    Coming to WDW May 29, 5 nights as a surprise trip for my son, 10, as a thank you for being such a big helper with his new baby sister and for his 5th grade graduation the day before.His and my first visit. Anything we shouldn't miss or crowd expectations?

    Hi there, Michelle!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel!

    What an incredible surprise your big helper has in store for him! I can only imagine how excited you must be!

    I recommend that you spend one full day at Magic Kingdom Park, more if possible. You will find the largest number of Attractions that have no height requirement so your littlest dreamer can ride too. Be sure not to miss the brand new Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade! You just won't believe your eyes when you see how magical it is!

    If anyone in your family is a Star Wars fan, you won't want to miss Star Wars™ Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios. There are all kinds of special shows, entertainment, Character meet and greets and adventures to be had.

    As far as crowds go, you'll be heading into summer and the Parks are getting pretty busy since school will already be out for some districts. You will definitely want to utilize FastPass+ as much as you can. This will save you some time from waiting in lines.

    Also, since you'll have a tiny one with you, you'll want to be aware of the Baby Care Centers that are located in each of the 4 major Theme Parks. These are an air-conditioned oasis for families with little ones. There is a diaper-changing room, a sitting room where older kids can watch Disney movies or color, there's even a kitchenette with common baby items for sale just in case you forgot anything.

    I'm just about out of room, but please let us know if we can help with any other questions!

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
