    Best suggestions for absolutely not miss for 8 and 11. Year old girls... my oldest will be celebrating her bday there and we will also be there for Mother's Day. First time for my girls ... also looking for can't miss restaurants...

    Hi Tina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How wonderful that you are planning your girls' first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I am sure they are ecstatic!

    If they are princess girls, I suggest that you familiarize yourself with Disney Princesses at the Walt Disney World Resort. My girls loved visiting Rapunzel and Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall. While at Princess Fairytale Hall, your girls may also enjoy meeting Cinderella and Elena. One of our favorite princess meals is Cinderella's Royal Table. Some of our other favorite restaurants are Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, Be our Guest and Coral Reef.

    If your girls are Frozen fans, I suggest that you check out the variety of Frozen Experiences. They might enjoy meeting Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus and touring enchanted Arendelle on Frozen Ever After in Epcot. 

    Know also that they can learn how to use the Force at Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. To sign-up your new recruits, you must do so on the day of your visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Get to the park before park opening and head directly to the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost.

    Finally, to celebrate your daughter's birthday, pick up a complimentary special button for her at your resort and consider purchasing a special gift from Disney Floral & Gifts. Or, order a cake for her by calling 407-827-2253.

    I hope this helps!
