    Hello! Excited to be staying at Disney world with my family in May. Have pre-booked princess makeover for daughter but can't work out what other experiences need to be pre booked now. Please could you advise? Son is 11 and daughter 7. Thank you

    Hi Katie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us and thrilled that you have already booked your daughter a princess makeover. How exciting! Hopefully, you have booked all of your Dining Reservations already. If not, I recommend that you do so as soon as possible. Character meals fill quickly. My girls adore eating at Cinderella's Royal Table. Although reservations often fill as soon as the 180-day window opens, cancellations do occur so I would advise that, if you have not yet secured a reservation, keep checking. 

    May I also suggest a Pirate Adventure Cruise or the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage? Both experiences can be reserved in advance. There are also a host of other Special Events and Tours that your family might appreciate. 

    One very special experience that your daughter and son might enjoy is Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. While this experience cannot be pre-booked, I highly recommend it! You have to arrive to Hollywood Studios before the park opens so that you can enter the park right when it opens. Then go immediately to the sign-up location which currently is at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost. Your children must be with you to register. If you arrive in time, Cast Members will let you know which show times are available. 

    Remember also to pre-book your Fast Pass+ reservations for rides and attractions!
