    Hi! I'm taking my 12 year old niece to WDW for her spring break this April. She's never been before and this is my first trip with a child. Any recommendations on what we should do to make this an exciting and special trip for her?

    Hi Caillie,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited for you and your niece. Even knowing that she is not a little girl anymore, she might want to see some of the princesses. At Princess Fairytale Hall, inside Magic Kingdom, she can visit four of them. Anna, Elsa, Rapunzel and Cinderella. A character meal is always a magical and memorable experience while at WDW. You can read reviews about three of my favorite experiences and talk to her to see which one she will like the most. A breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, breakfast/lunch at Tusker House Restaurant and the famous Chef Mickey’s inside Disney’s Contemporary Resort. She will probably love Beauty and The Beast Live on Stage and For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. At her age, all the major attractions will be a hit and don’t miss wishes and all the parades. See if she can watch some videos at YouTube and read some good reviews at Touring Plans. This will help you both on deciding what to do. Remenber to make all your dinning reservations and use the FastPass+ system.

    Have a magical day!
