    Welcome to the Moms Panel Amy!

    Planning a first trip to Disney can be super exciting & overwhelming at the same time but no worries - we're hEAR to help! I am going under the assumption that your boys are thrill-seekers so here is what I'd recommend as "must dos" at the parks:

    Space Mountain
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    Haunted Mansion
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Astro Orbiter
    Splash Mountain
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin - yes - this is even fun for adults

    Test Track
    Mission: Space - make sure you read the attraction info on this - the spinning side is intense
