    I am planning a trip next month w/ my 7 year old daughter. What are some recommended rides/parks and is dining with characters recommended? I think she's going to be overall excited with or without dining with characters. Looking to minimize stress

    Hi Kathy! Visiting Walt Disney World Resort and seeing it through the eyes of your 7 year old Princess will be so magical!

    We enjoy Disney Character Dining but if you feel she would be better suited meeting her favorite Disney Characters outside of the restaurants, you will have ample opportunities for Character Experiences. There are many you can visit using FastPass+ if seeing a certain Character is an absolute must do for her.

    When choosing theme parks to visit, there are attractions at all that I know she will love but Magic Kingdom Park is a must do. There are so many timeless classics you will both enjoy. Enchanted Tales with Belle is, well...enchanted. Guests are transported to Beast's library and then get to share moments with Belle. Some of the Guests are selected to play a part in her story. It's a really special attraction and your daughter will have an opportunity to have her picture taken with Belle when the story concludes.

    There are so many wonderful attractions I can't name them all. If your vacation is not a surprise for your daughter, I would suggest that the two of you visit the Walt Disney World Resort website together and let her view the attractions. You can narrow the selections by theme park, thrill level, age, etc. It's a really great tool when planning.

    I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that my daughter's favorite theme park is Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. She loves seeing and learning about all of the amazing animals.

    There are no words to express how excited I am for you and your daughter. I love that you are sharing this gift with her! Enjoy every magical moment!
