    Hi! We just purchased our first annual gold passes and we’re getting ready for our first trip to Disney for our daughters 5th birthday! What are some MUST DO experiences and attractions we should plan for?? We aren’t staying at a Disney resort this trip.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda! And welcome to the magical annual passholder family. I hope this yEAR is filled with pixie dust, magical memories, and more.

    Amanda, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday than with a visit to the most magical place on earth! Your tiny princess is going to have an unforgettable time! 

    To make a celebration extra special for a princess, I would recommend a special birthday meal with her favorite characters! How about a magical meal inside Cinderella Castle? At Cinderella’s Royal Table you can dine with and feel like royalty! If you book this meal as an early breakfast, you can enter the park early and take advantage of that time to capture some stunning pictures in front of Cindrella Castle.

    Before you arrive, be sure to book your FastPass+ for attractions like Peter Pan’s Flight, a favorite of my young princess, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Splash Mountain if she’s adventurous. You can also book a FastPass+ to meet your favorite princesses at the park so you can save time and enjoy even more of the magic!

    And don’t forget to grab a complimentary birthday button as soon as you arrive! Your princess will be showered with happy birthday wishes by Cast Members and guests throughout the day, making her feel extra special. These buttons also alert cast members that you are celebrating, and you never know what pixie dust might find you!

    My space here is limited but I hope these tips help jump start your magical celebration! For additional tips and advice, please do come back and see us again. 

    See ya real soon,
