What is everyone's recommendations for must do's and must things to see and visit at the parks that probably aren't as well known to a first timer like myself.

Thanks for any tips!

Waterparks! I had dismissed them a bit in my planning but honestly all our family enjoyed our 2 waterpark days and we definetly needed the slower pace! Take breaks! Sleepy Hollow for waffles 😊

Far too many things to list, however my best recommendation is not to try to do absolutely everything.
Take time to lap up what you are doing and everything else can fit into the next trip
Cinnamon Rolls in Gaston's Tavern in MK are a must

The TTA in tomorrowland is a great ride when you need a little cool off. It's not a thrill ride, it's very retro, but as you whizz along you get a nice breeze and a 5 minute sit. Plus you get to see a model of what EPCOT could have been- the vision of a community!

Don't dismiss it because it's not a rollercoaster

Oh also- try and look for the Steamboat Willie hidden Mickey coming out of the little mermaid in new fantasyland- it's very clever (look it up online before you go)!

Take the train round the MK park - we always go round at least once, you get to sit and relax and see so much.

We take the train in AK too - to Rafikis planet watch - even when the parks are rammed it seems a quiet little oasis - with characters (Rafiki himself, Chip&Dale) that have short lines.

We are major fans of the TTA and sometimes ride it a couple of times in a day. We also loved Carousel of Progress which we experienced for the first time last year.

TTA and the Carousel of Progress are two of my must-dos on a MK day! I just love the Tomorrowland music loop as you go around in your car.

here are a few things and it may get long very long

yes Carousel of Progress is a must chill watch a show in a comfy seat and great air con
the people mover is a must too
its a small world is a must (still cant get the song out of my head )
and there more and more

here some things to say to the character

1. Ask Minnie if she got a wedding ring yet... told her it's okay because my son said he would marry her

2. Ask Chip and Dale if they are squirrels...they go nuts!

3. Tell Captain Hook... TICK TOCK TICK TOCK!

4. Call Chip...Dale and Dale...Chip... very very funny reaction!

5. When you see Cruella... BARK!
We got a cute reaction from Eeyore when I asked him if he was sure he hadn't lost his tail.
Call Chip and Dale squirrels, or gophers or rats - they'll get humorously indignant!
Ask Donald Duck where Mickey Mouse is... talk about indignant!

My DS (4) asked him this last year and Donald stomped his foot, turned on his heel and stormed off! The look on DS's face was PRICELESS!

Then, Donald came back and gave him a very loud raspberry and DS still talks about the day he made Donald Duck mad...almost a year later!
At a character meal, I always ask them if they cooked the dinner. If Chip tells me he did, I'll say that Dale is taking the credit for it.
I have heard if you call Chip or Dale Alvin or Theodore they really flip out!
If you see the Mad Hatter, ask him for his "autograph". He will draw a picture of a car and a graph. If you want his "signature", you must ask for it, or ask him to sign his name.

Call one of the 7 Dwarfs by the wrong name, very funny, especially if all 7 are present.

Cruella asked DS if he had ever thought of a job as a dog catcher. That was a funny conversation.
We asked Chip and Dale how to tell them apart. We got a very lively discussion about how each is more handsome then the other

here are a few things for free in epcot

go to club cool free drinks (try the Beverly it nice )

phone booths in England at EPCOT
407-827-9861 - This is the Right booth
407-827-9862 - This is the Left booth
407-827-9863 - This is the Centre booth

Talking Water Fountains - there are three at Epcot: Outside Mouse Works shop; behind Innoventions West, near the restroom, between Innoventions and Honey I Shrunk the Audience Pavilion; and near the play fountain between Future World and World Showcase.
Some brooks babble, but at Epcot the babbling is done by some of the enchanted drinking fountains! You can find at least three fountains that will talk back to you: 1) Face the "Fountain of Nations" with Spaceship Earth behind you. The talking water fountain is outside Mouse Gear, on your left. 2) There's another to the right of the magic/play fountain between World Showcase and Future World. 3) The third is behind Innoventions West, near the restroom.

on the subject of water fountains
if you want a drink or fill your bottle up use the kids one you will find it cooler water

will leave it at that for now (brain overload)
