    I am planning a trip to WDW for my 3yr old daughter and I and having a hard time deciding on a place to stay, would really like something princess themed (any princess will do) And any recommendations on things we should do while we visit would be great!

    I think I have a perfect match: the Royal Guest Rooms at Port Orleans Riverside. These rooms were made to immerse guests in a true princess experience to give them a chance to be royalty themselves. If you click here, you can see some more information on these amazing rooms that just opened this month.

    To help with planning, a good place to start is by looking over the Magical Beginnings Guide, which highlights attractions geared toward the younger guests. Just an fyi, Toontown is currently closed at the Magic Kingdom. You may also want to take a look at It is a website that offers over 100 researched itineraries to help guests make the most of their days at the parks while seeing the must-sees. Many of the plans are geared for guests with young children. There is a small fee for this, but one that I think is worthwhile.

    Also, you may want to consider character dining as a great way to interact with favorite Disney characters. The characters come to you rather than waiting in line to see them. You can begin making reservations 180 days out from your arrival date (Disney guests can make 10 days worth of reservations). Since character dining is quite popular, I'd encourage you to consider making reservations early.

    And of course, we are here to help as you have more questions. Happy planning!
