    I would just like to know how and when to plan a one-day visit to Magic Kingdom? We already have a room close, but I want to bring my girls for the day while we are close.

    Oh, Shelley! 

    Your girls will have the most magical day feeling like a real-life princess at the Magic Kingdom. 

    You will cry tears of joy seeing their faces when they glimpse Cinderella Castle for the first time. 

    To plan your visit, start by purchasing your theme park tickets. Once your tickets are purchased, link them to your My Disney Experience Account and make your Disney Park Pass system reservation for the day that you wish to visit. Now, reservations are required for entry and they do sell out, so I recommend that you do this as soon as possible. Before you purchase your tickets, check the Availability Calendar to be sure reservations are still available for your day. 

    If you wish to have a sit-down meal, say at Cinderella's Royal Table, reservations are recommended and can be made 60-days in advance. If you do not want to make a reservation, do not worry! There are plenty of quick-service locations to enjoy! 

    Be sure that you download the My Disney Experience Mobile App. This will be a fabulous resource for you to use once you arrive at the park with features like a theme park map and attraction wait times. You can even mobile order your food!

    Shelley, my number one tip is to come back here with any questions that you may have as you plan your magical day. 

    We love to hEAR from you!
