    Ripsime Asked

    My family (husband & 2 daughters, ages 9 & 11) will be visiting Disneyworld for the fist time next weekend. Since there are different parks & a lot to do, any tips where to start from & what to do? We purchased the 2day park hopper tickets

    Hi, Ripsime!

    1st trip? Woo hoo!

    Crowd levels will be low but you won't be able to see it all in two days. Arrive at Park Open; head to the back of the park, where it's less crowded. Use Disney's FASTPASS Service as much as possible, picking up your first set on your way to the back of the park. (I've noted in bold the order in which we FASTPASS below.)

    Magic Kingdom
    : Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (3); Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (4); Enchanted Tales with Belle; Haunted Mansion; "it's a small world"; Jungle Cruise; The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh; Mickey's PhilharMagic; Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor; Peter Pan's Flight (2); Pirates of the Caribbean; Space Mountain (1); Splash Mountain; Stitch's Great Escape!; Under the Sea-Journey of The Little Mermaid; Main Street Elecrical Parade; Celebrate the Magic, Wishes nighttime spectacular.

    Epcot: Mission: SPACE (3); The Seas with Nemo & Friends; Soarin' (1); Spaceship Earth; Test Track (2); Turtle Talk With Crush; The World Showcase; IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Muppet*Vision 3D; Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (2); Star Tours; Toy Story Midway Mania (1);The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (3); Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage; Fantasmic!; Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!; Voyage of The Little Mermaid

    Disney's Animal Kingdom: DINOSAUR; Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (1); It's Tough to be a Bug!; Kali River Rapids; Kilimanjaro Safaris (2)

    Send another question and I'll detail dining options and more. What fun!
