    My daughter (8) and I will be staying at Contemporary June 15-18 for our first visit to WDW. She wants to meet Anna & Elsa, Ariel, and some dolphins. :) Do I need FastPass+ tickets, and are there and reservations I can make? (Budget is fairly open)

    Hi Mark! Congratulations on your very first trip to Walt Disney World Resort with your own little Princess! I can see you have an incredible itinerary already lined's going to be the most magical experience, one you'll cherish for many years to come. You're going to love Disney's Contemporary Resort, nothing is more cool than the monorail running right through.

    Anna and Elsa are super popular right now so you definitely want use your FastPass+ because the wait times will be monstrous! The good news is with magic hours there are extended evening FastPass+ time slots so your daughter will have a good chance to meet her Disney favorites.

    My daughters loved meeting Ariel at her Grotto, it was intimate and lovely...great pictures! Disney's Dolphins in Depth is unlike any other experience, but you'll have to save it for a future trip because guests have to be at least 13 to participate in this unique experience. BUT I do have good news, your daughter is old enough to take part in Epcot's Seas Aqua Tour...a chance to explore the underwater beauty of the Caribbean Coral Reef!  

    If you haven't already purchased your theme park tickets, do that right away so you can begin making your FastPass+ selections. Be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App so you'll have your interactive itinerary at your fingertips on the go!

    I wish you a magical and memorable first Disney vacation!
