    I am planning our family’s first trip to WDW over the 2013 Thanksgiving holiday.We will be using the Park Hopper tickets and Dining Plan.Our kids will be 6(m), 5(f) and 3(f) wondering what the “must sees" and "must dos” are for their age?

    Hi Angel,


    How wonderful you will take your first trip to Walt Disney World!  It is such a magical adventure that you are undertaking, and we are here to help you!  You must visit Magic Kingdom.  I would actually schedule a couple of days to visit this park.  There is so much to see and do.  The new Fantasyland is just amazing!  I would also recommend making your Advanced Dining Reservations which can be done 180 days prior to your vacation.  I would highly recommend the Crystal Palace to have a meal with Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet as well as the new Be Our Guest restaurant.  Your girls will love becoming princesses at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at either the Magic Kingdom or Downtown Disney!  It is such a fun experience.   Animal Kingdom has wonderful things for kids to do as well.  I would visit Conservation Station where they will get to interact and pet small animals.  The Boneyard there is a huge playground which is just fantastic, and my girls still love it there and they are eight and twelve!  The Finding Nemo-The Musical show and The Lion King show are just amazing and so much fun for kids of all ages!  Hollywood Studios have a Beauty and the Beast show as well as a Bug's Life playground which is fantastic!  You will find something for your little ones at every park you go to, Angel.  I am running out of room and still have so much to tell you.  Please send me another question if you would like further help!  Have a magical vacation!
