Disney World in Two Days?

I’m visiting Disney World this weekend. Since I’m leaving this afternoon and will return on Monday, I will only have a little over two days to see the entire theme park. I’d love to say that I’m going to buy a Park Hopping pass and set some kind of speed record racing through all four themed areas — Magic Kingdom*, Epcot*, Disney-MGM Studios*, Disney’s Animal Kingdom* — but I’m not. Sorry.

I’ve written down a few things I’d like to do, but I think I need more ideas:

  • Ride Space Mountain,
  • See the fireworks display,
  • Find out why The Little Mermaid hasn’t been replying to my letters.

If you only had two days to see Disney World, where would you go?
Are there any rides you’d have to do? Spaceship Earth? The Haunted Mansion? Tower of Terror?

Is there a Disney hotel that’s your favorite? (I tried to get reservations for the Animal Kingdom Lodge*, but it was completely booked.)

* This is a Disney site with an annoying background soundtrack that starts automatically. Turn your speakers down!
