    My daughter and I will be arriving on 02/07 and staying through 02/11 to celebrate her 5th birthday. Can you help with our itenarary? Ariel is her favorite and we have park hopper tickets for 4 days! Thank you!

    Hi, Tiffany!

    Wow! Your little princess will be celebrating her 5th birthday in the most magical place on Earth; how special!

    First, I've checked touringplans.com, an unofficial crowd-predicting site, for the best parks for each day, and came up with the following schedule. Depending on the time of your departure for home, you might want to use those 4 Park Hoppers on your first 4 days in a row, skipping the last day if it's a much shorter day. (Conversely, if you arrive in WDW late in the day and can linger longer on your last day, then skip going to a park on that first day, so that you can enjoy four fuller days in the parks.)

    2/7: Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios
    2/8: Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom
    2/9: Epcot
    2/10: Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios
    2/11: Magic Kingdom

    I've got lots of tips for princesses celebrating birthdays, as well as for those who adore Arielle. At Magic Kingdom, don't miss Ariel's Grotto, a great new opportunity to meet Ariel in the new Fantasyland Expansion. Under the Sea-Journey of The Little Mermaid is sure to be a hit as well. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, visit Voyage of the Little Mermaid, a 15-minute live show that you'll both love. Next, consider booking Princess Storybook Dining at Epcot's Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, where many princesses make appearances among their Guests...very often, Arielle is among them!

    Be sure to send another question including if you're staying at a WDW resort and if you're on a dining plan; I'd love to help you plan each day a little more, so that your birthday princess has the trip of a lifetime!
