    I want to visit Walt Disney for the first time with my 3 kids for 3 days around Christmas. How do I plan this trip? I basically want to stay there and visit the Magic Kingdom.

    Hi Rachel,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. December is the best month to visit WDW for me. Christmas decorations are incredibly beautiful. What I always do is visit during the first two weeks of December. After that, it tends to get crowded. The first two weeks you are going to feel the holiday season spirit, decorations and maybe able to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. It's my favorite special event at Magic Kingdom with Santa closing the parade and fake snow on Main Street. You should stay at one of the resorts served by monorail, with three kids it's going to be easier for you. My recommendation is Disney's Contemporary Resort. I can recommend a moderate and a value resort too, but you will have to use, mostly, the complementary bus transportation throughout the entire WDW. Check Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort. Take advantage of the FastPass+ system and make all your dining reservations in advance. Schedule at least one character meal for the kids. Great places to have this unforgettable meal are Chef Mickey's or Cape May Cafe.
    Have a magical day!
