    Hi Anita!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! 

    There are so many wonderful activities to do at Walt Disney World! The hard part will be deciding what to do first and what you can fit in! 

    Your eight-year old will absolutely love the character dining experiences. Call 407-WDW-DINE to make your Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) 180 days in advance. 

    If she would like to meet the princesses, I suggest Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot or Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom. You can also meet all of the princesses throughout the parks. At Epcot, you can tour the World Showcase and meet several of the princesses around the world, including Snow White in Germany, Belle and Beast in France and Jasmine in Morocco. 

    If she likes animals, visit Animal Kingdom. There are several opportunities to admire animals, including the Affection Station and Kilimanjaro Safari.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
