    I rode it this summer! It's well worth the money, I think its $18 or so.... I went up at night time and if you try to time it right you can watch Illuminations happen from up in the sky, the sights are truly spectacular. I wish I could have ridden it in the day too.. def. worth the money

    Other simple but magica ideas
    - book a dinner at some bigger restaurant that you have never been too
    - pin trade with cast members

    I'd love to do the Future World tour. How long is that? Might try that when we go next Christmas.

    wdfan, have you done Characters in Flight? Is it worth the time? Looks kinda cool, but I wasn't willing to pull the trigger when we were there in 2010.
    The Future World tour is about 3 hours... we met our guide at 9am and finished around 1.15 though we did have a 20 min stop to get drinks. We definitely will be doing it again in 2012 as it is soo informative and in the evening you also you get to go in a reserved area for Illuminations :-). We went on the Land, Soarin, and the Sum of all Thrills. Normally they do not include Soarin but we asked nicely and we got to go on B 2 - seemingly the best row in the show. Some backstage areas too - depends on your viewpoint - I found seeing the glasses washing machine as an interesting side to WDW.

    How much is the future world tour?


    I am trying to find cheaper stuff due to the fact that my mom and dad are paying almost 300 dollars so I can get my senior pictures taken at Epcot.

    Future world is $55 plus tax I think.

    If funds are tight you can beat simple pleasures others have mentioned... Can't beat watching fireworks :-)

    Re: Extra Magical Things...

    We love Fantasma! And roasting marshmallows on the beach at night at Yacht Club. Oh, and watching the Electrical Parade in Magic Kingdom. Visiting the World's at night, especially during EMH! That's probably one of my favorite, to be walking around the Italy or France or England pavilion at night. Awesomeness.

    I'd just say the most magical part is not rushing things, taking time to savor everything, and enjoying your family. Disney is pretty great for that!
