    This is our first time to Disney, we are staying in Disney from July 27 - Aug 1. We purchased tickets for four days with the water parks included. Our son is nine and we just want to make the most out of our time at Disney. Help please.

    Your son is going to have an amazing time at Walt Disney World! 

    My best way to ensure that you have an amazing time at Disney is to make a list of your top five "must sees." Plan your trip around those top five and everything else that you do will be a bonus.

    For a nine-year old boy, I suggest the following for your top five:

    1. Visit Disney's Hollywood Studios and ride Toy Story Mania
    2. Watch Wishes fireworks show at Magic Kingdom while eating a hot dog from Casey's Corner on Main Street 
    3. Visit Blizzard Beach and go down the water slides
    4. Make at least one Advanced Dining Reservation at one of the parks or at your resort. If he is into the characters still, try Ohana at Polynesian. He can meet Stitch.
    5. Visit Animal Kingdom and see the animals on Kilimanjaro Safari and ride Expedition Everest
    I hope you have an amazing visit to the most magical place on earth!
