    Thank you for your help thus far. I wanted to know what is the Disney Magical Family and is it for every park?

    Hello, Shelly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question concerning your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    I can tell you one of my MOST MAGICAL experiences at Walt Disney World was when my family was chosen as the Disney First Family of the Day at Magic Kingdom!  We were whisked inside to ride the fire truck down Main Street USA and take pictures by Cinderella Castle.  We then were taken to the train station located at the Magic Kingdom Park entrance to greet all of the guests entering Magic Kingdom at the rope drop after the train carrying many Disney characters waved to everyone!  IT WAS INCREDIBLE!

    There is a Disney First Family of the Day at each Disney Theme Park!  Here are some tips to be chosen for this special honor!

    1.  Get to the Disney Theme Park early!  I recommend getting there at LEAST 45 minutes early to be one of the first people in line.

    2.  Speak to the Cast Members!  Be friendly and animated to all of the Cast Members because you never know who might be choosing the First Family that morning.

    3.  Dress like you LOVE Disney!  Wearing matching shirts is a HUGE plus to make your family stand out in the crowd!

    If you have other questions, please let us know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
