    February is our first time going. I have a 6 ur girl. Need tips or anything real on what to do or no to do. And how to save money. Plus what is the weather like. Should we bring our swimming stuff? I just need help lol.

    Hi Jessica!

    First of all, February is a great time to visit the Disney Parks.  The temperature is very mild, jeans and t-shirts with a long sleeve or a light weight jacket in the evenings.  I'd go ahead and pack your swim suits. All pools at Walt Disney World are heated year round to a lovely 82 degrees. 

    If your 6 year old is anything like my 7 year old, she loves Disney princesses.  I suggest a makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!  There, your daughter will be treated by royalty by Fairy Godmother's In Training.  There are several different packages to choose from to fit all types of budgets.  To try to save money, we always choose the Crown Package - hairstyle, makeup, nails - and then bring our own princess dress we've purchased ahead of time.  It works saves a lot of money by doing it that way. 

    We also love dining with the characters at Walt Disney World, it's a great way to meet some of your favorites without having to wait in line.  I personally love Tusker House at Disney's Animal Kingdom. It's an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal with some really unique breakfast offerings.  Plus, you get to meet Donald Duck and I just love him.  I also really enjoy Cape May Cafe which is at Disney's Beach Club Resort.  It's a nice one because it's off the beaten path and I feel like because it's less busy the characters spend more time at your table. 

    I hope this helps get your started planning your vacation, I could really go on and on but only have so much room.  I'd love for your to come back and ask me any specific questions you may have.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
