    I will be going to WDW this December with my 2 year old. Any tips, tricks or things to do? We have an annual pass so options are open for the 4 main parks. Also, does anyone know of a way to see lots of characters in one area or a package for that?

    Hi Britney,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mickey and Minnie Mouse are so excited to greet your little one!

    Of course, character interactions are one of our favorite experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort! To make your meet and greet plans with the characters, I suggest you review the list of Character Experiences first. Decide which friends your little one must meet and prioritize your schedule.

    Our girls alternate between being Jedi by day and princesses by night, so we always visit with the Princesses at Walt Disney World Resort. We actually use one of our Fast Pass+ selections to greet either Rapunzel and Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall or Cinderella and Elena. On our last visit, we made our way to Arendelle to visit with Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus. We started our day with breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, then sailed through Arendelle on Frozen Ever After. We actually always do meals with our girls' princess friends.

    Of course, no visit would be complete for our young Jedi recruits if we did not visit Star Wars Launch Bay to see BB-8 Astromech on Duty and Chewbacca. Since our girls are older, they love to challenge Kylo Ren. On our last visit the stare down concluded with him telling them "Your indecision is unnecessary." Fortunately, the Force is strong with them and he did not sway them to the Dark side. 

    Britney, finally, consider other meals with characters to see several characters at once. Chef Mickey's is our favorite place to see Mickey Mouse and the gang and we adore hugging Winnie the Pooh and friends at The Crystal Palace!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
