    Hi, just booked my family's first trip to WDW, have no idea what to expect, what would you recommend as a "must do" while we are there? We have Park hopper tickets so we plan to visit all theme parks. Any suggestions would help, Thank you

    Hi, Irma!
    Congrats on setting up your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort! I'm so excited for you and your family!

    My family's first multi-day trip to Disney World was for three days with Park Hopper Tickets. We wanted to do two parks for the first two days and spend our final day at Magic Kingdom Park all day. (I consider Magic Kingdom the most "classic" Disney experience.)

    I'd recommend you look at the attractions at each park and see what interests your family. Many of the top experiences have a chance for FastPass+ reservations. If you're staying at a resort on Disney property, you can set up FastPass+ 60 days before your visit. It's 30 days if you stay off Disney property.

    Beyond the FastPass+ reservations, keep some attractions in mind that you'd like to visit. If you stay on property, take full advantage of Extra Magic Hours. There are fewer people in the parks, and you'll have more opportunities to enjoy more attractions, especially during early Extra Magic Hours!

    Don't put too much pressure on scheduling every moment of your trip. It will be unforgettable no matter what! Relax and have fun! Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel any time! I'm happy to answer more questions!
