    Need help planning park days/rides/times etc for upcoming trip. I’m overwhelmed! I already have parks booked and food reservations, My husband and I have a 6 yr old, 11 year old who is in a full knee brace and wheelchair and a 17 year old.

    Hi Katie, I'm so glad you asked us your question at planDisney. I hope I can help you today to embrace the magic of Walt Disney World. I see you are really close to starting your trip, and it sounds like you are already doing great by having your Park Pass and dining reservations made! 

    Next up, I recommend taking a look at the online resources available ahead of your trip and thinking about some must-dos. Perhaps each family member can choose one must-do for each day. Be that a snack, ride, or show. It will help you to filter out some of the noise and focus on achieving what really matters to your family. It also helps to free up space and time to enjoy Walt Disney World and its Imagineering feats without stressing about ticking off someone else checklist! My perfect Magic Kingdom Park morning would be to first ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, then create a customized popcorn snack at Main Street Confectionery to munch while watching the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, followed by lunch at The Crystal Palace with Winnie and his pals. Take some time to think about how your family's perfect morning may look.

    As your 11-year-old is dependent on a wheelchair right now, you may like to consider using the Disability Access Service. There is even an option to preregister, and this service may alleviate some mobility concerns for your family.  

    Your My Disney Experience App will become your greatest ally at Walt Disney World. You can access all of your existing plans, check out up-to-date wait times, and much more using the app, so it's worth familiarising yourself before arriving. 

    Please relax knowing that there is simply no completing Walt Disney World. There is always more to see, taste, and ride, so embrace the moments with your family and soak up the enchantment right where you are! 

    Katie, please let me know if you have any further questions, and enjoy the best time with your family. YOU are the magic! Louise.
