    We are going to disney for the first time in Oct. Our girls are 6 and 7. We are looking for the best shows and celebrations. They are not interested in Mickey characters mainly the princesses or movie characters. What can you reccomend? Thank you!!

    Hi, Melany!!

    Well, a few ideas come to mind immediately.  Akershus Royal Table located in Epcot.  Similar to Cinderella's Royal Table each party will receive a picture with a princess.  The key differences between the two at this time are:

    a) There is no guarantee which Disney Princess will be present for the photo on the day of your reservations at Akershus.  Cinderella's Royal Table will always be Cinderella.


    b) The Akershus only requires one table service meal presently compared to two table service meals for Cinderella's Royal Table. 

    My kids all love to go to Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba located in Downtown Disney.  It was a 90 minute show last year.  It was awesome.  My kids ranged from 6 to 13.  They didn't move for the entire hour and half.  It was the talk of the night.  We went to the first show so we were able to catch the WISHES fireworks at the Magic Kingdom.  

    I hope this gets you started!!  Have a fabulous trip!! Heather M.
