    I am wondering how to give my daughter a bit of the disney experience without going inside the park. She is so very young we want to wait until she will remember it but at the same time loves Minnie Mouse. Low budget ideas???

    Hello there, Samantha!

    I LOVE that you want to share the magic with your daughter but wait until she can remember that first enchanted walk down Main Street U.S.A. to Cinderella Castle!  With so much to do around all of the Walt Disney World property, you CAN sprinkle a little pixie dust on your daughter without theme park tickets.

    Since Minnie Mouse has stolen your princess' heart, I would suggest taking her to one of the character dining experiences at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  Specifically, Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Café which is located at Disney's Beach Club Resort.  This breakfast party would give your daughter the opportunity to get an autograph and picture with Minnie Mouse and all of her friends.  Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is another great option to experience a little Disney Magic and meet with her favorite Disney pals.  Character appearances are subject to change.  

    Touring the resort hotels is another great way to enjoy Disney and does not cost a dime!  Day guests enjoy complimentary self-parking at resorts.  Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a great place to visit to see the beautiful theming and watch the animals on the savannah.  You could also visit Disney's BoardWalk Inn and spend some time strolling dock side at Disney's BoardWalk.

    Finally, Disney Springs offers shopping, magical experiences, a lot of great food and even princess transformations at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!  Don't miss the biggest and best Disney store I know, World of Disney, when shopping here.

    I hope you enjoy making magical memories with your daughter!  Visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel again if you need any additional ideas to create a practically perfect day with your princess.

    See ya real soon!  Angie
