    oooo you'll love that! we did that lunch some years ago although it was bitter sweet since it was supposed to be after a shuttle launch which sadly didn't happen, so everyone was a bit subdued

    Good question Keith,

    Let's see,
    Dole Whip at MK
    Laugh Floor - cracks me up
    TTA/WEDway - it is a must

    Take the monorail to one of the resorts to explore

    Take full advantage of the resort - hang by the pool, have a drink in the lobby near a fireplace or cozy spot

    Hit all our favorite rides: (splach mountain, haunted mansion, space mountain, ok...so I am weird...Peter Pan, IASW, TOT, RRC, GMR, Soarin, TT)

    Do the Safari

    Get our usual picture with Everest in the background

    Photobomb at least on unsuspecting group.

    People watch in all the parks.

    Man am I missing WDW right now!

    Not Disney I know but I must do WalMarts, even before I hit any parks. They have all kinds of stuff you can't get over here.

    At Disney it's always MK first. I've not been to Disney until I've seen that castle.

    Our main ADR used to be 'Ohana for dinner. We skipped a few times but have done it the last couple of trips. It always feels like Disney to me.

    People watching is a huge must do

    I avoid Walmart as much as I can - ever since watching 'Walmart - the High Price of Low Cost'. It's a shame, you're right it does have everything but I can't bring myself to go there anymore.

    My first evening is always spent with a Flipper's pizza!

    Must do? Hmmmmm…
    When staying at OKW, after check in but before going to the villa, visiting the Gurgling Suitcase for the initial "we're on vacation" Bud with lime. The only time I'll drink it. Don't know why it tastes good there and then, but it does!!

    In EPCOT if the line is not too long, Spaceship Earth. :yes: Walk the World Showcase, always.

    At AK, head right for the gorillas! FP for the safari on the way. Always!

    MK, again depending upon lines, IASW, PoC, Splash (as long as it's a good day and time to be wet) BTMRR, the steam train…

    Our "always" have changed over the years, but these seem to be the permanent "always."

    First morning is always breakfast at CP. Hopefully it's not an early morning and the joy of walking up a deserted Main Street always brings a tear to my eyes
