    Is it possible to start in one place and make your way around magic kingdom in one day? I only have a 3day park hopper and I want to make sure we see certain princesses and rides. I am just feel soo overwhelmed.

    Hello Cara!

    There are plenty of visitors to Magic Kingdom Park who just come for the day.  It certainly can be done with some good planning!  First, I suggest you download the My Disney Experience app on your smartphone or tablet.  If you prefer, take a look at the Walt Disney World website.  You can find out everything from park hours to dining and attractions and so much more.  There is even a section on My Disney Experience which lists character greeting spots in real time.  Please be sure to book FastPass+ for your favorite "must-see" attractions or experiences.  SInce you want to be sure to make the most of your day, I definitely suggest that you arrive at the Magic Kingdom a good half hour before park opening.  This will give you a jump on the crowds, as many vacationers like to sleep in a bit and arrive after breakfast.  I know there is so much information and it can feel overwhelming.  Once you've zeroed in on the things you must see, feel free to write back with more specific recommendations.  Also, it's okay if you don't see it all.  There are always new things to see.  I have been traveling to Walt Disney World for most of my life and I still haven't seen it all!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  We are always happy to help.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
