    Hi there!, We will be coming to WDW with 10-12 adults and 2-3 kids any tips? It's a surprise for everyone.

    Hi WhitneyMarie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What a surprise! 

    Let me start with some essentials for planning. First, if you require accommodations, I hope you have already booked a vacation package. If you all are only doing a day trip and have not already purchased your theme park tickets, I do advise that you purchase those at least 31 days in advance and link them in My Disney Experience. At 30 days prior to your visit, you can make Fast Pass+ selections for attractions. Fast Pass+ saves us hours of time in attraction lines. If you all would like to do any character dining experiences, you need to make advanced dining reservations

    We always make our initial three Fast Pass+ selections in the morning and then we make an additional Fast Pass+ for some time after lunch. We use the My Disney Experience Mobile app to track our Fast Pass+ and dining plans. As you plan your visit, be sure to check the park hours and note any Extra Magic Hours if you will be a resort hotel guest. Check the attractions list for height requirements to know which rides the little ones can enjoy. And, finally, check the list of character experiences to make sure you visit with some of your little ones' favorite friends!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
