    I have never been to Disney...I have a very limited budget. We will be going next year, but only able to attend Disney for 1 day. 2 girls (19 &12), what is the best way to see/do as much as possible in 1 day?

    Hello Julie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What an amazing present for your girls!

    Since this is your first visit and you are coming for one day, you have to visit iconic Magic Kingdom Park! 

    Here are a couple of tips to make your first visit unforgettable:

    - Check which attractions you would like to experience. Create a Disney account to link purchased tickets, and make FastPass+ selections. I suggest classic rides such as Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. 
    - Arrive one hour prior to park opening. Enjoy Main Street U.S.A. and position yourself close to Cinderella Castle to experience Let the Magic Begin. Ask Cast Members for a celebratory First Visit button as you enter the park.  
    - Stop by Town Square Theater to say hello to Mickey Mouse, and at the end of your day grab a classic hot dog at Casey’s Corner and find a nice spot to watch the brand new nighttime spectacular: Happily Ever After.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical first visit!

    Best magical wishes,
