    Talking What's The First Ride/Attraction You Go To In Each WDW Park?

    I'm a huge WDW fan. Everytime I go to the parks, each park, I have a tradition, I have to ride a certain first or see an attraction first before anything other ride/attraction.

    Magic Kingdom - Peter Pan's Flight [my mother loves this ride and when she is unable to go I make it a tradition to ride it first in her honor. Of course when she's at the MK with me, we just HAVE to ride it first. No if's, and's or but's]
    Animal Kingdom - Africa [the shops, the live entertainment, the buildings]
    Epcot - Spaceship Earth [no matter how long the line is, I'll wait for it and it must be my first experience when revisiting Epcot]
    MGM Studios - The Pin Trading Store Under the Hat [I have to get a pin from this location and I where it the rest of the day, another tradition]


    What are your first ride/attraction must do's before anything else.

    Interesting thread!
    Magic Kingdom- First attraction is probably VMK Central
    Epcot- It used to always be Spaceshipe Earth, but for some reason we didn't ride it last year and we went to Innoventions! first.
    Animal Kingdom- I'm not exactly sure on this, but I think we get fastpasses for Kilamanjaro Safaris.
    Disney MGM Studios- No clue haha

    Nice thread.

    MK: Adventureland - I always go left first, away from the crowds. LOL So anything there really.
    Epcot: Spaceship Earth - Depends on crowd and time of day.
    MGM Studios: Star Tours - Going again'st the morning crowds.
    Animal Kingdom: Everest (of course)

    Re: What's The First Ride/Attraction You Go To In Each WDW Park?

    Some days I'll leisurely work my way into the park. When I'm in a rush, this is what I'll hit:

    MK: Astro Orbiter - no one goes to this ride first thing, so there is never a line, unlike later on in the day
    Epcot: Soarin'
    AK: E:E for FP, then Africa for the safari
    MGM: No particular first. Maybe ToT for FP.

    Re: What's The First Ride/Attraction You Go To In Each WDW Park?

    I honestly don't have as much of a set standard of attractions I hit first at WDW compared to DL, except for Everest! Maybe that's because my approach to visitng the parks has really changed in past years as I've slowed myself down to the pace of the days of ticket books.

    DAK : Everest + FP and Safari
    MK: Whatever direction I take, but I usually linger on Main Street for some time - so I guess that's my attraction?
    Epcot: Must ride Space Ship Earth, but usually never ride it first unless it's during a park hop day.
    Disney-MGM Studios: I love the atmosphere. I usually get FP for Coaster and enjoy myself as I bounce from attraction to shows, etc.

    For me:

    MK - The Haunted Mansion
    EP - Currently, it's Soarin' but only because of the ridiculous waits the rest of the time. It used to be SSE.
    DS - Rock n' Rollercoaster or TOT
    AK - Everest
    - Horizonsfan

    MGM - Great Movie Ride (Great setup for this park)

    EPCOT - Spaceship Earth (Another great setup)

    Magic Kingdom - The Tomorrowland Transit Authority.

    Epcot - Spaceship Earth.

    Disney-MGM Studios - Almost always the Lights, Motors, Action Stunt Show.

    Animal Kingdom - For years it was Tarzan Rocks, but since it left it was a toss up between the Village Beatniks and the Tree of Life itself.
