    We've planned a short trip (3/2 -3/6), 1 day at MK /1 day at Epcot. Kids' 1st trip to Disney (age 7). Other than character dining (already booked) what are the truly can't miss attractions? Also, what will the crowds be like at that time? Any o

    Hi there Desiree!

    How exciting to be planning your first Walt Disney World vacation! It sounds like you are off to a great start with your vacation planning.  Earlier this year, I visited during the first weekend of March and found the parks to be moderately crowded. That being said, we were able to experience everything on our "must do" list.  I would definitely recommend utilizing Disney FastPass+ service to decrease your wait for many of the most popular attractions or experiences. Follow the link I have provided to learn more.

    My list of can't miss attractions at Epcot includes: Test Track, Spaceship Earth, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Soarin', which unfortunately, will be closed for refurbishment in March. I also highly recommend seeing the Voices of Liberty perform in The American Adventure.  At Magic Kingdom Park, my list includes: "it's a small world," Peter Pan's Flight, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Don't miss the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade or Wishes nighttime spectacular. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to visit me again with any additional questions that you may have. I would love to assist you further in the planning of a magical first trip, Desiree!

    Happy Planning,
