ol' fun.

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you'll definitely want to make time for Avatar Flight of Passage in Pandora--The World of Avatar. This one-of-a-kind experience will revolutionize all future attractions!

    Hopefully these suggestions will provide you with a starting point at each of the Parks. Have an AMAZING first visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Julie!
