    I just booked our familys first trip to Disney World for our daughters 5th birthday present. Is there any tips or suggestions for the first timers? :)

    Hi Christina!
    How exciting! Planning your first trip to WDW can be a bit overwhelming, but I think the first thing to do is familiarize yourself with all four theme parks, the two water parks and the Downtown Disney area. The WDW website is a great resource where you can even print out your own customized maps at home! You can browse attractions and entertainment to see what your princess might enjoy, and make a list of everything you "have" to experience. 
    Consider making reservations for a character dining experience, where you can dine, get pictures and autographs of your favorite characters.  You should also consider a special experience for your 5yo such as the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Also, be sure to check out other special ways to customize your special occasion. Whatever you do, remember to have lots of fun and that Cast Members are there to help you make your vacation a truly magical one.
    Have a magical, pixie dust filled vacation!
