    Taking our 7 y.o. daughter to WDW Magic Kingdom for just 1 day on 4/11. This is a last minute trip so of course EVERYTHING is booked for a character meals. What is the best way to find the characters for photo ops/interaction? Other advice for 1 day?

    Hi Monica,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. So glad to know that in a few months you will be visiting Magic Kingdom Park. Even if it is for one day, there is no better place.

    There are many opportunities to interact with the characters throughout the day. For many of them you can simply wait in line to take a picture, but you can also Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater, Meet Cinderella and Elena at Princess Fairytale Hall, and Meet Rapunzel and Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall, by booking a FastPass+ up to 30 days in advance. Just be sure to purchase your Theme Park Ticket in advance and Link Your Reservations and Purchases to your My Disney Experience account. You can then book up to three experiences, but once you use them, you may book more, later in the day.

    One last tip: many Guests change their plans up to a few days before their reservations in order to avoid fees. So make sure you download the My Disney Experience mobile app to check for any last minute availability and to see current wait times. Happy planning!
