    Hi, Moms! Going to WDW for the 1st time with husband and kids (6-y-o twins, boy and girl). Can you provide me with tips and must sees for them? Also, we`ll stay for 9 days and haven`t decided yet between Art of Animation or a Downtown Disney Area hotel.

    What a great time you all will have at the Walt Disney World resort. Well, I would suggest that you start at the happiest place on earth, the Magic Kingdom. My kids loved seeing Cinderella Castle for the first time. It is so magnificent that it will set the perfect magical tone of the whole vacation. You should also pick up some some Fast Passes when you first arrive so that the kids can meet the big cheese himself, Mickey Mouse at the Town Square Theatre.As for attractions, the kids should be tall enough for the thrills of Space Mountain, the chills of the Haunted Mansion and the adventures found on the classic Jungle Cruise. For something a little different you ought to take in a viewing of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. As for where to stay, I am a big fan of the Disney's Art of Animation resort. While the resort is not open for a few months, it looks like it will be one of the best new resorts Disney has to offer.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
