This is a question many first-timers ask.
If you are looking for that classic magical experience you see and hear about, Magic Kingdom is where you should head first. That moment, walking down Main Street towards Cinderella Castle in the distance along with the many classic attractions, restaurants, characters, and sites is truly magical.
Personally, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and then Animal Kingdom sounds like the perfect order, but everyone's interests differ.

Here's the Breakdown.

If you love the classic Disney touch, Magic Kingdom is your first destination.
If you love exploring technology, food, other countries, or all of the above combined, Epcot is for you.
If you love the Disney Major Motion Pictures, making films, exploring Hollywood, Star Wars, or just being a movie fanatic then hop on over to Hollywood's Studios to start your adventure.
And lastly, if you like learning and observing animals and wildlife, go explore Animal Kingdom to start off.

If Magic Kingdom is not your first choice, at least go sometime during your stay. It is the icon and heart of Disney magic.

Not sure? Check out the graphic on the Disney Parks Blog: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...u-visit-first/

Which park will you visit first? Tell us by replying or voting in the poll above! ‘‘‘‘‘‘‘

Hope this helped you plan your vacation!

Thanks-- we always stay either on the monorail loop or at an Epcot resort for the ability to walk to a starting point or walk to the room from a finishing point.

Epcot is my close second.

Depends on what day of the week you arrive in the World, where EMH is, and whether or not you're up for rope drop on day one or not

We have no particular rules on where to go first. We end up at whatever park is most convenient for our schedule.

I love that idea, just spur of the moment. Some people are a little more into having each day planned, but that's very cool!

Finally! I was waiting for the Epcot fans! Epcot is my second because MK is just so classic. I still can't get over WoL being almost completely gone (just about everything left has been taken away). :'( Great choice!
