Must does for first time at Walt Disney World Orlando

Just booked a two week holiday in July 2015 and would be keen to know what attractions/activities are must-do for a 9 year-old who loves all things Disney.

Thanks in advance.

There is plenty of videos on you tube if you search "must do disney.with stacey" Kids used to watch it all the time when they came back from first visit to remind them of it all. I think it may have been updated since we last watched it due to the new magic bands and expansion of fantasyland etc.
