    Ok we are coming to WDW for the first time. Mom/Dad 3 girls age 20, 12 and 5. staying at the Fort Wilderness Campgrd. The girls want to go to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. 4 day/5nght stay. Can you recommend Activities/Schedule

    Hi Karlin!

    This is a great question!  With 4 full days at Walt Disney World, I would recommend the following:
    • Day 1:  Epcot
    • Day 2:  Magic Kingdom
    • Day 3:  Disney's Hollywood Studios
    • Day 4:  Disney's Animal Kingdom or Magic Kingdom

    The Magic Kingdom is the crown jewel of the Walt Disney World Resort and a favorite of many guests.  Most families can easily spend 2 or more full days in the Magic Kingdom, especially if there is a young child in the family.  However, with four full days you might want to spend one whole day in each theme park.  Disney's Animal Kingdom has a reputation for being a half day park, but one can easily spend a whole day there if you do all of the activities there.  That said, many guests do like to leave in the early afternoon so if you have the Park Hopper option on your Magic Your Way tickets, an option would  be to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom in the morning and then to park hop back to the Magic Kingdom.

    Since you are staying at Fort Wilderness, be sure to make an Advance Dining Reservation (ADR) for breakfast and dinner at Trail's End.  It is a great Table Service restaurant and it is one of the best values in all of Walt Disney World.  I also suggest making an ADR for the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue.  The revue is a lot of fun for the entire family and definitely a "must do", especially since you are staying at Fort Wilderness; most guests have to travel to Fort Wilderness to enjoy it and getting there is not always the most straight forward. 

    Finally, be sure to spend some time exploring and relaxing at Fort Wilderness.  My family and I stayed in a cabin there last August and we all absolutely loved it!
