    Planning our first trip to WDW - my boys will be 7 and 4.5. What "must do" things do I need to be sure to do with my boys (There's so much to consider and research. We got 5 day park hopper tickets.

    Greetings Erin, 

    I hope you are having a wonderful time planning your family's first Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Hooray! You are right, there is a ton to see and do, but don't worry, it's what makes returning for Disney vacations so fun--there is always something new to experience. 

    My boys both love The Pirates League in Magic Kingdom Park. In this video, Disney Mom Jackie shares just what swashbucklin' fun this adventure holds for your little pirates. Another favorite of theirs is the Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy at Disney's Hollywood Studios. My little padawans adore learning the way of the Force and battling the evil Darth Vader. Not every activity has to be a huge experience. I'd plan a Character Dining Experience or two for some great character interactions and precious photo opportunities and then, just choose your FastPass+ selections based on what you think they will adore. The best parts of any Disney vacation are all the family memories you will be making together, so make sure to leave plenty of time for unplanned and unscripted magic. 

    These are just a few ideas, so please let me know if there is anything else I am able to assist you with. Have a wonderful vacation, Erin.

    Magical Wishes,
