    HI there! I am taking my 2 and 4 year old for two days only and we were planning magic kingdom and hollywood studios. They love Disney jr, anna and elsa, and the princesses. Now, I am hearing maybe we should go to epcot. Suggestions or experiences?

    Hi Kayla!

    It's so exciting to see you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in a few short weeks!

    Based on the interests of your kiddos, it does sound like Epcot has oodles they would love! If you have a Park Hopper option on your theme park tickets, I encourage you to consider hopping over to Epcot as well.

    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is fabulous! It's a very popular restaurant but if you can find an available time to fit into your plan, I highly recommend it! You and your kiddos will enjoy a lovely meal in a medieval castle as Disney Princesses and Friends mingle with Guests to give autographs and pose for pictures. Some of the Disney Princesses you can expect to meet include: Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Princess Aurora and Ariel.

    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is located in the Norway Pavilion, which is perfect because there are two other stops I recommend when you are there.

    Character Experience:  Meet Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus - you and your kiddos will love making your way through Elsa & Anna's summer cabin. The best part will be a warm hug and photo opportunity with the sisters. This is one of my favorite Character Experiences. It's absolutely charming and of course, Elsa & Anna are always delightful!

    AttractionFrozen Ever After - while aboard an ancient Nordic vessel, you will take a musical tour of Frozen's wintery world. This attraction is 100% enchanting! Your Elsa & Anna loving kiddos will be mesmerized. From a mom view - at one point on the boat ride you do go backwards and then plunge forward down a short waterfall. You may get a bit wet. My oldest was not particularly elated with this on our first journey but she loved the attraction none the less. This attraction is extremely popular and FastPass+ is recommended if possible.

    While you are in the World Showcase, you will have oodles of opportunities to meet several Disney Princesses. Be sure to check your My Disney Experience mobile app for Character Experience times.

    While my final suggestion has nothing to do with Disney Princesses or Disney Junior, The Seas with Nemo & Friends was one of my kiddos' favorite attractions when they were your kiddos' ages. They had a fin-tastic time aboard the "clamobile" visiting Nemo and his friends. When the underwater adventure ended, we would spend hours inside the aquarium. The 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium is massive and I think my kids looked at everything. They were fascinated by everything. Plus - it was a mom win as they learned while they played!

    Regardless of how you plan your days at Walt Disney World Resort, I know you are going to love every magical moment with your kiddos. I wish you a vacation filled with fun and pixie-dust!
