    Hi, my daughter & I are not really into rides, which theme parks at WDW would be good to go to We already have free tickets to Universal and Islands of Adventure. 3D rides ok, just not roller coasters etc. Want to see characters & entertainment

    Hi, Jane!

    Every theme Park at Walt Disney World offers a variety of live entertainment, high-quality shows, and interactive experiences. You'll have trouble finding which one NOT to visit!

    Start with Epcot, Here, you can explore all of the different countries of World Showcase, some of which offer movies, some of which offer live culturally-specific entertainment. Make sure to grab a Times Guide when you arrive; that will provide you with the most up-to-date listing of what you'll be seeing that day! And don't forget about Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, a glorious multimedia fireworks show held every night over World Showcase Lagoon.

    Animal Kingdom highlights some of the best in live theater. Both Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo: The Musical are Broadway-caliber shows, featuring great special effects, music, makeup, costumes, and so on. And while you're there, stroll the beautiful acreage and enjoy the animals! There's Rafiki's Planet Watch, a huge space where you can learn more about our ecosystems, and meet some of the species we share our earth with.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios brings to life some favorites for young and old: Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular and Lights! Motors! Action! Extreme Stunt Show (starring Lightning McQueen) break down some Hollywood special effects secrets for the audience. The kids of Disney Channel rock the streets with high energy music and dancing, and fan favorites Mulch, Sweat, and Shears bring the beats to the Streets of America.

    If you have further specific questions on any of these, feel free to drop me a line!

    See you later, celebrator,
