    My family would rather just visit Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios because of our kids' ages. 16 other family members with be with us, and they have never been to Disney. They want to see the castle...can we see it without paying admission?

    Hello Marie-France,

    How exciting that you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation!  Planning a trip with a large party is exciting and does not have to be overwhelming, as Disney offers many options that are sure to delight every member of your crew.  Several Disney Resorts, including Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort offer fantastic views of Cinderella Castle. If your entire party is comfortable with a beautiful view from a distance, I would recommend a visit to one of these resorts, all of which have fantastic dining options, so that you can enjoy a great meal and grab some magical photos.  In order to get up close to the Castle, however, you will need admission to Magic Kingdom park.  I might recommend that with a larger party, you split up into smaller groups for part of your trip to allow those who prefer to explore Disney's Animal Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios to do so while the first-timers in  your crew have the ability to experience the magic and whimsy of perhaps the most iconic symbol of Walt Disney World!

    Have a wonderful trip!
