    First trip & possibly only trip for myself and 6yr old daughter. Finding myself overwhelmed in planning trip. Any suggestions/advice would be very much appreciated. I've already made several reservations at restaurants and BBB. Must do's? 5 day trip

    Hi Shalyce,

    A first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is so exciting, and I can understand your feeling of being overwhelmed. One thing that I always advise when it comes to first trips is to pick a few "must-do's" and then let the rest of the magic just fall into place. 

    I't's great that you already have dining reservations in place. Be sure to give 24-hour advance notice should you need to cancel to avoid any charges that may apply. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is sure to make your daughter feel just like a fairytale Princess after her pixie dusted makeover! Here are just a few of my suggestions: 

    * Magic Kingdom Park ~ Your daughter can meet some of Disney's most popular Princesses at Princess Fairytale Hall. Cinderella and Rapunzel, as well as Anna and Elsa, are available for pictures and autographs. Don't miss Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. The floats, the music, and the Characters, are truly breathtaking. FastPass+ is offered for both of these enchanting experiences. 

    * Disney's Hollywood Studios ~ You may also see Anna and Elsa in For The First Time In Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.  You can laugh and sing along to this lively retelling of the Frozen story. FastPass+ is also available. 

    *Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park ~ Kilimanjaro Safaris is one of my family's favorite attractions. Giraffes, elephants, hippos, and crocodiles are just a few of the exotic animals you'll get a glimpse of on this journey through the savanna. 

    Have a magical visit!
