    Hey y'all! I'm planning me and my daughter's FIRST EVER TRIP TO DISNEY for spring 2019. (She will be 4) I am having trouble trying to figure out the best park to go to, ideal times to meet characters and where to stay. Please help!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sasha! I am all kinds of excited to know that you will be taking your daughter to visit the Walt Disney World Resort for the very first time!

    I think the Magic Kingdom Park is the perfect place for a first-time visit! Especially if your daughter would like to meet her favorite Disney Princesses. I have two young girls who love visiting Princess Fairytale Hall. Your princess will have the chance to meet Rapunzel, Tiana, Cinderella and Elena of Avalor. Princess Ariel is also in Fantasyland and just a short walk away where you can meet her at her grotto! Your daughter will also be able to enjoy most of the attractions at this park.

    The Walt Disney World Resort has lots of options when it comes to resort hotels. My personal favorite for a value resort is Disney’s Pop Century Resort and for a moderate, my family really enjoys staying at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. 

    Sasha, since you’re ahead of the planning game, make a reservation with a Fairy Godmother at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique- Magic Kingdom. There is also another location at Disney Springs for these coveted princess make-overs and they’re so much fun! 

    I hope I’ve given you a few ideas. Since my space is limited for responses, please feel free to send us any and all of your questions! Helping you plan your daughter's first magical trip is a pleasure!
