    Hi my daughter is 5 and we obviously know that magic kingdom and animal kingdom are good parks for her age but what about Hollywood studios and EPCOT? Also, what are some things that we MUST do for a little 5 year old princess on her first trip to Disney?

    Hi Tori, 

    Taking your five year old princess to Walt Disney World is such a magical adventure!  She is at the right age for many of the attractions, and I would make sure to spend some time with her favorite characters at Meet and Greets.  I agree with going to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom.  Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom is a must for children of all ages.  She will just love riding the Prince Charming Regal Carousel or flying the Magic Carpets of Aladdin.  I would have her visit Pixie Hollow and say hello to Tinker Bell and her fairy friends.  Booking a dinner with the Princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table or the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot is always a treat.   At Hollywood Studios, your daughter will love riding Toy Story Midway Mania for some fun.  At the Animation Courtyard, she can dance and sing with her friends from TV shows like "Handy Mandy" and " Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" at Playhouse Disney- Live on Stage or journey with the Voyage of the Little Mermaid.  She might also like to visit a galaxy far, far away with Star Tours- The Adventure Continues.  At Epcot, she will enjoy the Land Pavilion with the Living with the Land boat ride and Soarin'.  She will love visiting The Seas with Nemo & Friends as well as Turtle Talk with Crush!  I think if you have time to visit all the theme parks, your daughter will just have an adventure of a lifetime!  Most of all, capture all these magical memories on film or video.  I love looking back and seeing the wonder in my children's eyes at Walt Disney World!  Enjoy the magic of being five years old again!  Please let me know if I can help you further, Tori.
