    HI, We will be attending DW for the first time in less than 2 weeks with 4 day park hop(shades of grn), it will be 2 adult and our 2 1/2 year old little girl, she loves mickeys crew and princess stuff(not too scary). Any itenerary ideas or help..thanks!

    Hi Chrystal,

    I see that you'll be staying at the Shades of Green Resort. Thank you so much for the service that you and your family have provided to our country. I really appreciate it!

    I've got a few ideas that will hopefully help with your plans:

    Idea #1: Character Dining Experiences

    While it's ideal to get reservations 180 days out, last-minute cancellations happen all the time. Call (407) WDW-DINE or download the My Disney Experience app on your phone and you can possibly snag a recently forfeited reservation.

    Idea #2: Character Meet-and-Greets

    Grab a guide map and times guide at each of the theme parks to see where you can find the characters hanging around that day. If you aren't planning to do any of the character dining experiences, this is a great alternative for your daughter to meet with some of her favorite pals. 

    Idea #3: Parades

    My daughter absolutely loves the "Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party" in the Magic Kingdom because she can sing and dance alongside her BFF (Mickey Mouse!).

    Here's a bonus idea from your buddy Derek:

    You'll see a wide variety of autograph books for sale in the various gift shops. My little girl loves the ones that have a spot on each page for a photograph to be inserted as well. That way, it's like a mini scrapbook for her to thumb through as she reminisces about the times she hung out with her favorite pals at Walt Disney World.

    I hope that helps! Please feel free to write back if you'd like some additional ideas and I'll be happy to help in any way that I can.

    Best regards,
