    Newbie here! Planning out a trip for my 6 yo and 4 yo first trip to BBB! I would love the whole day to be magical! I'm getting stuck trying to figure out times, dining, and rides that fit this in. What would your day look like? Thanks!

    Hello, Amy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you've got some great plans for your princesses already. They will love getting the royal treatment and being transformed into their favorite Disney Princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

    My days are usually planned different and it all depends on what we are doing, actually. If we've got special event tickets for a party like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, we usually plan on staying out late that night and sleeping in the next morning. This means FastPass+ selections are planned for later in the day and breakfast is skipped altogether for an early lunch or quick snack. If we are getting up early we usually plan a nice Table Service breakfast and our FastPass+ selections will start about an hour after park opening. We do the FastPass+ selections early on so that we have quicker access to the rolling FastPass+ selections. After your first initial 3 FastPass+ reservations are used you can go to the FastPass+ kiosks in the parks to schedule an additional FastPass+ selection.

    If your girls take naps then I would suggest planning the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover after they take their afternoon nap. This will free up your morning for rides and you can do character meet and greets in the park after they wake up refreshed and get made over into little princesses. I usually only plan one Table Service meal a day and the rest are Quick Service. This makes dining times more flexible so that we can eat when we are actually hungry instead of when we have plans to. Since you are treating your girls to a princess makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, why not make the whole day a princess-themed day? You can do a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and meet all of the princesses with your girls in their gowns.

    I am running out of space, but if you need anything else please stop back in and we'd love to help. Have a magical day!
