    It will be my 7 year old daughter 1st trip to DW what should I do and plan..

    Hi Demetris,

    I'm SO EXCITED for your daughter to experience her first visit to the most magical place on earth!

    First, I see that your visit is in just a couple of weeks! If you haven't already, I'd make your Resort hotel reservations and purchase your tickets. Once your tickets are purchased and linked to your My Disney Experience account, you'll want to make three FastPass+ selections per day where you'll be able to skip the standby lines, allowing you more time for even MORE magic and fun!

    I'd definitely encourage you to spend a day at Magic Kingdom Park. You and your princess will love stepping into some of the most beloved stories, meeting favorite characters, laughing on exciting attractions, and being all caught up in the magic during the Festival of Fantasy Parade. I'd definitely encourage you to end your day with the spectacular Happily Ever After nighttime celebration. Be sure to introduce her to some of the best parts about a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort...the food! Mickey pretzels, Mickey ice cream bars, popcorn, Dole Whips, fresh fruit waffle sandwiches from Sleepy Hollow...mmm, my list could go on and on! Don't forget that there's lots of magic at the other three theme parks, too, as well as amazing shopping and dining at Disney Springs! If you can, hop on over to Disney's Animal Kingdom to experience Pandora - The World of Avatar. It's incredible! Avatar Flight of Passage is my favorite attraction throughout the entire Walt Disney World Resort, and you will LOVE the experience of flying on the back of a banshee!

    Be sure to watch the video below for more tips, Demetris, but most importantly, just soak up every moment together as you make memories to last a lifetime. Have a truly magical vacation!
