9.) Tackle the Disney Mountains-Even if thrill rides aren't your cup of tea, we still encourage you to take on at least a few of the Disney mountains. They are some of Disney's best attractions and clearly demonstrate why Disney can't be topped. The Disney mountains are the Magic Kingdom's Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, and now the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train; as well as Animal Kingdom's Expedition Everest.
8.) Taste Beverly at Epcot's Club Cool-At Epcot's Future World, check out a little place called Club Cool. Inside you will find soda fountains offering different sodas from around the world and you can sample these soft drinks for free! Be sure to sample Italy's Beverly soda. It's famous among Disney World regulars!
7.) Ride "it's a small world", Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party, and Pirates of the Caribbean-While many Disney World attractions are famous, some are so well-known that they are pretty much a part of American pop culture and a Disney Vacation just isn't complete without
6.) Have a Dole Whip-Available only at the Magic Kingdom and the Polynesian Village Resort, a Dole Whip is pineapple-flavored soft-serve and is one of the most popular park snacks. You can just enjoy the soft-serve, or have it served in a cup of pineapple juice as a float. That's our favorite way to enjoy this frosty, tropical treat.
5.) Resort Hop-Even if you're not staying at a particular Disney World Resort hotel, you can still visit! This practice is called resort hopping, and we always take time during our vacations to hop to the other resorts to do a little shopping, dining, and to see what each resort has to offer. You see, Disney puts just as much magic and detail into their resorts as they do their parks, and we want to see it all! Plus, it's a great way to enjoy the Disney atmosphere while taking it easy.
4.) Watch Wishes-Disney World is famous for their fireworks and the Magic Kingdom's nightly display, shot over Cinderella Castle, is called Wishes. It's narrated by Jiminy Cricket and is incredible! Don't miss!
3.) Ride the Monorail-It's so popular, and classic, that some guests consider it a ride and not just a form of transportation! Be sure to ride at least once.
2.) Experience a Character Meal-A Character Meal is a nice, sit-down meal in either the parks or the resorts where Disney Characters stop and visit at each table while you eat. Character Meals are very popular, especially at restaurants offering unique themes and locations. In short, they are a must-do when visiting Walt Disney World and are a much better way to meet characters than standing in line in the heat.
1.)Wear Mouse Ears-It's an American tradition and an absolute must for anyone's first trip to Disney; and yes, that means adults too!
