    Hi! We are going to DW to celebrate my dd's 5th bday 9/18-21 I did not take ADR seriously and have barely any reservations! Any suggestions for things we can do still make her experience magica(princess/Ariel)? I do have a reservation at BBD


    Wow, your trip is almost here! On behalf of us all here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Happy Birthday to your sweet girl. It is going to be a truly magical birthday indeed. Don't worry, Mom, there is still lots of ways to experience pixie-dusted moments without stressing about missing out on some dining experiences.

    My first and exciting suggestion would be to visit the all new Princess Fairytale Hall near Cinderella's Castle in Fantasyland. And, when I say new, I mean, BRAND new. It opens the day you arrive! How exciting would that be that she could be one of its first visitors?! Very memorable, if you ask me. She'll be able to meet some of her favorite princesses in person in this regal new place. Princesses can vary and could change without notice, but be sure to check the Times Guide for a schedule on the day you go to Magic Kingdom.

    Be sure to get a birthday button at your resort or when you enter the park and have her wear it during the entire trip, not just on her birthday! You will be amazed at the special personalized attention she will receive.

    If she is an Ariel fan, then be sure to visit her in her Grotto in Fantasyland as well as riding Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid nearby.

    Enjoy creating those special birthday wishes and memories for your little girl. Trust me, there will be pixie dust around every corner. Have fun.
