    Hi Eleazer,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us! Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and the rest of the gang are excited to celebrate your daughter's birthday.

    My family likes to visit the Walt Disney World Resort at the end of July. Of course, it is hot! So come prepared with a plan to combat the heat. Our strategy centers on heading back to the resort by early afternoon to take a break or arriving at the parks a little later in the day after enjoying some pool time. 

    For your younger daughter, I suggest that you review the Planning Guide for Pre-School Kids and Little Ones. It will give you suggestions for attractions and rides she might enjoy. I would definitely suggest Peter Pan's Flight, the Magic Carpets of Aladdin and Kilimanjaro Safaris. The Festival of the Lion King Show would also be fantastic.

    To spread a little extra pixie dust on your vacation, try ordering a Mickey Mouse cake or a special gift basket from Disney Floral & Gifts. My girls love dining with the princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table. Princesses from near and far come dressed to dine as only royalty can, so be sure to bring your princess attire!

    Eleazer, we always take light snacks with us into the parks. Be sure to check the park rules for a list of items that may not be allowed. 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
