    Hi Andrea! I'm Laura from Argentina! I am going to Disney for the first time next year with my boyfriend and his family (adults only). I need some advice! What do you suggest? What parks visit , things to do, places to eat, prices and offers in general

    Hello Laura, and thank you for bringing your question to me at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I would suggest that you begin your day, in the parks, as early as possible. The parks are less crowded when they first open and you can save a lot of time waiting in line. If you are staying on Disney property, you can make your FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your arrival with valid theme park admission purchased in advance.This will allow you to skip the Standby line and enter the FastPass+ line at a designated time where you will have a low to almost no wait time. Now is also the time for everyone in your travel party to sign up for a free My Disney Experience account and get connected through your “My Family and Friends Lists.” This will make it easier to share plans, make FastPass+ selections as a group and your Advanced Dining Reservations.

    When it comes to dining, I absolutely love Character themed dining. It combines great food with amazing interactions with some of your favorite Characters. The Characters will come to your table during your meal to meet you. Some of my favorite dining experiences are Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Hollywood & Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Reservations are highly recommended for these and many other restaurants. You can make your reservations online or by calling (407) 939-5277 up to 180 days before your arrival. When it comes to prices and special offers, they can vary and are subject to change. The Cast Member handling your reservations can assist you with finding the best offers available for you. I hope that is enough to get your planning started. If you need any more help, please come back and visit us again.
