We couldn't pick top 3 overall. Maybe a top 3 in each park, our must do attractions... (keeping your kids in mind):
AK: Safari, Tough to be a Bug, anything watching/near animals
MK: Pirates, Mansion, (for you I'd include Small World.. even just thinking about it, I can't get the song out of my head
)& Jungle Cruise
Studios: Toy Story Mania, Muppet Vision 3D, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (new & wasn't open the last time we were there; check height restriction)
EPCOT & World Showcase: Illuminations, Spaceship Earth (aka 'Golf ball'
), Turtle Talk with Crush (Crush interacts with the kids
Not going to justify our choices, so don't ask!
Be aware, there are tons of other things for young and old, but you are
doing your homework and are well aware of that - aren't you?
And, BTW, our first trip we drove in 2 days from Southern Michigan to WDW.
2 adults, 2 kids (4 and 8), in a not very new 2-door Ford Escort and stayed at the Poly.
At the end of day 2, we virtually stumbled out of the car, staggered into the lobby, our jaws dropped, and I thought 'Holy ****' this is awesome but where do we go and what do we do? We felt totally out of place.
After food and a good night's rest, it all came together the next morning at breakfast in the 'Tangeroa Terrace.' We reviewed our meal reservations and our attraction plans and had several wonderful Disney Days!
Then it was back to reality in the Escort and a l-o-n-g drive home.
