    This is my first trip as a step mom and want to make the most of my vacation with husband and eight year old. We fly in from MN and arrive in Orlando at noon. What park would be the best for this day since it won't be a full day of activities?

    Hi Victoria,

    My first answer is Magic Kingdom! But, I will ask you a couple of questions; do you have park hoppers-are you staying at a Walt Disney World Resort-how many days are you staying?

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, once you arrive at your resort, pick up a Times Guide and see which park has Extra Magic Hours that day. That means that specific park will be open later and you can take advantage of the extra hours.

    I have almost 8yr old twin girls and I they love visiting the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. That is something that will leave a lasting memory if you are able to do it!! You will need to make a reservation 407-WDW-STYLE

    My girls also love character meet and greets-make sure you pick up an autograph book, so your little princess can get all of her favourite characters autographs. Each of the parks have characters available to meet. Check the Times Guide for times/locations.

    My last suggestion is to book character dining if you can. This is a must do for our family! We all love it and it really is a fun and magical experience! Here is the phone number 407 WDW DINE

    If you have any other questions, please ask!
    Wishing you a very magical vacation!
