    I'm planning to visit with my 17 and 10 yo girls. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the planning and everything there is to do. we will be there 5 days but I feel that's not enough time for all 4 parks. Any ideas on how to squeeze everything in

    Hi Yohana!

    There is so much to experience at Walt Disney World Resort that no one can ever see everything on a single visit. I think the best way to get the most out of each day at Walt Disney World Resort is using using the FastPass+ system. This will allow you and your family to make reservations in advance for three attractions or entertainment events. When you redeem FastPass+ reservations for attractions, you will be able to bypass the Standby queue and use the FastPass+ queue to enjoy the attraction, which is usually significantly shorter than the Standby queue. This will allow you to minimize the time you spend during your day in queues and maximize your time playing in the parks. You can begin making your FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Otherwise, your FastPass+ reservation window will begin 30 days in advance. Since FastPass+ availability is limited, I recommend you make your reservations as soon as possible!

    I always think it's a good idea for every member of the family to make a "must-do" list of attractions and entertainment that they would like to see during your trip. This will ensure that everyone gets a chance to do all of their favorites and will be very helpful in selecting which attractions you would like to get FastPass+ reservations for. Since there is so much to experience and enjoy at Walt Disney World Resort, I find that my entire family has a better trip if I know the things each person wants to see and do so we can make them a priority. And don't forget to save some time in your plans to enjoy the Disney magic in the park!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
