    Arrive Feb.15 at 1pm and leave Feb.22 at 9pm. Would you recommend heading straight to the parks and getting 8 day park hopper passes or rest a day? Bringing 9yr old daughter for bday. Sadly the castle will be closed. Any other Must Do's to reserve now?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It's really up to you, but if it were my family vacation, I'd probably purchase the extra day and visit the parks when you arrive. Your daughter will probably be very excited to get started, and you'll still have plenty of time in the afternoon and evening.

    In terms of must-dos, I'd definitely recommend booking dining as far in advance as possible. My kids love having lunch at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom, which features Winnie the Pooh and friends. If your daughter loves princesses, Akershus in Epcot is a good alternative to Cinderella's Royal Table.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
