    Planning our 3rd visit for next January. My daughter will be 8 years old. Any MUST DO activities that you recommend??

    Hi Marisha!

    Since you've been to Walt Disney World a few times, I'll suggest a few new things and some perennial favorites!

    First up, Fantasyland is open! The new expansion of this area of the park has already added Enchanted Tales with Belle, an interactive story-telling experience that she should definitely volunteer to be involved with, Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid, and an incredibly unique restaurant: Be Our Guest. All of these are definite must-do's especially if your daughter is princess fan!

    Next up, if your daughter likes a little bit of a thrill, Test Track might be a great stop in Epcot. Its been newly re-imagined and updated and definitely worth a ride or TWO!

    Last, but not least, no trip is complete without a character meal. Breakfast with Pooh at the Crystal Palace has always been one of my family's favorite dining events. We try to make the first reservation of the day so that we can enter a nearly deserted park. Taking her photo in front of Cinderella's Castle with a completely empty park would be priceless!

    Hope this helps! If you have any other questions or would like more help planning your trip please let me and the Moms know - we LOVE to help plan trips!
