    Erin Asked

    We will be visiting MK for the first time, for one day, the first week of feb. I will be bringing my 3 kids, 5, 4, 1 (girl,boy, girl) with me. Could you try to provide me with an idea of how to spend the day? My daughter loves Belle and my son Peter Pan.

    Hi Erin!
    How exciting that you get to bring your kids to Walt Disney World for their first trip! It is going to be spectacular!!
    And if you are only going to be there for one day, you certainly picked the right park to spend it in. The Magic Kingdom is truly a wonderful place to create and share memories.
    The first thing I would do is to get a Times Guide and park map at the entrance to Magic Kingdom. This will not only help you to navigate the park, but will also provide you with character meet and greet locations, parade and show times, and all food locations.
    Specifically, I would go to the Peter Pan's Flight attraction to get Fast Passes for the family. Also, while there, if the "stand-by" line (also known as wait time ) is less than 30 minutes, I would also hop in line right then to ride the attraction. Wait times can get pretty long for this attraction and you want to maximize your time riding and not waiting.
    As for Belle, your daughters have the chance to get up close and personal with their favorite princess by attending  Enchanted Tales with Belle in the New Fantasyland! Your kids, as well as you, will be blown away by this experience.
    I would give priority to these two attractions since you list them as your childrens' favorites, but I would also make sure to explore the rest of the park. It may not be possible to see everything during your visit (in fact, it's not) so you may as well spend the time doing each child's favorite "must-do" attractions and take turns.
    Please come on back and let me know if you have any more specific questions. It would be my pleasure to help you plan this first trip further.
    I hope this helps and I wish you all a Magical, memorable trip!! :)
