    First time going to Walt Disney in FL in April. April 4-9-20 till 4-11-20. What parks to see with a 7 year old girl, info on speed pass and places to eat,

    Hi Kevin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and congratulations on your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I am also planning an April visit with my 8-year-old daughter, and I must warn you: there is a very strong chance that you will be bitten by the Disney bug! Since you are coming for a short visit, I highly recommend prioritizing Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. These are definitely my girl’s current favorite theme parks.

    Magic Kingdom Park is a must-do! A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is not complete without experiencing Happily Ever After fireworks in front of Cinderella Castle. This iconic park offers some of my daughter’s favorite attractions such as Splash Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain. She is a thrill seeker but also loves the meet and greet opportunities with the Disney Princesses, and attractions like Enchanted Tales with Belle and Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid. If you are looking for character dining, check out The Crystal Palace or the amazing Cinderella’s Royal Table. Our favorite quick-service locations are Columbia Harbour House and Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe.

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios is where you will find thrill rides like Rock ‘n Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, but my daughter loves this park because of Toy Story Land and its great attractions like Toy Story Mania and Slinky Dog Dash. We are also Star Wars fans so if the Force is strong with your youngling this is the place to be now that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is open. I highly recommend making reservations at my girl’s favorite restaurant, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. She loves their milk shakes and having her meal in one of the vintage cars. This is also a great place to escape the midday heat.

    Enjoying a day at the theme parks is easier with FastPass+. With this service, included with your tickets, you can select a special time in advance to experience up to three attractions at a theme park for each day of your trip. FastPass+ planning is available 30 days ahead of your visit or up to 60 days prior to your check-in date when staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Being our Guest allows you not only to enjoy early access to FastPass+ planning, but also access to many other benefits.

    I hope this helps you as you start planning, Kevin. Please stop by real soon with more questions, we are delighted to help!
