    Hi, I am planning my first trip to WDW with my husband + 8 + 10 year old boys in late August. Can you give me some tips on how to choose which parks to visit and when so I can use our fast passes? When do all the events get listed so I can choose? Thanks

    Hello Sharon and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where I'm always extra happy to help a fellow Guest from the United Kingdom with their families jolly holiday plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort and this is especially so when it's for their 1st ever trip!
    I love the planning part of my own Disney holidays as it seems to bring the magic a little closer, so my top tip for you is be sure to create a My Disney Experience account and then link it to your UK exclusive Ultimate Tickets which will enable making FastPass+ selections up to 60 days ahead of arrival - for Guests who are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or 30 days ahead of time for Guests visiting from elsewhere.
    To further assist with planning you'll find lots of Disney Theme Park scheduling information via this Park Hours & Calendars link which currently (as I type) includes dates up until mid-August.
    This yEar is all set to be an Incredible Summer at Walt Disney World Resort so your already booked late August holiday should be extra magical indeed!  Especially with the brand new Toy Story Land Opening on June 30th 2018 taking your 2 boys to infinity and beyond and with this in mind I would absolutely recommend scheduling in lots of time at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
