  • Taking Newbies to Disney World

    OK so in three days I'm going to WDW with my brother, sister, brother-in-law and my nephew all who have never been. This will be my third trip to Disney World but it has been awhile since my last visit. I know all the big must ride rides and must see shows, but does anyone know of any lesser well known things to see and do at Epcot, MK, AK and the Studios? All of them are big Disney fans and I want to show them some of the things that may not be as well known, but are still cool and fun to see.

    Magic Kingdom: Grab a few coins and check out the machines located in the Train Station on the 2nd floor as you enter the park. It's the same machines as found over at Disneyland's Arcade but there are only a small handful to enjoy at MK's Train Station. The same machines can also be found at the Boardwalk hotel.



    Epcot: Explore Canda Pavillion and check out the new film. Been to Disney World 6 times and always skipped the Canda Pavillion and just on my last trip experienced the garden and water fall hidden behind the main buildings. And inside the France buildings, to the right side, you'll find a Beauty and the Beast character meet and greet that has stain glass windows as seen in the movie as well as the flower in the vase from the movie.

    Animal Kingdom: Take a ride on the railroad transportation to that planet watch place. The end destination is a quick walkthrough and a waste of time for those without kids but the train ride is pretty fun, I love trains at Disney parks so I just have to ride them all.

    Hollywood Studios: Watch Muppet Vision 3D without the glasses and see for the first time all the great hidden theatre props and characters all around you as the show runs.


    Transportation: Here's one thing I always so when I got the parks with first timers, especially when we stay on property. Head from your hotel to Epcot early in the morning, right when all the parks start to open. Once at Epcot, if you have park hopper tickets, ride Spaceship Earth and then high tail it out of Epcot and get on the monorail. Take it the transportation station and then from there either ride the monorail through to the hotels, maybe stopping in one or all the hotels to show off the Deluxe hotels

    ... or take them on the giant ferry boat that takes you directly to Magic Kingdom. Fun way to show new guests the means of transportation that Disney World has to offer.

      Epcot: Try ckecking out Off Kilter or British Invasion, they are great entertainment. Eat at San Angel Inn.

      MK: Don't forget the Wedway People Mover

      DAK: Take the train to the Conservation Station. Don't miss Festival of the Lion King.

      Definately do the Monorail. Go the Animal Kingdom Lodge, try to eat at Boma.

        If staying on property your nephew might enjoy the arcades in the hotel as well. We had a blast one afternoon trying to get enough tickets to win a prize and just goofing off in there.

                  I just have one thing to add...

                  Ask to sit in the front of the monorail, it's a better experience and the view can't be beat!
