    I'm taking my 6 yr old daughter for 1st trip in a few days, 3 day park hopper ticket. What is the best way to split time between parks. What are "must do's" for her age.

    Hi Renee,

    Thanks so much for visiting us here on the Moms Panel. I can guess that your 6 year old princess is so excited about your upcoming magical vacation. From the special treats, to the Disney Character sightings and all the other pixie dust you'll experience, the both of you will never forget this vacation!

    As a mom of a little princess, here are my suggestions for you when it comes to breaking down your 3 days of park hopping:

    - Plan a full day at Magic Kingdom. This is the park that has a vast amount of attractions and activities for her age. You will need a whole day, plus a bit more, to explore it all and visit with all of her favorite characters. My favorite tip: start your day at the back of the park, The Barnstormer. They will be less crowds in the back, and as they are making their way to the back throughout the day, you'll be making your way to the front and eventually out of the park. Take a break in the late afternoon, then come back to the park at night to see Wishes nighttime spectacular. You won't want to miss it!

    - Visit Disney's Animal Kingdom, in the morning of day two, then venture to Epcot later in the day. Use your FastPass+ selections for that day at Animal Kingdom. Kilimanjaro Safaris, Finding Nemo - The Musical, and Festival of the Lion King are all great choices.

    - Visit Disney's Hollywood Studios during your last day, and add in another visit to Magic Kingdom. If you visit Hollywood Studios at park open, you and your princess can ride Toy Story Mania with minimal wait time, and no need to use a FastPass+ selection. On this day, I suggest using your selections at Magic Kingdom again. Choose attractions that you didn't choose on your 1st day.

    I hope this helps you, Renee. Thanks again for visiting and have a fantastical Disney day!
