Favorite thing to introduce someone to?

If you guys were taking a friend or family member to WDW who had never been, what would you be most looking forward to showing them? I'm having trouble isolating one thing so I might list a few:

Splash Mountain
Illuminations
Muppet Vision 3-D
Expedition Everest

I decided to go with one thing per park. What do you guys have and what obvious stuff did I forget?

I agree that Soarin' is always a big thrill, also I'd make them go on Mission:Space, but I wouldn't tell them anything about it beforehand... Wink

Also, the classics, like Haunted Mansion, would be really fun to ride with someone new.

Finally -- restaurants. Dole Whip, Yachtsman Steakhouse, California Grill, Sci-Fi Dine-In...

Wow, I spent forever thinking about this question. I guess to each of us Disney is different. I could not pick a single thing nor could I just pick a single thing from each park. To me it is the whole Disney experience. I honestly love everything about a Disney vacation. I guess the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of a Disney vacation is strolling down Main Street. To me, it really is like stepping back in time.

scrappy, I love the anticipation of going under the train tracks and coming out in the middle of town square and Main Street USA. No matter how cynical the person, that has to take your breath away!

I'm right there with you. It's hard to pinpoint a few things, but I think it's wonderful to introduce someone to the magic.

I'll never forget going on Soarin' with my mom for the first time. It's now her favorite ride and it was such a special experience to ride with her.

I loved it when my MIL went for the first time and jsut could not believe how beautiful the Polynesian resort is - she was under the impression Disney is for little kids silly

I think seeing Wishes is the BEST! muchlove

This upcoming trip of ours will be a 'first time' so to speak, for Cherie, my BFF. She has not been there since she was 12 - I am sooooo excited to take her EVERYWHERE! yay

I think that's a really important piece of info for a lot of the general public, UL -- Disney World is NOT JUST FOR KIDS! Smile

Totally! Unfortunately I don't think many people really get to see that unless they check out the resorts and such as well - only going to MK for the day doesn't really dispell the 'myth' laugh

So true. It's strange, but with my current memories of Disney World, I don't know why kids would even like it laugh The things we fill our trips with are so adult-oriented, I wouldn't know what to do if I were there with a toddler. UL, you're a multitasker!
