    what are the best events to fast pass at magic kingdom and animal kingdom for a 51/2 yr old girl's first trip to wdw?

    Hi, Cathy!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm excited you have a chance to bring a princess to Walt Disney World Resort! I would check in with her to find out if she's really interested in princesses before you visit Magic Kingdom Park. There are fantastic opportunities to get a FastPass to visit with a princess or two. I would also recommend Big Thunder Mountain Railroad if she's tall enough. It's the perfect introduction to roller coasters! Also, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin is a favorite FastPass for my kids.

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, I highly recommend getting a FastPass reservation for Kilimanjaro Safaris, the Finding Nemo, and Lion King shows. Be sure to check out the Wilderness Explorers. It's a super fun way to explore all parts of the park. My daughter is one badge away from completing her collection!

    Have an amazing visit and let me know if I can help with any additional planning questions.

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
