    Hi!!! My Family will be going to Disney World for our first trip and I'm looking for suggestions on places to eat and what good things to do since we have never been there!!! We are going May 30th until June 3rd!!!

    Hi Theresa,

    A first Walt Disney World Trip; how exciting! A first trip can be overwhelming with all the different parks, attractions, dining and entertainment options, where to stay. With a little planning, some advice from the Disney Parks Moms Panel and some Pixie Dust, you’ll have an excellent time.

    Since you didn't provide us with details about your family, I'll give you some of my favorite options. Regarding what good things to do, each of the four theme parks have many favorites. At Epcot, my family loves Soarin' as well as the excitement of Mission Space. Kilimanjaro Safaris and Festival of the Lion King are our favorites at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. So many awesome attractions at Magic Kingdom Park like Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion. And I feel right at home at Star Wars Launch Bay and Star Tours - The Adventure Continue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    Did you know there are about 350 dining venues? Everything, from Turkey Legs to dining with Disney Princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table. Our favorite? Teppan Edo in the Japan pavilion at Epcot. We love the experience, and the food too!

    And finally, my tips about planning. Make sure you sign up at My Disney Experience, which will be your central hub to planning and keeping track of all your reservations and FastPass+. Also, download the My Disney Experience mobile app. You may also want to take a look at Birnbaum's 2016 Walt Disney World: The Official Guide, an excellent book and resource guide.

    I’m sure you'll have lots of more questions, so visit us again. A wonderful time, you and your family will have...
