    We are planning our first trip to Disney World. My oldest daughter will be 8 years old. She already makes comments about characters only being people dressed up and I am constantly contradicting her. What can I do to make her first trip magical? Thank you!

    Hi Holly,

    I think once you arrive, the magic of Walt Disney World will take over!  When you see the characters, meet them and interact with them, it changes your perspective.  I think if your daughter meets one of the princesses she will have a renewed faith!  The characters truly come to life!!  Their mannerisms, the way they wave or speak even their signatures!!!!  I love meeting the characters, it is a must do each and every time we go to Walt Disney World.

    I am sure your daughter has a favourite character, I would check the Times Guide once you arrive to see where and when the characters will be meeting their fans.

    Your first trip will leave you and your entire family with a lifetime of memories!

    The magic is everywhere, you can't help but feel it when you are there!!

    Have a fantastic time!!!!
