    I just booked my kids (girl - 9; boy - 6) FIRST trip to DISNEY!!! We will be @ Disney for 3 days. Should be do one park a day or how do we get the best experience (we are doing Rainforest Cafe on Day #1)??? I also have to do Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

    Hi Wanda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mickey, Minnie and I are all doing a collective happy dance! We are thrilled that you are planning your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Yes, doing one park per day sounds like a great plan. You will just have to decide which park you will not see on this visit. We love them all! Magic Kingdom is a must-do. Take a look at the rides and attractions list for each park to narrow down your choices.

    If you are doing the Rainforest Cafe in Disney's Animal Kingdom on day one, then I suggest you consider doing Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Dinosaur, Kilimanjaro Safaris and the Festival of the Lion King Show. At Magic Kingdom, we love the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Tomorrowland Speedway. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, we love Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, and Toy Story Mania! Finally, at Epcot, we have to ride Soarin', Track, and Mission Space. 

    If either of your children are fans of Frozen, check-out the list of Frozen Experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I hope you have made reservations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Be sure to also make other advanced dining reservations! Some of our must-do character meals are Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, and 1900 Park Fare (Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner). Our girls love to jump in the party line at the Crystal Palace!

    Also be sure to create a My Disney Experience Account and make Fast Pass+ reservations! 

    Happy Planning!
