    I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed trying to figure out what we need to plan. It's going to be my fiance and I and our 8 year old daughter. We will be at Magic Kingdom for two days in July. Where do I even get started as to what events I need to schedule?

    Hi Tara,

    I love answering questions from my fellow Missourians.  The Moms Panel does not want you to feel overwhelmed in planning your vacation and we're here to help.  Planning your Walt Disney World vacation should be fun and we'd like to take the stress out of it for you.

    Walt Disney World has a list of attractions which you can filter by age group to see what will be of most interest to your daughter.  Once you have looked over that list, you'll want to secure Fast Pass + reservations for your top choices.

    If you have not already done so, please download the My Disney Experience app to your phone so that you will have all of the park information at your fingertips.  Some of the great features of the app are being able to see character appearance times, dining options, guest services and shopping, so you are able to plan your day accordingly.

    Two items that should be on your "must do" list are Celebrate the Magic and Wishes nighttime spectacular which are presented every evening.  Even if you are not able to get a Fast Pass + for these events, you can still find prime viewing spots throughout the Magic Kingdom.

    I think this is enough to get you started on your planning, but please come back and visit so that we can help you the rest of the way.

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.

Walt Disney captured my heart as a little girl and has not let go since. As a parent and grandparent, I have been to the Walt Disney World Resort with children of all ages, and also as empty nesters. I would like to share my years of experience so that you are able to start your own tradition of Walt Disney World memories, just as I have. Learn More About Leanne
