    Hi, I am taking my daughters, 23 & 21, to disney world for the first time in July. Do you think we will need to devote 2 days per park or should we plan on less? Which parks should we concentrate on? Any ideas or advice to make this trip memorable?

    Hi, Stephanie!  A first trip to Walt Disney World sounds like so much fun! 

    If you have the time, I would plan on at least one day for each of the 4 theme parks, and l would allow one or two days at the back end of your trip to revisit one or two parks where you really had a great time or felt there was more for you to see.   In a "perfect world" I would plan as follows:

    -1 day Hollywood Studios
    -1 day Animal Kingdom/Downtown Disney
    -1 or 2 days Magic Kingdom
    -1 or 1.5 days Epcot

    With an "all girls" trip, there are so many great things you can do for some special memories.  How about an afternoon at the spa?  Shopping? How about an amazing dinner at the California Grill in the Contemporary where you will have the best view of Cinderella Castle and the Magic Kingdom fireworks?  Maybe charter a boat for an Illuminations Cruise in Epcot?  Or sprinkle your room with a pixie dusted delivery from the Disney Florist?  Or, how about a private photo session to remember your magical vacation? 

    If any of these ideas sound fun and you want details or you need dining recommendations, click HERE and let me know how I can help you make some more detailed plans!  Plan at least one day per park, take tons of pictures, and enjoy every minute of your WDW vacation with your 2 princesses!   Enjoy!
