    Hello, this will be my families first time going to Disney World. We will be staying for 5 nights. Where do I begin to give my kids (12, 7 & 8) at time of travel the best experience?

    Hi Kirstin,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m exited for your first time! It’s going to be unforgettable. First, get a Memory Maker, because you will want to have all the photos and with this option you will have some of the ride photos/videos too. Schedule all the three FastPass+ selections for each day. Arrive early at the parks, have lunch around 11:00 a.m. to avoid the crowds. Make reservations for, at least, one character meal and to please them all, go with the classic ones. You can try at Chef Mickey’s or Tusker House Restaurant. Both have an amazing breakfast menu. At nights, go to Disney Springs with your kids. Give them a Disney Gift Card or allow them to use their MagicBands to purchase things, so they can choose some souvenirs. Visit World of Disney, Once Upon a Toy, Goofy Candy & Co. Lego store and Ghirardelli. Have diner at T-Rex or at Rainforest Café. As for the attractions/shows, read some reviews at Touring Plans and watch some videos at YouTube and let they decide and participate at the itinerary too.

    Have a magical day!
