    We are planning our first trip to Disney World with grand kids end of July. They are girl 4 and boy 6. We will not be staying at Disney resort. Can we get fast pass? Can we do character meals? What other park should we go to?

    Hi Carter,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Congrats on planning your first trip with your grandkids. 

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can still get FastPass+ and character meal reservations. You'll be able to make FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance, and dining reservations 180 days in advance. 

    I'm assuming that you are already planning on going to the Magic Kingdom. For a second park, I'd recommend either Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios. My kids especially love the World Showcase in Epcot, and they also love the Seas with Nemo and Friends and the Imagination! pavilions. 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is lots of fun for kids who love Disney Junior, Toy Story, and Star Wars. So depending on what your grandkids like, you have a few options.

    Have a great vacation!
