    I am plannning my first trip to Disney World with 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son. We bought the 3 day 3 park pass. Since none of us have had any experience at disney before. Any thoughts on which park to do first? We are most excited about epcot

    Hi there Jennifer, Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your excellent question. I'm thrilled to assist you! How exciting that you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort! You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Since you and your kids are most excited about EPCOT, it’s a great idea to start your adventure there! EPCOT offers a mix of futuristic attractions and cultural experiences!

    Day 1: EPCOT
    • Must-See Attractions: Spaceship Earth, Test Track, Soarin' Around the World, Frozen Ever After and my favorite Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
    • World Showcase: Explore the pavilions representing different countries, each with unique dining, shopping, and entertainment options.
    • Dining: Consider booking a reservation at one of the many international restaurants for a memorable meal. A favorite of mine is Les Chefs de France. Once inside, you will actually feel like you are dining in France!
    Day 2: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    Spend your second day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a park that combines the thrill of rides with the beauty of nature!
    • Popular Attractions: My favorite, Avatar Flight of Passage, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Expedition Everest.
    • Shows: The Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond are fantastic live performances.
    • Animal Encounters: Explore the various animal exhibits and trails throughout the park.
    Day 3: Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    End your trip with the excitement of Hollywood Studios, known for its thrilling attractions and entertainment!
    • Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: Experience the immersive world of Star Wars with rides like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
    • Toy Story Land: Enjoy family-friendly rides like Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Mania.
    • A few favorites: Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, and the evening show, Fantasmic!
    Quick tips - If staying on property, take advantage of early theme park entry, take advantage of Disney Genie+. For theme park visits beginning July 24, 2024, Lightning Lane Multi Pass will replace Disney Genie+ service, and Lightning Lane Single Pass will replace individual Lightning Lane entry. Stay Hydrated and Take Breaks. Florida can be hot, so stay hydrated and take breaks to keep everyone energized.

    Jennifer, I hope you find this information helpful as you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. Have a magical day!
