    Looking for advice on how to tackle the MK attractions. First trip for our kids (2,4,6yrs) and we will have one full day at MK, w/early breakfast @ CRT & another 1/2 day for MVMCP. Almost time to book FP+ reservations - any tips maximize our time?

    Hi, Stacey!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm so excited for your kids' first visit to Magic Kingdom Park. I am always in awe to watch little ones react as they walk down Main Street U.S.A. My oldest was so overwhelmed by it all when he was little, it led to tears. It was so dang sweet. (And unexpected!)

    Since you're kicking off your unforgettable day in the park with a delicious breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table, I recommend booking your FastPass+ reservations starting two hours after the start of your meal. That will help make sure you don't feel like you need to rush things when you're enjoying a really magical experience. My family will never forget eating there for breakfast and ending the meal with breakfast birthday cake! (Where else in the world would you allow cake for breakfast?!?) 

    I would try to book your FastPass+ reservations back to back, basically three hours in a row. That way, you can pull up your My Disney Experience app on your phone and try to snag extra FastPass+ rides. I've been able to snag two extra FastPass reservations after using up my first three. It doesn't happy every time, but it's worth the try!

    You might be interested in seeing this great guide on how little ones can enjoy Walt Disney World. Also, you may be able to take advantage of Rider Switch Service if your oldest is tall enough to ride an attraction while the other little ones may need to wait to grow up just a little bit more!

    I hope that helps you plan a bit more. Please feel free to ask me more questions! I'd love to help!
