    We are coming to Disney World the week of July 4th with our children 3 and 7. First trip to Disney. Visiting Magic Kingdom for two day since this is our first time. Any suggestions are must sees and dos for age group/family to make the most of time?

    Hi LaVonna! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am beyond excited for you to visit the Walt Disney World Resort for the very first time! This will be a trip that you will always remember ... especially seeing the eyes of your children light up as they take it all in. Make sure to have your camera ready!

    Magic Kingdom Park is perfect for the ages of your kiddos. They will both be able to ride on most attractions, with just a few having height restrictions that your 3-year-old may not be able to ride. In this scenario, utilize Disney's Rider Switch service which allows part of your party to ride the attraction with the height restriction, then you get a Rider Switch pass that allows the others in your party that are tall enough to ride to go through the FastPass+ line for the attraction without having to wait in the Stand By line again.

    I suggest making your initial three FastPass+ selections for earlier in the day, so you can make more selections (one at a time, subject to availability) as you are on-the-go in the theme park. This can save your family SO much time in line! Downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app makes this even easier. You can also use the app for Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering to skip even more lines at Quick-Service dining locations.

    Don't forget to stop by and Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater. This is always the "cherry on top" of our vacations, as we pause from rushing around to all of the attractions and spend some time with the Mouse that started it all.

    I hope these tips help you as you plan your days! Please let me know if you have any other questions!
