    Hello, Stacy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Woo Hoo!  I am so excited to help you plan your very FIRST Walt Disney World vacation!  Your family is going to have an UNFORGETTABLE time!

    Based on your question, I recommend choosing Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom rather than choosing a day where FastPass+ reservations are available for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  Since this is your first time to Walt Disney World, you want to experience Magic Kingdom for the longest period of time.  The greatest thing is that I believe you can enjoy longer park hours AND experience Seven Dwarfs Mine Train all in the same day without wasting a ton of time in lines!

    Here is your plan:  Arrive at Magic Kingdom before the park opens.  When the park opens to guests, go straight to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train first thing!  The line will be shorter, so you won't waste 90 to 120 minutes in line during the busiest parts of the day! 

    If you have other questions, please do not hesitate to ask!  We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
