    Hi Kaitlyn!

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel. There's a myth that you can't have a magical time at Walt Disney World if you plan last minute. That's definitely not true! There are a few things that you will want to take care of right away when planning your vacation, and it's my pleasure to help you figure out those magical must-dos. Here are a few tips:

    Make your FastPass+ selections as soon as you book. Each park has attractions, shows, and other experiences that are perfect for you and your precious 3 year old, but you'll want to make those FastPass+ selections as soon as you can. Here is a quick list of attractions and shows that you want to select for your family:

    Magic Kingdom Park: Peter Pan's Flight, Festival of Fantasy Parade, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party, Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater (a family favorite!), Enchanted Tales with Belle, Wishes nighttime spectacular.

    Epcot: Turtle Talk with Crush, Epcot Character Spot, IllumiNations - Reflections of Earth.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Mania, Disney Junior - Live on Stage!, Muppet*Vision 3-D, Fantasmic!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom: Kilimanjaro Safaris, Finding Nemo - The Musical, Festival of the Lion King.

    For advice on dining, take a peek at what my fellow panelist Leanne has to say: Dining Options for Little Ones.

    For even more helpful advice, check out the Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones page on the Walt Disney World Website. There are plenty of helpful tips, and even a Kid-sized vacation package featured in the top left.

    I hope this helps you, Kaitlyn. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask us anytime.
