    I am a single mom, leaving in 15 days for me and my daughter's first visit to WDW (she's 7). We are staying All Star Pop. Any tips or hints would be appreciated. Thanks

    You and your daughter are going to have so much fun. I would begin by visiting the Magic Kingdom. Start with a trip to City Hall on Main Street U.S.A. Go inside and get your 1st Time Visit Celebration Pin. From there head across the street to the Town Square Theater to meet the big cheese himself, Mickey Mouse. He will meet with you, pose for a photo, sign an autograph and give a big hug. It's a great way to start the day. From there take one of the antique vehicles up Main Street. We love the antique fire engine. Now it's time for some attractions! My girls are 9 and 7 and they love adventure rides. They cannot get enough of Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain and the Haunted Mansion. You must take a trip on the classic Jungle Cruise also. She might enjoy exploring Tom Sawyer's Island too. I used to love that place as a kid and my girls enjoy exploring the many caves and cool areas. At night make sure to get a nice comfy spot for the both of you to enjoy watching Wishes. This fireworks spectacular is a great family show. These are just a few of the many magical adventures awaiting you and your princess at the Happiest Place on Earth. I have many more great ideas about fun ideas at other parks so feel free to ask away. Have a great time at the parks.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
