I am planning my first trip to Disney World in Florida with my 11 year old daughter. What are the must do and must sees? We want to go to Epoch and DisneyWorld and one other park. Where should we stay?

You and your daughter are going to have such a great time at Walt Disney World. I would suggest that you stay on site at a Disney property. There are so many reasons for this. Great transportation to the parks and resorts, access to extra magic hours and so much more. I love taking the monorail and the boats to the parks. It's totally neat. I think that your plan for visiting the Magic Kingdom and Epcot is a great idea. At the Magic Kingdom make sure you say hello to Mickey Mouse at the Town Square Theater on Manin Street U.S.A. It is a great way to make some quality memories. Both Magic Kingdom and Epcot are classic parks that you both will enjoy. At Epcot I would make a point of visiting the World Showcase Pavilion. My family spent an entire day just exploring the countries. Make a point of seeing the visual sensation at night that is Illuminations. On the water at night it is a must see. As for the other park, I think your child would love Disney's Animal Kingdom. I was just there in April and it was so much fun. Between the awesome animals everywhere, to the amazing attractions like Expedition Everest, to the spectacular shows, this is a great place for adventure. I would make a point of watching the Festival of the Lion King. It is totally audience interactive and I think the both of you will come out amazed and smiling. It really is that cool. I hope this provides you some insight on how to have a fantastic vacation. Feel free to ask me for more tips. I hope to see you at the parks soon.
