    Going to WDW for my daughter's 7th birthday. It will be our first time at WDW and we are staying on a property. What should I do to make this trip memorable? Where is the best place to see fire works? I have tickets for all parks including water?

    Hi, Mechelle!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are planning your first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!  Add in a birthday celebration, and you've got a vacation that is practically perfect in every way!  To get ready for your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, I would first recommend doing a little resEARch on the Walt Disney World website to create a list of your must-do attractions, entertainment, and dining experiences.  Don't forget to make your dining reservations 180 days before your arrival at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Also, you will want to make your FastPass+ selections in advance.  As a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days before you arrive.

    Since you will be celebrating your daughter's birthday during your vacation, I would recommend taking a look at the special in-room celebrations offered by Disney Floral & Gifts.  You can also check out the Enchanting Extras Collection for some additional ways to add a bit of extra pixie dust to your daughter's special day.

    Of all the nighttime spectaculars at the Walt Disney World theme parks, the Happily Ever After Fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park are my favorite.  I would highly recommend booking the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing.  What could be better than combining sweet treats with breathtaking fireworks views?  In my opinion, the Plaza Gardens offer the perfect view of the Happily Ever After fireworks.  A dessert party would be a wonderful way to celebrate your daughter's birthday.

    I'm sure that your family is going to make many magical memories on this vacation.  Be sure to purchase Memory Maker for unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass Service pictures so that you can relive those memories for yEARs to come.
