    We will be at staying at WDW AK 7/21-7/27. What would you say are must do's and places to eat?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Congratulations on your fast-approaching vacation!

    Well ... where do I begin? My own personal "must do" and "must eat" list is very long ;) But I'll try to condense it into some Top Picks for you. If these don't suit your tastes, feel free to message me again with some of your family's likes and dislikes for dining as well as ages of children in your traveling party if applicable and I'll be happy to give you some more specifically-geared recommendations!

    For each park, I'll give you my top "thrill" and family attractions, best meal and "must-try" snack.

    Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain, Peter Pan's Flight 
    Tony's Town Square, Dole Whip from Aloha Isle in Adventureland

    Epcot: Soarin', The Seas with Nemo & Friends
    Teppan Edo, Kaki Gori shaved ice in Japan

    Hollywood Studios: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania
    Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, Carrot Cake Cookie from Writer's Stop

    Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris
    Dining: Flame Tree BBQ, Waffle Cone from the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck

    On top of these, you just can't miss Wishes at Magic Kingdom, IllumiNations at Epcot, Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios, and be sure to schedule in an evening at Downtown Disney. It's the perfect way to end your Animal Kingdom day since the park closes earlier than the others do. Consider dinner at Paradiso 37 while you're there, and be sure to visit Design-a-Tee, Ridemakerz and Goofy's Candy Co.

    I hope these tips help you out with your planning Jennifer!
    Feel free to visit me again with more great questions.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
