    I only have time to visit one theme park for 1 day. Which theme park is best for my eight year old daughter. she likes rides and is starting to get tired of the princesses

    Hello Naomi,

    Sounds like your daughter is exactly like mine. While she'll always be my Princess Aurora, my daughter is growing up to have the sass and confidence of cowgirl Jessie.

    So I asked her what she would recommend for you and your daughter, and we're both in agreement: you should still go to the Castle and head to the Magic Kingdom.

    With just one day, it's quintessential Disney World. And there's plenty at the Park for a "big girl" to do: Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Jungle Cruise, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Plus, there's a few things like Dumbo and It's a Small World to remind her she can still be a "child" at heart.

    No matter where you choose, I hope you and your daughter have a wonderful time! Enjoy your trip!
