    Hi, We are visiting Oct 22-29th and this is our first time @ WDW with our 4.5 yr old daughter. I am completely lost. Where do we begin? Princesses being her fav I think we need the most time in MK and we would like to know more about the extra hours esp.

    Hi, Sriram!

    Not to worry! All of us on the Disney Parks Moms Panel felt just like you do when we were planning our first trips to Walt Disney World. We can help!

    First, if your princess loves Princesses, you must begin your trip with a visit to Magic Kingdom. There, you'll find Princess Fairytale Hall, where you can meet Cinderella and Rapunzel; be sure to have your camera ready!

    If you have a smart phone, be sure to download the free app My Disney Experience, which includes a handy character greeting location and time feature; you'll be able to locate your favorites no matter where you are in the parks. (You can see this same information on the Times Guide, which is available at various locations throughout the parks.)

    Over at Epcot's Norway Pavilion, consider booking a meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, where you'll find six of your favorite Princesses! There's also 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Choose between Supercalifragilistic Breakfast or Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner, both of which would make your little one smile.

    Extra Magic Hours enable WDW Resort hotel Guests to enter one designated park one hour early or several hours after regular park close. We've found that the morning Extra Magic Hour works beautifully when we travel with early risers and the evening hours are great for night owls.

    Send more questions as you think of them, Sriram; we love to help!
