    The first two times I've been, it was the standard order:

    Magic Kingdom
    Epcot
    Disney's Hollywood Studios (obviously Disney-MGM Studios at the time)
    Disney's Animal Kingdom

    But my upcoming trip, we're switching it up:

    Epcot
    Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Magic Kingdom

    Most reason is simply our dining reservations. But I wanted to go to Epcot first to make up for me not being there during the 25th Anniversary.
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!

    We usually hit MK first, but if we're not able to, we hit Epcot, the last park we hit is Animal Kingdom, it's our least favorite.

    On our first full day there, we always go to MK. But we like to stay in Epcot resorts so that is always the first spot we head when we get in during the afternoon!

    Last time we went, we did Epcot first and then planned to the evening EMH at Magic Kingdom. It was different. Although I had a great timein Epcot, I was anxious to head to Magic Kingdom. Pirates of Caribbean was calling my name! I guess I don't feel like I've arrived until I see the MK.

    We always go to the Magic Kingdom first, and it's certainly my favorite park.

    I said Magic Kingdom as it doesn't seem like a trip to "The World" unless we're go there first! That and we always have lunch ADRS for Crystal Palace on our first day there to say hello to Pooh and company!

    Just walkign my little girls to the center of Main Street for that first glimpse of Cinderella's Castle for the first time each trip really sets the mood for me!

    I thought I had already voted on this thread! I would say Magic Kingdom is where I would like to go first but this next trip it will be AK and the next, will probably be Epcot. My son asked for Test Track to the first ride we go on.

    Always MK first. In fact, the last 3 trips have been the same order: MK, Epcot, HS, AK.
    MK was the first and is part of Walt, so it always feels the most magical to me.

    That's the same exact order we do the parks! Of course after hitting them all the first time we start to mix it up. Although I will say we tend to spend very little time in AK for some reason.

    I usually go to Epcot first since we usually arrive late afternoon. We get something to eat and watch Illuminations. The first full day, however, we always go to the Magic Kingdom

    It sometimes depends upon my mood when I get to WDW. Usually out of tradition I go to MK, but once and a while I rebel and go to EPCOT

    We usually use the Unofficial Guide's crowd calendar and determine it based on the day we arrive...that said, this year we're breaking with tradition and going to the Magic Kingdom first for a few reasons:
    * It will be January, and from the sounds of it the parks aren't even up to typical levels on most days.
    * We're staying only one night at the Contemporary before moving over to the All Star Suites, and none of us has ever gotten to go to MK on the monorail straight from our hotel so we want to have that experience.

    I figure this should be a fun start this time...fly in, stay at the contemporary, breakfast at Chef Mickey's and then straight to MK.

    We have a second day at MK planned for later in the trip, so if it ends up being crazy, we're not completely out of luck.

    Same here - for me, once I see Illuminations the clock is set back and I'm 7 again. I can pretty much go anywhere after that, but the last time I was in WDW we did the Magic Kingdom the next day and it was great! It was like that feeling of coming home and seeing a parent and then seeing an old friend next day.

    There are some interesting responses on here and the reasons behind them.
    We've always gone to DHS first to go to Fantasmic that 1st night. We also go to DHS 1st because it is our least fave and we dont want to go to MK for a half day. Also with the limited showing of Fantasmic it's not showing our 1st night there.

    That being said, this January we are breaking "tradition". We are going to DAK 1st and since it closes early we are going to DTD for dinner. Then we are going to MK on our 1st full day! Can't wait!
