    Hello. We are going to Disney world in 2 weeks! First time. I have a 5 year old and a 7 year old, both girls. My mother in law keeps saying to get park packages and passes and everything else. I'm so overwhelmed and have no idea where to begin.

    Hi Ashley! Congratulations on your very first trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Don't feel overwhelmed, you and your girls are going to have the most magical experience!

    Your Mother-In-Law is probably taking about FastPass+ you can purchase your theme park tickets online: then link them in your My Disney Experience account and then you'll be able make your FastPass+ selections for up to 3 attractions per day - before you arrive.

    Some popular favorites include - Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, Jungle Cruise, Soarin’, Test Track, Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Kali River Rapids.

    Of course no princess visit is complete without a visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for an enchanted glam session. Opt for the "crown package" and you can save money by bringing your own dress. It's a very popular place so try to book your appointment with a Fairy Godmother-in-training at the Disney Springs location (407) 939-7895.

    Download the My Disney Experience Mobile App on your smart phone so you'll have your interactive itinerary to help you explore Walt Disney World Resort on the real-time GPS-enabled map.
