    Going to WDW soon with my 6 and 4 year old boys- and husband 45- what are the top attractions in your opinion, that we should not miss in the World?
    Thanks

    According to my 6yo boy in order.....

    Mission space (green side no spinning) for the 6 yo, but probably not the 4yo
    Star Tours at the studios
    Pirates
    Indiana Jones Stunt Show at the studios
    your hotel pool or private house pool -- no joke. Kids would almost always rather take a break at 2 and head back to the pool for a couple of hours.
    Tom Sawyer Island (the fort and the caves)
    Soaring
    Mike's Comedy Show
    Mickey's Philharmagic
    Spaceship Earth at EPCOT

    I'll add Turtle talk at EPCOT. He liked it more when he was younger.
    Avoid stich's great escape. Terrible Terrible ride. Worst ever.

    The ones that instantly came to mind was Buzz in MK and Festival of the Lion King and Kilimanjaro Safaris in AK. I am sure there are plenty more, and of course if they are both 40" there are the more extreme rides.....

    Not sure if you will have time for a waterpark but we highly recommend Blizzard Beach! My boys loved it when they were young and still do (they are 12 and 15 now)!

    I, too, have boys ages 4 and 6. I researched and thought I had mapped out what they would enjoy. First ride we took them on was Stitch's Great Escape (WDW) ... and it scared the dickens out of both of them!!! They were screaming and crying "WE WANT TO GO HOME. WE DON'T WANT TO BE AT DISNEY ANYMORE!". We tried to talk them into riding something else with no luck. Luckily, some nice Disney employee saw us struggling and took our boys to the front of the BUZZ RANGER SPACE RANGER SPIN line. It was a HUGE hit and we rode it several times. BUSS LIGHTYEAR to the rescue! It saved our trip! I'd say, just take your kids on something very tame for a first ride ...e ase them itno it. My sister-in-law took her 6-year-old on SPLASH MOUNTAIN first and it scared him to death. My boys 4 and 6 LOVED SPLASH MOUNTAIN. I think they might have loved STITCH, too, had it not been first.
