We are going to be at WDW for 3 1/2 very short days. While we have to be at EPCOT for Candlelight Processional Friday night (our daughter's choir is participating, thus the reason for the trip) we have no other real plans. We are taking my in-laws who haven't been to Disney since the late 70's (are they in for a big surprise!). I, on the other hand, have been about 30 times since it opened in the early 70's. I want to show them a magical time but am afraid (since I've been there so many times) I'll overlook important "must sees" because I've already "been there, done that."

Help!

Please list YOUR family's musts for every park. It'll be a whirlwind trip for us (we usually stay at least a week) so I want to make sure I make the most of our precious time.

Thanks, everyone! :mickey:

Hello,

We are taking my mom and her finacee with us on this trip. It is the first time both of them have been since the early 80s. I think they are in for a very pleasant surprise.

Here are our "must dos" for every trip. I have excluded Space Ship Earth since it is being refurbed and won't be available for your trip.

Also, since you are going during the holiday, I would highly recommend checking out the Gingerbread House at the GF and the Christmas Decorations at the WL. I have heard those are the most see resorts during Christmastime and those are at the top of our upcoming trip:

MK:
Splash Mountain
Pirates of the Carribean
Peter Pan
Winnie the Poo
Haunted Mansion
Its a Small World After All (the in-laws will love this)
Wishes

Epcot:
Soaring
Test Track
Tour of the World Showcase (stop at UK for Boddington Beer, Margarita at Mexico anda Grey Goose Slushy at France - with the in-laws, you will need it)
Illuminations

MGM:
Great Movie Ride
Stunt Show
Tower of Terror
Rockin Rollercoaster
Fantasmic

Animal Kingdon
Dinosaur
The Safari
Kali Rapids
Its Tough to Be a Bug
EE (I haven't tried it yet but it is at the top of my list for this trip)

Have fun.
