    HI kara, We are traveling from Omaha to WDW for the first time with 3 girls (7,4,8months) on 5/21-5/28. There is so much to see and do! Would you have any ideas on what to do. Thanks

    Hi fellow Omahan!  
       Since you will be traveling with your princesses, have you made reservations to dine with the Disney princesses?  That is a popular event for many little girls. Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom (the castle!) probably epitomizes the princess dining experience, but it does fill up quickly. A similar option is Princess Storybook dining at Epcot or 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian Resort (fun to visit!). Many girls also like to visit the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for princess makeovers, but these can be costly; feel free to bring your own princess gowns.  
       I'd certainly make visiting each of the 4 parks a priority; they will each offer something for all of you. With traveling with an 8 month old, you can take advantage of the rider swap that is explained here, and there are also Baby Care Centers available if you need a quiet place or baby supplies.  If you have a chance to explore the WDW website, you can see all of the attractions at each of the parks, and I'd make a list of the must sees your family would like to see. I can also help with any specific questions (sorry, space limitations here).  
       Since you will be there a week, don't feel like you need to push yourselves and take time for naps and swim breaks. You may also have fun visiting Downtown Disney for some shopping. Finally, if your tickets include the water parks, those can be a fun visit with plenty of play areas for children.,
