    We'll be arriving in the middle of July. After reading tons of questions, I'm starting to fear that the crowd levels will make our experience less fun for our 5-year-old. Do you have any advice for keeping her excitement level up while we are in line?

    Hi Andrea,

    Great question!  There are a lot of things you can do to keep your little princess excited while waiting in line. What we do is ask our kids what they are looking forward to in the ride or what we should do after that ride. We keep the kids talking, we plan what we will do next or for the next day. The other thing we have done is carry a few things in our backpack, colouring book, small game, DS, etc. We also play games like eye spy! It is hot in July, so make sure you have water or small snacks handy so that no one gets hungry and loses patience.

    If you stay positive and upbeat your little one will as well. 

    Magic is everywhere at Walt Disney World, you will feel and experience it so hopefully your princess will be caught up in the magic that she won't be upset with any long lines. 

    Thank you for your question.

    Wishing you a very magical vacation!
