We just got back from two weeks in Orlando! In Animal Kingdom, don’t miss the safari tour, and the Lion King show-best actual show in all of Disney!  In Epcot, it is worth it to plan to stay until the end of the night and watch the Illuminations display. In Magic Kingdom- be prepared for it to be geared towards the princess/prince younger audience. We were a bit disappointed by Magic Kingdom but the Monsters inc. show in Tomorrowland (part of Magic Kingdom) was very cute. In Hollywood studios, the Tower or Terror ride was a big hit for me, my SO loved the Aerosmith Roller coaster. The best part of that park is the Fantasmic show, absolutely amazing-we heard great reviews and left it for our last night there and made it so special! I don’t think you would need a full 7 days there-we bought 7 day passes and ended up not using a day. I would highly recommend heading to Universal Studios for a day (or two) they have less theming than Disney but more rides and attractions for people over the age of 14.

The World Showcase in EPCOT. It’s about half of the park and you CAN spend a day there! OMG, I can’t even stress how awesome it is.

Have fun!!

On a side note, I would highly recommend renting lockers. They run about 7 or 8 dollars a day, but bringing a sweater, water and some snacks really helped-once the sun went down it got quite chilly on some nights and the food prices are pretty ridiculous so we found it was easy to meet up at the locker and grab our own munchies etc. Also purchase ponchos from the dollar store and leave them in the locker as well-some rides you get so wet that even on a hot day we didn’t dry completely and it made walking around uncomfortable- and with a group of 8 to buy ponchos inside the park would have cost us $65 vs $8 at a dollar store.

I used to love the epcot world showcase when I was a kid.. but then when I grew up and actually traveled to those places … it kinda showed how “sterotypical” it was lol! If you are a traveler I wouldn’t recommend epcot.. it would just annoy you lol!! I do however.. love the ‘its a small world’ ride in magic kindgom… Fiance and I usually try to name the countries of the little dancing kids! I am not much for roller coasters.. so I couldn’t help in that arena.. but the disney water parks are AMAZING. Seriously, the best waterparks around.

When you’re at Hollywood Studios, try and get a reservation for 50s Prime Time Cafe. it’s a ‘family’ restaurant in the 50s all decorated like a house – you get scolded if you put your elbows on the table and don’t eat your greens. find youtube videos – it’s amazing.

also Tower of Terror was my favourite thing EVER.

um everything? Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom, the Haunted House in the Magic Kingdom, Rockin Rollercoaster in Hollywood Studios and Soarin in Epcot.

The only thing I refuse to get on anymore is Its a Small World in the Magic Kingdom. That ride is out of control annoying.

@MrsNeutrino:  DH and I weren’t really wowed with Epcot either.

@MissLibra:  Ditto the cheapie poncho’s. It down poured for about 15 minutes on day and Dirty Delete and I put on the pnchos and went on the rides with no lines since everyone was under shelters:)

OP: We went as a family with kids so a lot of our stuff was for them. My favorite ride in Magic Kingdom would have to be Space Mountain it is a really good ride.

 At ANimal Kingdom we had breakfast at Tusker House before the park opened (with reservations) and got to be on one of the first safari’s. All of the animals were up and moving and sometimes you get to see them getting fed,they say first thing in the mrning is best. I was really disapointed Kali Rapids was closed so we didn’t get to try it, but Everest was fun. The Lion King show is awesome.

Soarin at Epcot is ok, test track is ok.

I really loved Downtown Disney at night. There are tons of musicians and little performers along the path. It is a great atmosphere!

The fireworks at Epcot and Hollywood studios.  Also the back lot tour at Hollywood Studios.  We are leaving Sunday for 12 days.  Not staying on property but will be there.  I’ll let you know.

 

 have been told to wear my ears and pin.  They don’t have the wedding pins at the parks anymore so we bought ours on ebay for cheap money 🙂

I would recommend taking some time for Universal Studios and Sea World too.  I love the Journey to Atlantis ride there!

@MrsNeutrino:  hahaha we have literally the exact opposite taste of Disney! I hate the water parks, could care less about small world, and spend 90% of my trip in Epcot!  I grew up near a really great water park though, so Disney’s just don’t appeal to me.

@bookworm88:  I don’t know about 4 days but I love Epcot. We were there during the food and wine festival and spent half the day drinking wine/eating.

Also, if you want pics with characters (I have no shame) Epcot is your best bet.

Oh DisneyQuest in Downtown Disney is SO MUCH fun haha. Its a giant arcade type thing but they have this pirates of the caribbean “ride” where you go into a little room with three screens and have to shoot canonballs to take down other ships. While you’re in line you can see people on the “ride” and you’re like “Why are all these idiots screaming and running around” and then its your turn and you do the exact same thing. Its a good option if theres a really rainy day while you’re there.
