    Hello, I really need your help. It will be our 1st time to WDW (2 adults, 4 year old daughter, 6 year old son) in July. There is so much to do, and I have no idea where to start. We will be staying for 4 nights. Can you please suggest a plan for us?

    Hi Katherine,

    Congratulations on planning your first Walt Disney World vacation! You may be overwhelmed with options, but rest assured, you are going to have an amazing time with your family. Here are some quick tips to help you get started and hopefully relieve some of your stress:
    • Spend day 1 at Magic Kingdom. We love to start the "magic' of our vacation at Magic Kingdom. It's a great park for younger children since you can visit all the classic attractions like It's a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and Peter Pan's Flight. This will also be the park where you'll have memorable meet-and-greets of all kinds.
    • Spend day 2 at Epcot. Since this park not only has Future World and the World Showcase, you'll have no problem filling in a whole day with activities. There are meet-and-greets here as well, and this park has amazing restaurants and shops. We love to take our kids to Maelstrom, since it's for any height and is a fun attraction for the whole family. We make lunch reservations at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. It's a fun buffet-style restaurant featuring a few Disney Princesses.
    • On your 3rd day, split up your time between Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Visit Animal Kingdom early in the day. The animals are most animated in the morning. Be sure to check out DinoLand U.S.A, my 3 year old's favorite part of the park. In the late afternoon/early evening, visit Hollywood Studios. Make FastPass+ selections for Toy Story Mania. Kids and parents alike love this ride, so it's a must-see.
    • Make the 4th day your "down day." Relax at your resort, or re-vist the attractions your family loved. The best part about Walt Disney World is that you don't need to plan it all. The magic's there each and every day.

    I hope these few tips helped you, Katherine. If you have any other questions, or need more help with your planning, feel free to ask at any time. I'm always here to help you.
