    Hi Katie!

    Congratulations on your first trip to Walt Disney World! Your little ones are going to have an amazing time! When you arrive make sure to ask for your complimentary "My First Visit" buttons.

    I think your little ones will love Magic Kingdom. Make sure to arrive early and plan time in your day to go back to your resort to rest or go to the pool. After their naps, you can head back into the park with plenty of energy to see the new Happily Ever After fireworks show. When planning your FastPasses and what attractions to visit, note that you can sort by age, height and thrill level.

    Some attractions you will definitely not want to miss are Dumbo,  The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Mickey's Philharmagic

    You will also want to plan a character dining experience, such as Chef Mickey's. You can make your Advanced Dining Reservation 180 days in advance. 

    I definitely recommend checking out the Disney Planning for Little Ones Guide for additional tips.
