    We will be taking our 5yr old son and 7 yr old daughter for the first time in Feb & only have a month to plan the trip! We have four days, can you recommend which parks would be best for their ages? Are there must see shows or dining we should reserve

    Hi Andrea!

    Congratulations on your upcoming vacation. February is a beautiful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. I am sure your family is ecstatic about their first trip, so hopefully I can provide you with some recommendations and suggestions to make it even more magical.

    Magic Kingdom Park is definitely a family favorite and we could spend at least two full days there. There are so many attractions and experiences that cater to everyone's style.  Fast rides for the thrill seekers, adventurous rides for the explorers and classic attractions for those with a love and passion for Disney. Plus, there are so many wonderful shows, parades and Character Experiences, your day will absolutely be full of fun! We also adore Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  My kiddos love to see all of the exotic animals, especially on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Also, this park boasts amazing stage shows like Finding Nemo - The Musical and Festival of the Lion King. 

    I also highly recommend at least one Character Dining experience.  They are such a great way to interact with your favorite Disney pals and capture wonderfully candid moments.  We love The Garden Grill Restaurant, the Crystal Palace, Tusker House Restaurant and Cape May Cafe -- just to name a few.

    I hope this helps make planning your Fairy Tale vacation easier, Andrea, but if there is anything else I may assist you with, please don't hesitate in sending me a follow-up question. Have an incredible vacation.

    Magical Wishes,
