    Hi Erika! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I completely understand how overwhelming it can be to plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation and that is exactly why we are here! I would love to help you navigate your way through the planning process. Since your trip is just three days away, let's get started right away!

    Since your little guy is 5-years-old, I recommend trying out one of the less expensive tours to make sure he enjoys it without making a big financial investment. Disney's Family Magic Tour features a guided scavenger hunt, so if your son likes solving riddles and going on "quests," this would be perfect for your family! My little ones love animals, so the Caring for Giants tour would be a hit with them. Considering that the tour is only 60 minutes long, I know that they would be able to handle the length of the tour, too.

    Having made your FastPass+ selections, you are well ahead of the time-saving game! I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app. This will allow you to make more and/or change selections as you are in the theme parks, as well as see current wait times and even order food on the go! Speaking of food, my other recommendation of things to do prior to your visit is make dining reservations for any Table-Service restaurants that you want to try. Since you already know what theme park you are visiting each day and your FastPass+ times, you can plan your meals around those details. But don't worry! Even if you don't make any dining reservations, there are many Quick-Service dining options to choose from that don't require a reservation!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Erika!
