    I'm bringing my 5 year old niece to WDW on September 13-18. I was wondering if there are any suggestions on how many days I should plan to spend at WDW. What are the top places I should try and make sure she gets to see. This is both of ours first time.

    Hi Sierra! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to hEAR your Disney vacation is just around the corner. How exciting!
    Well, there is a lot to do and see at the Walt Disney World Resort, but if you don’t have many days, I suggest you spend at least three days for Disney Theme Parks. For the first day I encourage you to visit the Magic Kingdom Park. The place is absolutely magical, great attractions, shows, parades and perfect for your niece’s age range. 
    For the second day, I would go to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, my daughter’s favorite park. You will find very nice shows and attractions inspired by Disney and Pixar movies. Also a great opportunity to meet and greet some favorite Disney characters.
    At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, on your third day, you will have the chance to see many animals and spend some time surrounded by nature. Attractions are fun and the shows are beautiful. Make sure you watch Festival of the Lion King, an amazing spectacle.
    If she likes Disney princesses, you can make an appointment for her at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a magical beauty salon where little girls can be transformed into real princesses. An unforgettable experience! Reservations are highly recommended. 
    And to make you day totally magical, don’t forget to buy some Mickey Ears, ask a cast member for a “First Visit” button and take lots of pictures!
    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a wonderful day!
