    Have a 1 day pass to take just turned 3 yo to MK. Staying off-site and am afraid she will not make it the whole day. Barely 38' tall which limits us so front loaded the day with FP+ for Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Belle b4 noon. Any add'l suggestions?

    Hello, Danielle. I think your plans sound great so far! Since you are staying off-site and can't just hop a monorail back to your resort for a mid-day nap, I suggest bringing a stroller. Kids are usually great about being able to sleep anywhere so if you bring a stroller she will at least have somewhere to zonk out if she gets sleepy. Of course you don't want to push her to make it all day either, but you know your child best and what is best for her. My best advice is to take advantage of the FastPass+ system and have a priority list. What are the attractions, shows, and restaurants that you just can't miss? Make a list and try to hit all of your 'must dos'. Also, pack a bathing suit and towel. The Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station saved my son from having a complete meltdown last year when we went for his 5th birthday. It was hot and he was cranky and wanted to leave until we saw the splash area. I was able to sit down and relax while he ran around in the water. Afterward we were both refreshed and ready to go on for another few hours.

    As far as plan suggestions, I definitely think that you should try to see the Festival of Fantasy Parade. It is one of the most creative parades I have seen in years. It's amazing! Also, you may think that you are limited by your daughter's height, but there are 33 attractions at the Magic Kingdom that have no height requirement. Out of those 33, I suggest its a small world, Mad Tea Party, Under The Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. 

    I'm running out of space, but I must suggest Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Your little princess will be given the royal treatment as she is transformed into her favorite princess by her very own Fairy Godmother-in-training. Call (407) 939-7895 for reservations.
