Stitch's Great Escape is the only attraction that I would rule out all together although there are many I might skip if we were low on time. The ones I would never skip are:

Soarin(best ride ever in the history of rides IMHO)
Turtle Talk with Crush
It's a small world(tradition more than anything)
Buzz
TSM
Wishes

It'll be our first time (2 boys, 9 and 12, and my wife and my dad), but based on what I've read here, I feel pretty comfortable skipping:

MK- Stitch, Jamboree, Pooh, Teacups, Small World, Speedway, Tom Sawyer Island, Laugh Floor, Liberty River Boat (Jungle Cruise IF and only IF we need a break), Carosel of Progress, Fantasyland (may go have a peak at Gaston's Tavern) will be dissapointed to miss Splash Mountain..

Epcot- Captain EO, Gran Fiesta Tour, American Adventure, Turtle Talk.

HS- Voyage of Little Mermaid, Honey I shrunk the Kids, Idol, Magic of Animation.

AK- Boneyard, Whirl, Spin, Camp Minney Mickey, Rafiki Planet Watch, will be dissapointed to miss Kali Rapids.

This should free us up considerably..

Hall of Presidents, Country Bear Jamboree & Carousel of Progress are all ones we usually skip...even with plenty time there, we still choose to ride other rides multiple times then go to any of those.

Why would you skip Splash & Kali?

I wouldn't skip Art of Animation or PW...my kids are 7, 14 & 16 and those are a couple of their faves!!

I'd skip the Circle of Life show in the Land at Epcot.

I think everything else is worth at least one go through.

If I ever decide to sit through Country Bear Jamboree again I'd like for someone to smack me upside the head.

My DH and I call this nap time!!!
My kids do not nap easily, so this ride is a great chance to slow down and reset.. For those under 2 they will most likely fall asleep!
Also PEOPLE MOVERS!! If there is not wait they will let you stay on the ride..
DD fell asleep and we rode around and around for over 90mins! Best ride ever..
But can totally skip if you do not need a nap...

quite a few on that list I wouldnt skip unless I simply didnt have time. Grand Fiesta rarely has a huge wait and is a pleasnt ride. jungle cruise esp at night is nice and especially romantic, winnie the pooh is one of the best rides in fantasy land..laugh floor grows on you..dino whirl is a blast esp if you like coasters

Yeah, maybe when the sun goes down.. Good idea!

The rest, I can't handle spinning.. I'll TRY Buzz, Space, etc. but I'll have to power through it..

Definitely Stitch, not only was it stupid, it scared the living daylight out of my son.
