Can anyone give insight what Country is the most fun to do? I have 2 girls ages 7 and 9. First time at Disney.

Yes, they named her after the dawn, for she filled their lives with sunshine.

My daughter just did Mexico and Norway. Mexico was a little cramped and noisy at the time, which made it slightly more challenging to not be in people's way, and to be able to hear the instructions. I can't really say which she enjoyed more though. She had fun at both countries!

My kids, 9 and 6, love Germany the best. Lots of interaction, objects moving and Doofenschmiirtz gets chased by a girl with a hammer on the clock outside.

We had a lot of fun in the UK, especially at the end, the last effect was really cool, and well hidden, it was actually a challenge to find, and kept it from getting overcrowded and ruining the surprise.

I would say that the UK and Japan were the most fun for us.

We did them all on our trip a couple of weeks ago. Be aware that once you do one, they might be begging for more. DH was as bad as DD. I kept having to tell him to be quiet and let DD do it instead of doing it himself. He was having too much fun with it! They were all a big hit with DD. Germany was probably the favorite. France and UK had some really neat stuff too.

My son's least favorites are Mexico and Norway -- a little too cramped..

We did France, Norway and Japan - they all were pretty awesome, but France was our favorite.

On my last trip with my kids, we did UK, France, Mexico, and Norway. I agree that Mexico was crowded, but they enjoyed it. France was our favorite. UK and Norway were a little confusing.

This is addicting for adults, just as much as for children! But it is worth doing. It's a great way to notice things in countries that you would just pass over, plus it keeps the kids entertained when there is not a whole lot for them to do in some of these countries.

We did Norway, Japan, and UK. Agree that Norway was really crowded and difficult to maneuver. Japan was also crowded, but didn't feel quite as cramped; really cool effects in that one. We liked the mission in the UK the best, though--nice set up and not so crowded. The CMs in the UK seemed more likely to 'play along' as well.
