Dad and Daughter in front of Cinderella Castle

    Amos from AL Asked

    Hello, I am a single dad with two amazing little girls 3 and 5. I would like to bring them down on Monday, visit the pincess park on Tuesday and depart on Wednesday. I need help its all a little overwhelming attempting to plan this for my daughters.

    Hi Amos, and welcome to planDisney!

    As I read your question, I could feel how much you love your sweet princesses, and how important it is to you that they have a magical time together with you this week. That’s wonderful to see, and your friends at planDisney are here to help!

    Before we get started, I need to let you know that Walt Disney World Resort is operating at reduced capacity due to expanded health and safety protocols. This, combined with spring break crowds, means that the theme parks may not be available this week. All Guests who visit the theme parks must have purchased tickets in advance and made Disney Park Pass reservations. When I look at the online theme park availability calendar for March 23, 2021, there is no availability at any theme park; because this is a live calendar, more availability may appear, but this is not guaranteed. Without a Disney Park Pass reservation, you will not be able to enter a theme park.

    You mention “the princess park” and I think you mean Magic Kingdom Park, with Cinderella Castle in the center. It’s important to note that, while you may see the princesses waving from certain areas in the park, and on the character cavalcades, the princesses are not currently available to meet in the theme parks. I wouldn’t want your princesses to be disappointed, so I want to give you a realistic idea of what to expect.

    If your girls love The Little Mermaid, you could look into staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, where The Little Mermaid standard rooms have so many fun touches, and the Flippin’ Fins pool feels like being “under the sea” with Ariel and friends. You can check Resort Hotel availability online to see which hotels may have space this week, or call (407) 939-1936 and a Cast Member can help with all the details. If you’re not able to get Disney Park Pass reservations, you could plan to have fun at your resort pool, have some Mickey-shaped treats, and some time inside the magic, even if the theme parks aren’t an option this time around.

    If you decide this is too much last-minute planning, I hope you’ll plan a stay for a future date. If you need help planning, an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner can help you with all the details. They are available at no cost to you and can be found by searching online – just be sure to read reviews. My friend Jane has tips for selecting a travel agent, as well as an overview of the planning process, in this helpful answer.

    Here at planDisney, we’re with you every step of the way, and you’re welcome to come back and see us for help planning and dreaming up a magical visit for your princesses. 

    Do as dreamers do,
