    I am wanting to plan the most perfect trip for my 6 year old Princess! I have been to Florida but this is our first time to Disney and I don't want to miss a thing! Help me plan the perfect trip please

    Hi, Karyssa!

    A first trip to Walt Disney World is so special; let's get planning!

    First, look at this very helpful link, Planning Your First Trip to Walt Disney World Resort. It's full of great tips!

    Next: dining options. Would your daughter like to dine with princesses? Would she like to meet Mickey Mouse? Are Cinderella and Prince Charming on her list of favorites? If so, character dining should be a great place to begin. You'll enjoy fabulous meals while relaxing, PLUS, your character interactions here will give you time to do something else while out in the parks. Plan your dining experiences according to your other plans, too. We like to visit Magic Kingdom Park first each trip, so we'll dine there or at a nearby restaurant such as Chef Mickey's. On a day when we plan to head back to our resort to swim, we might have dinner at our hotel or head back out to shop and dine at Disney Springs.

    Next: which attractions are top on your daughter's list to experience? Prioritize her favorites in each park so that when your FastPass+ window opens (30 days prior to arrival if you have a park ticket confirmation #; 60 days if you also have a WDW resort hotel reservation #), you'll be ready to select three attractions in one park for each day.

    Send more questions as you plan, Karyssa; we love to help!
