    Booked for our 6 yr old daughters first wdw trip at w.lodge, 4 days 3 nights in Oct. The trip is shorter than I'd like and haven't been to Disney in yrs. how do I make the most of our trip, what are the must-see attractions for a 6 yr old girl? Help?

    Hi Margaret! Wilderness Lodge is a great resort and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do.

    Each park will have many attractions to see and experience and it is best to just try to choose a few since your trip is a short one. Remember to not rush through and miss all the extra magic such as parades and entertainment.  With six year old daughters you will likely want to find a princess meet and greet line at some point too! I have a six year old grandson so will try to share his favorites with you.

    Magic Kingdom:
    It's a Small World
    Peter Pan
    Mickey's PhilharMagic
    Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
    Dumbo the Flying Elephants
    Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Jungle Cruise
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    People Mover
    Buzz Lightyear

    As you can see the list is quite long for the Magic Kingdom and there are still more fun attractions such as the thrill rides that you will want to consider for your children.

    Animal Kingdom:
    Festival of the Lion King
    It's A Bug's Life
    Flights of Wonder
    Rafiki's Planet Watch
    Again Everest and Dinosaur are depending on the children

    Hollywood Studios:
    Toy Story Mania
    Lights Motors Action!
    Muppet Vision 3D
    Voyage of the Little Mermaid

    Spaceship Earth
    Journey Into Imagination
    Turtle Talk with Crush

    Make sure you save one full day for the Magic Kingdom, 1/2 day for Animal Kingdom, a long full day for Epcot and Hollywood Studios, then decide what to return to for the remaining time you have left. Let me know what else I can assist you with and don't forget to use Fast Passes when possible!
