    Hi, This is my first time to Walt Disney World with my young family. A young adventurous wife and a 10 months active son. What should I do to make it memorable for my beautiful wife and son. I need an advise on how to plan the trip experience

    Hello Murtala,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's so wonderful to hear you're planning your first vacation to Walt Disney World with your family during the holiday season! There are so many fun seasonal celebrations to experience that you and your family are sure to enjoy a most memorable trip.

    My first suggestion is to watch the Free Planning Videos online to get a great overview of the theme parks and attractions, and to get some great ideas for what will interest you the most.

    I also suggest you look at the online Park Hours Calendar for when you'll be visiting. You'll see scheduled hours for the parks and for parades and nighttime spectaculars. At Magic Kingdom Park, be sure to take the time to enjoy Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade and be sure to experience the Holiday Wishes fireworks spectacular. At Epcot, be sure to take time to enjoy Epcot International Festival of the Holidays and visit the World Showcase Pavilions to experience holiday traditions from around the world.

    Another suggestion is to look at the Tickets & Visit Guide to purchase your theme park tickets, and then try to make your complimentary FastPass+ selections. While you can always enjoy the attractions using the standby queues, the FastPass+ service can help lessen some of the standby queue wait time. You can also take advantage of  Rider Switch, which is helpful for enjoying attractions that your little one might be too young to ride.

    Murtala, here's wishing you a most magical visit to Walt Disney World.

    Enjoy your Disney!
