    Hi, I am coming to DisneyLand for the first time with my 6.5 year old Daughter and husband. We are just coming for 1 day (Aug 1) & wondering if you could please provide some suggestions of must sees and dos for a little girls first time in Disney.

    Hello, Meredith! Hooray! I am so incredibly excited that you and your family will be visiting the Disneyland Resort for the first time very soon!

    When you first arrive at Disneyland Park, head straight to City Hall to receive your 1st Visit buttons! This is a fun, and free, souvenir to commemorate your first visits. Next, you will want to ride some of the classic attractions that have been entertaining Guests for more than half a century! My daughter absolutely loves "it's a small world," Mad Tea Party, Peter Pan Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and if your daughter is willing and at least 42" tall, Matterhorn Bobsleds.

    I also think that no visit to the Disneyland Resort for a young girl is complete without meeting some princesses and of course Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Head to Royal Hall in Fantasy Faire to meet up to three different princesses in one location. You might also happen upon a princess or two in the Fantasy Faire courtyard. For Mickey and Minnie, hop on over to Mickey's Toontown. Here, you will get to tour their charming houses and meet them in person.

    Finally, end your day with some spectacular nighttime entertainment. You'll have lots to choose from on August 1st, including Fantasmic!, Main Street Electrical Parade, and the "Remember...Dreams Come True" fireworks.

    One last tip to help maximize your time: download the free Disneyland app. This will tell you current attraction wait times, FASTPASS return times, when and where characters are meeting, and so much more. You can even upgrade to the Disney MaxPass option so you can obtain FASTPASSES quickly and easily on your mobile device.

    Have an absolutely wonderful time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
