    We always go to Magic Kingdom first. The rest of the order is MGM, EPCOT, and Animal Kingdom.

    Ok, I voted for DHS, but I need to explain. Since I'm flying down there, I almost never have time for a full day on my first day. On my last trip I decided to hit DHS (MGM then) first so I could ride Tower of Terror, Rockin' Roller Coaster, and catch Fantasmic. It was a short, but exhilarating way to start my trip!

    We usually have a dining ADR the first day we get in and cannot ever seem to get there any earlier than 1.

    So we always go to Animal Kingdom first to get a quick ride on Expedition Everest in before going back to shower and get ready to eat

    When I was a kid and during my Honeymoon (but never both at the same time) we started with the Magic Kingdom. Of course, it's the traditional place to begin.

    But now, my wife and I have grown into EPCOT people, and we like to start there.

    i plan my trip around the extra magic hours. whichever park has extra hours is the one i go to on that day, so the first day is different for me every time.

    This past time we planned according to the EMHs (Epcot, MK, and then DHS), but normally we do Epcot first, then DHS, and then MK. The reasoning behind it is that the MK is my favorite place in the whole world and I like to build up to it instead of doing it on the first day and then going to the "lesser" parks, although it's hard to call them lesser because I love them all. We also decided not to do AK everytime because we don't feel it's entirely worth it and we pretty much only do each park once (sometimes going to Universal) because of our budget.

    Well, I always check EMH before I leave, and I try to use 'em...but it's really hard to not hit MK on your first day. There's no better way to start a WDW vacation than by "walking right down the middle of Main, Street, U.S.A.!!!!"

    I do that too and Len is usually right! But, I still start with MK. After Day 1, I follow the crowd calendar for the rest of the trip. I might try to get to the MK on the last day too regardless of what the crowd calendar says--I just get there first thing in the morning.

    MK is definitely the way to go for a first-day experience... nothing beats the sight of Cinderella's Castle and the looming grandeur of Space Mountain.
