    I'll be coming down in July with my husband and 9 yr old we've never been which park would best to go to? We want to see all the Disney charactors but also want to ride rides. Also would it be best to stay at a Disney hotel?

    Hey, Erica and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I know Mickey and the rest of the "Fab Five" will be thrilled to finally meet you in July.

    To begin this exciting adventure I would stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. You will receive a magical package with your complimentary MagicBands. A Disney Parks Resort hotel provides direct access to buses, Extra Magic Hours, wonderfully themed pools and more.

    My first choice for theme parks is Magic Kingdom Park. Walking down Main Street, U.S.A, and seeing beautiful Cinderella Castle is magical. With over 40 attractions, this theme park has something for everybody. Your 9-year-old will have a blast riding Space Mountain or seeing the creepy creeps in the Haunted Mansion. Here is a quick reference for attractions by height.
     
    Now, what about characters meet and greets? No other theme park has more Disney characters to visit. Check out this current list of Magic Kingdom Park characters. Some of them have other engagements and are only visiting for a few hours while others just love hanging out for the day. Check the paper Times Guide when you arrive at the theme park or better, find them on the My Disney Experience mobile app. The best way to meet characters is dining with them. Character Dining meals are fun as they visit you at your table for an autograph and picture.

    Have an amazing time and please tell Mickey "Hi!" from me. He meets friends in Town Square Theater.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
