    Matt from MI Asked

    Hello! We are planning a one day stop at Disney February 9, 2018. We have 3 daughters ages ranging from 5 years old to 1 year old. Wondering what the best tips and tricks are to maximize our day! We plan on visiting Magic Kingdom. Princesses are a must!

    Hi Matt,

    How wonderful that you can stop at Magic Kingdom for a day! There is so much to do on a princess day at Walt Disney World.

    I would start by making some Disney FastPass+ selections. In order to do this, you will need to have Disney theme park tickets linked in your My Disney Experience account. You will need tickets and to make Disney FastPass+ selections for everyone ages 3 years old and up. For those under 3 years old, you do not need tickets nor Disney FastPass+ selections as those littlest ones can accompany you. You may want to make Disney FastPass+ selections for meeting princesses as well as princess-centered attractions such as Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid and Enchanted Tales with Belle.

    I also suggest that you get to Magic Kingdom as early as you can, even 30 minutes or so before opening time if you can. The park hours for Magic Kingdom currently indicate that on your date, Magic Kingdom will open at 9:00 a.m. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, you can also head over for Extra Magic Hours starting at 8:00 a.m.!

    A final wonderful treat might be to make a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table to dine with royalty.

    I would love to help you plan further Matt; however, I am limited in the space that I have to answer. Please do write back with any further questions!
