  • I can't pinpoint one specific thing...because it's all wonderful! I LOVE DISNEY WORLD. I met my husband there in line for Space Mountain 22 years ago! We've been back with our kids (teens..now) several times.

  • I grew up just 30 min from Disney World, so I love it!! I don't know if you are going to all the parks or just a few but my favorites are the Magic Kingdom (for the kids) & Animal Kingdom. I can't imagine going to the Magic Kingdom and not riding It's a Small World or the TeaCups or some of the "originals". They're just like "magic". Oh and the Lion King show (if it's still showing, I haven't been in a few years) is really one of the best -- that and Beauty and the Beast. I swear I'm really NOT a "Disney freak", but I do love the parks. Have fun!

  • I've only been there once but i would also definately recommend magic kingdom and animal kingdom. We went to Epcot and i wasn't to impressed, but i think epcot had this really cool marine life thing, but other than that i didn't really enjoy epcot, it just wasn't my cup of tea. If we went back i would go see epcot again but only if we had an extra day with no plans, i definately wouldn't cut out plans to go see it. But animal kingdom was awesome and we all wanted to spend multiple days at the magic kingdom because it seems like you just can't get it all done in 1 day.

  • We go every year, sometimes 2 or 3 times, my husbands from Tampa. Magic Kingdon is AWESOME!!! If your kids are old enough...Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain are musts. Though, I still really enjoy Peter Pan, Buzz Lightyear and Haunted Mansion. Oh, and the just redid Pirates of the Carribean to include Jack Sparrow...its pretty cool. Epcot is more for adults, not a lot of rides there. I highly reccomend NOT going on Mission to Space or Mars whatever its called. OMG, talk about sick, lol. And I don't even get motion sickness, but I did on that ride. Animal Kingdom is great, I've only been there once...but, we plan on going back in May. Have a GREAT time!!!

  • We were at Disney a month ago for my five year olds B-day....We had a great time..We stayed at the all star resorts which is not the best Disney resort but it served our needs. I have two small kids and if you do, honestly doing magic kingdom and hollywood studios is really all you need to do. Everything else is more adult or for older kids. We spent three days at magic kingdom and still dint see everything...IF you have small ones just PM me and I can give you more info. Good luck!!

  • We've been there in December, besides Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom if you have kids, go to see Epcot at night when the lights are all lit up, there's an archway between epcot and the nations that is wonderful. Be sure to make dining reservations early if you plan to do any sit-down meals. I like staying on site because we can come and go as we please without having to drive.

  • If you go to the Magic Kingdom make sure you see the Mickey Mouse 4-D show. I can't think of the exact name of it, but it is in Fantasy Land. Also go on the carousel, because there is no other like it. Make sure you stay for the firework show at night called Wishes..it will make you cry with joy it is so beautiful!!
