What is your ONE (or 2) must do in each park?

My husband and I are going to Disney for the first time since we were both about 6 in March. I am SO excited!!! I feel like a little kid counting down the days!

What are you must do secrets/tips for each of the parks?

Here's MY list.. keep in mind I have Disneyland in my backyard so I tend to do things that are either ONLY at WDW or better at WDW.. (there's a thread on THAT somewhere around here too..)

Epcot: Maelstrom (you know, because Norway is all about adventure), and walking around World Showcase.

HS: Tower of Terror and Mama Melrose

AK: Kilamanjaro Safari and Expedition Everest

MK: Mickey's Philharmagic and Monsters Inc Laugh Factory

I have problems with motion sickness, so my must-do list is a little tamer than most.

Epcot - Test Track
HS - Toy Story Midway Mania
AK - Festival of the Lion King
MK - Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean

And try to ride MK's Jungle Cruise after dark. In the daytime, it's a nice ride. At night, it becomes more of a creepy dark ride. Lots more fun after dark.

Ohhh this is a great thread topic!!

Magic Kingdom: We do Philharmagic first every trip..NOTHING gets you in a Disney mood like that show and two eat a Dole Whip. I prefer the vanilla/pineapple swirl. It will rock your world.

Epcot: Eat and drink around the world...and the Malestrom.

Hollywood Studios: Tower of Terror until my eyeballs fall out & Toy Story (get a FP asap!)

Animal Kingdom: We cannot miss EE and the Lion King live on stage is AMAZING.

Oh wow so many great ideas!
We like:
Epcot:mission space(if a bit scared try the green side first I did found it too tame and went for the orange and loved it)
The Chinese pavillion has a fabulous movie...it makes me want to go there

MK:Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion

Hollywood Studios: Rockin Rollercoaster, Tower of Terror(my husband's choice..I will never go on this one),Indiana Jones
show, The Great Movie Ride( the first time we went on this we had this amazing cast member guide
he really made us believe he Loved movies)

Animal Kingdom:Pangani trail(the gorillas were amazing to see even saw a baby chase a rabbit), It's tough to be a bug(can be scarey for little ones heck it was scarey for me yikes! But amazing at the same time how they can make a cartoon so real...I mean really they are cartoon bugs aren't they????We still haven't gone on very many rides here as this park is always packed and it feels like the hottest park to go to.

This is where I am, I've done the green side a couple of times now, but I'm still a little chicken to do the orange side. How big of a difference is it?

The "Orange" side is EXTREMELY INTENSE! Two words come to mind when I think of this, "Vomit Ride". Major motion sickness when you try that side. If you have a strong stomach then you'll be okay. This is a "Skip It" for us. We'll stick to the "Green" side.

My sentiments exactly..

I forgot to include Rope Drop at each park! Get there 30 minutes before the park opens! 15 if you want to push it clapping And if you can't do it at each park, at the very least, hit Magic Kingdom's!

And I agree, if you have any kind of motion sickness, forget the orange side. Sick

This is my very first post. My husband and I only did MK and Epcot in Sept. and are going back in mid-December for Christmas. We'll be doing all 4 parks this time, so thanks for the thread.

Epcot: Soarin' and Spaceship Earth (because it's a classic)
MK: Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Carribean

Actually I didn't find it as bad as everyone says. Have you ever been on a gravitron ride at a fair where it spins and you are pushed against the wall. I compare it to that. The orange side has the same movie but more sensation of being pushed into your seat.I think the movie before hypes it up way too much by talking about motion sickness and the sick bags and stuff. I mean it really scared me but sometimes it helps to remember it is only a movie you are watching and really you are just spinning to create the sensation of flying. Just to let you know though I am a big chicken ...one time I had a panic attack waiting in line for space mountain( I did ride the rockin roller coaster before that and couldn't get calmed down from it). I did fine on the orange and I am sure you will find if you try you will be to.
