    My family will be taking our 1st ever WDW trip in Nov. 2016 and we are so excited! My boys will be 5 and 8 during our trip- is there any recommendation to make their first trip extra magical? Unfortunately we will only be in the parks for 3 days.

    Hello, Kristen!

    Your first Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner. I'm sure you and your boys must be getting so excited! I am happy to share a few ideas to help you make this trip extra special for your boys.

    There are several free activities that your children may enjoy participating in at the theme parks. At Magic Kingdom Park, make sure to stop by the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A. to sign your boys up for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. This interactive role-playing game will send your family off on a quest to fight the forces of evil as you explore Magic Kingdom Park.

    Your family can also work together to thwart the evil plans of Dr. Doofenshmirtz with Disney's Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure at Epcot. Visit a recruitment center at the International Gateway or the Italy Pavilion to receive your assignment, and get ready to set off on a super secret agent mission!

    Your boys can become true Wilderness Explorers at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This self-guided activity helps children learn about animals and conservation habits while having a lot of fun! You can pick up a free field guide from any of the Wilderness Explorers stops.

    One extra tip: Make sure to select your FastPass+ attractions in advance of your visit. Disney's FastPass+ service helps guests save time waiting in lines at popular attractions. It's a great way to add in a little extra magic at the theme parks.

    I hope you and your family have a magical Walt Disney World vacation, Kristen! Please don't hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before your trip. We would love to hEAR from you!
