    Planning our first trip to WDW w/ 3 kids (4, 6, & 9). At MK, I want to see Let the Magic Begin at 8:55AM, reservations at BOG at 10AM and BBB at 12:55PM. Is this going to be too much running around? I want to enjoy the trip and not make it stressful.

    Hi, there!

     Oh my goodness, Melissa - I'm so very excited to hear you're planning your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. You and your precious family are sure to have a magical stay!

     I totally understand your concern. There is SO much to see and do at the Walt Disney World Resort! It's really impossible to squeeze it all in during one visit. I feel like I'm always trying to maximize my family's time by including as much as I can in our touring plans while also trying to be mindful of not overdoing it. Shew! 

     I think the plans you currently have for your day at Magic Kingdom Park sound reasonable if you stay in the same area of the park that morning, eliminating some of the "running around." Once Let the Magic Begin is finished, head back to Fantasyland. That first hour of the day is the best time to experience low standby wait times, so get a few attractions in before your breakfast reservation. To save precious time, be sure to pre-order your meal at Be Our Guest Restaurant on My Disney Experience up to 30-days in advance. You should be finished by 11:00 AM, which will give you enough time to experience several more attractions in Fantasyland before your appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. My family always heads back to our Resort hotel for a break in the afternoon, but if that doesn't work with your family's schedule, plan on a bit of downtime at the park. Maybe grab a Quick-Service meal to-go and find a spot to watch the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade! Once everyone is recharged, explore the other lands!

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
