    I'm taking my girls to Disney for the first time in August. My girls are 51/2 and 3. We are only there for 3 1/2 days What are the most recommended things to do for girls that age? What is the magic band and fast pass plu

    Hi there Janine,

    I think your daughters will have a blast exploring the Walt Disney World theme parks, especially the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios.  If your daughters are into princesses, you'll definitely want to look into an extra special character dining experience featuring delicious food and some one on one time with some of Disney's most beloved leading ladies.  My daughter just turned six and her favorites have always been Cinderella's Royal Table, located inside of Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom and Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot.  You can even enhance these experiences by arranging a royal makeover for your little princesses at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!

    As far as attractions are concerned, you'll definitely want to devote a great deal of time to Fantasyland and the recently opened New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.  Here, your little ones will be able to "ride" through their favorite, classic Disney films including Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo, and more.  They can even take part in a stage show with Belle, herself and how does dining inside of Beast's Castle Sound!?  Check out Be Our Guest Restaurant for all of the dazzling details!

    Anticipation has been building as details of Magic Bands and FastPass+ are emerging.  As of now, announcements and concrete dates and details are still forthcoming, so be sure to keep an eye on the official Disney Parks Blog for any updates.  I'm all out of room, but I have lots more ideas, so please feel free to write back!
