    My wife and two girls have never been to DisneyWorld. I've been there twice before, but a long time ago (1985, 1995). I just bought a 4-day Theme Park admission, and I want to make the most out of our trip. Are there any other "must do or see?

    Welcome to planDisney, Dennis! Over the last few years, my wife and I have experienced the joy of seeing the magic of Walt Disney World through the young eyes of our children. I have my own adventurous little princess and Walt Disney World is certainly her happy place. There's nothing quite like seeing the smile on her face when she catches that first glimpse of Cinderella Castle. I'm sure you're all in for an enchanting time as a family. 

    Since you have Theme Park tickets for four days, you're going to want to make Park reservations. As it's the 50th Anniversary Celebration, I'd suggest experiencing each Park in all its EARidescent glory. There is a Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar, which will help you see which Parks have availability during your visit. I'd also recommend staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. There are so many incredible benefits to staying on property that'll truly maximize the magic of your vacation. The new (free) Disney Genie service will also help you plan your itinerary, taking into consideration what is important to you and your family. Personally, I'd recommend paying for Disney Genie+ so that you can make Lightning Lane selections and get on more attractions. 

    If you'd like some personal recommendations, make sure you watch both nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment and Harmonious. Here's a tip: for a great viewing spot, watch Harmonious from the Italy pavilion in EPCOT. You're also going to want to ride Star Wars: Rise of the ResistanceRemy's Ratatouille Adventure, and Avatar Flight of Passage. Catch a parade on Main Street, USA, get a family photo in front of Cinderella Castle, treat your taste buds at one of the many amazing restaurants on property. But above all: in the midst of all of the fun and busyness, schedule time to slow down and enjoy the moment.

    Dennis, if you have any follow-up questions, feel free to reach out to me.
