    I have visited Disney several times through my life. I am planning my children's first Disney vacation and I am overwhelmed at the amount of options. What are your top 5 must do experiences for children (ages 8dd / 6 ds)?

    Hello Kristy!

    How awesome to help plan your children first Walt Disney World vacation.

     At Magic kingdom my family must do activities include Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan´s Flight and a pirate adventure at The Pirates League.
    The Crystal Palace features great food and an awesome experience for the whole family.

    When visiting Animal Kingdom make sure to enjoy Kilimanjaro Safaris, Affection Section, Maharajah Jungle Trek and Pangani Forest Exploration Trails.
    Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids and It´s Tough to be a Bug! are a must for thrill riders.  Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo-The Musical and Flights of Wonder are excellent stage shows.
    Tusker House is another great restaurant with tasty food and fun Disney Characters.

    Epcot is a great park for a family day.  Enjoy Soarin! and Test Track before meeting your favorite Disney Characters at the Character Spot.  Later in the day (around 11:00 am) walk around the World Showcase as you taste meals and snacks from all over the world.  Make sure to visit the Japan store - my kids favorite stop at Epcot.
    I recommend an early breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall before park opening hour.

    At Hollywood Studios make sure to start the day at Toy Story Midway Mania! and by signing your children for the Jedi Training Academy.  At The Magic of Disney Animation your family will be able to learn how to draw Disney Characters.
    Fantasmic! is my favorite Disney night show.

    La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil is a beautiful and fun spectacle.

    Thank for visiting and we hope to hear again from you.
