    I'm actually planing a trip for my daughter's 5th birthday in August of 2016. We are staying the 9th-13th. This will be her first time ever going an I haven't been since I was a little girl. What will be some great things to do or see while visiting??

    Hello, Braelyn! Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your excellent question. There are so many new additions to Walt Disney World, and I'm sure that your first visit as a family will also feel like your first visit ever!

    Anyone who's ever thought they'd never be royals clearly has never visited the new Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. Princesses, dwarfs, and beasts alike are all welcome to meet with the royal court at Princess Fairytale Hall, Enchanted Tales With Belle, and Ariel's Grotto. You may even dine in the Beast's enchanted castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant, or take a wild ride through the gem-covered mines at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

    Other favorite classic Disney Characters are just around the corner at Storybook Circus. You can meet 'n' greet Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Donald at Pete's Silly Sideshow and then hop aboard The Barnstormer for an exhilarating ride on a family-friendly coaster. Don't forget to take in some of your favorite childhood rides, like it's a small world and Dumbo the Flying Elephant!

    If you want to be even more immersed in the Disney magic, try one of the many Character Dining locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort. A young princess may enjoy dining with royalty at Cinderella's Royal Table or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, and there are many other places to dine with favorite Disney Characters, too. Make sure you come hungry!

    My daughter is a big Disney Princess fan and for us, no birthday visit is complete without a stop at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. With the help of Fairy Godmothers-in-Training, young girls are transformed into beautiful little princesses.

    I hope that you have a very magical vacation at Walt Disney World, Braelyn! If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me here at the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
