    Hi, Dora! Thanks for visiting us here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Congratulations on your first trip to Walt Disney World! It sounds as if you'll be park hopping on June 19th between Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Normally, I would recommend a full day at each theme park, but if your itinerary doesn't allow for that, then it's important to prioritize the attractions and shows you want to experience since it isn't possible to "do it all" in just a half day.

    Here is my personal list of must-see attractions and entertainment at Animal Kingdom and Epcot:

    Kilimanjaro Safaris
    Expedition Everest
    The Oasis Exhibits
    Discovery Island Trails 
    Maharajah Jungle Trek
    Pangani Forest Exploration Trail
    Festival of the Lion King
    Finding Nemo - The Musical
    Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade
    It's Tough to Be a Bug!
    Flights of Wonder
    Wildlife Express Train
    Affection Section
    Conservation Station

    Test Track
    Spaceship Earth
    Mission: SPACE
    Sum of All Thrills (in Innoventions West building)
    The Seas with Nemo & Friends
    Turtle Talk with Crush
    Journey into Imagination with Figment
    Living with the Land 
    Disney Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure
    Country Pavilions in World Showcase
    Character Meet-and-Greets 
    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth (nighttime fireworks spectacular)

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Dora! Please write back if I can assist you further.
