Hi Stephanie! Don't worry, I completely understand- I haven't updated in a while either. Partly because I've been busy but mostly because I just don't have anything to report right now, lol.

Hi Hope! Thanks for understanding. I have a few posts I know I want to do, because I am still working on things! It is helping to fill the time before we leave.

I am beginning to think of park touring plans. It is making me really prioritize what I feel is going to the most fun for my family. Here’s a challenge for you all: for each park, name ONE ride/attraction/show you DO NOT miss. To make it a tad easier, you can do it one ride for yourself and one ride for your kiddos, for those of you with kids. So that is TWO attractions/rides/shows maximum for each park. Here is what I believe my list looks like:

MK
1. BTMRR, is my not-to-be-missed though Lilian will be going on it also since she is tall enough!
2. Meeting the Princesses, for Lilian—something she is talking about a lot right now.

EP
1. Soarin, my favorite!! (Lilian will be able to ride)
2. Nemo and Friends, Lilian

*Illuminations would be up on the list if I said more than one…I had a hard time deciding between Soarin’ and Illuminations.

AK
1. Safari, for me
2. Boneyard, Lilian LOVES playgrounds (though she may really like the trails too)

DHS
1. Fantasmic, though I have never seen the show, it is my not-to-be-missed for DHS
2. Playhouse Disney Live on Stage, Lilian

*I had a hard time deciding between Playhouse Disney Live on Stage versus VOTLM…they would be tied I think

Definitely not an easy task to narrow down to just a few things that are priorities in the parks—at least not for me! I am really looking forward to reading your lists!

Hmmm...I'll put DH down too b/c he is the only other person going with me.

MK:
Me-Splash Mountain
DH-Pirates

Wishes, I didn't see Wishes in December (only Holiday Wishes-which is different)

AK:
Me-FOTLK (this could count as a show)
DH-he could skip this park so nothing, I guess.

DHS:
Me-ToT
DH-would probably say the same as me

EPCOT:
Me & DH: Without a doubt SOARIN'

Great list! I really want to see FOTLK too--never seen it. I hope they are doing Wishes and Spectro again in the fall but I guess I would be fine with the other too though I am waiting to hear what others think about it.

Soarin' is my absolute favorite!! I could not imagine missing it and would love for us to be able to go on it more than once.

MK - Haunted Mansion - it's a classic! And unlike Splash and Space, I've never gone when it was down for refurb!

Epcot - Test Track - one of my favorite rides ever

DHS - Tower of Terror - I think this is my favorite ride in all of WDW

AK - Safari - how could you miss it? It kind of defeats the whole purpose of going to that park!

And WOOHOO for double digits!

Thanks for dancing with me Meghan! I have never ridden BTMRR at night--I will have to see if we can do that this go around. Is it running during MNSSHP? Soarin' is the best though I like TT too. Never ridden on EE as it was under construction when we went last time. Not sure if I am going to ride it this time either though I am sure the thrill seekers of the group will go on it.

Thanks for dancing with me Jenny! I don't think I am going to ride ToT this go around. That was our first Disney ride. I am not huge fan of dropping but I wanted to experience it at least once!

for double digits!

My must do's in each parK

MK: For me all I need to do is walk down Main Street and I'm happy.
For my kids: Big Thunder Mountain.

Epcot: For me Soarin
For my kids: The Character Connection The Fab 5 with only one line

Animal Kingdom: For both me and kids the Safari

DHS: I don't really have any must dos though my favorite ride is Tower of Terror. I skip it a lot of trips though because the kids won't ride it and I don't want to make everyone wait.
For my kids: Toy Story Mania. (I wish this ride wasn't such a pain to get on.)

ToT is a strange ride because it's so random. Sometimes you drop a lot and it seems like your falling far. But other times, it seems like you drop 2 feet!
