When you get in trouble and you don’t know right from wrong

Q. When accompanying a 7 year old and 9 year old girls to their first time at Disney World, what is the one attraction we do not want to miss?  We will be going during Spring Break (knowing that is a busy time) the only time the girls are without school and it not being the heat of the summer.

A. Hi Karol!

So, with it being the busy Spring Break season, let me offer you a few tips that I think might help overall, and then we’ll get into the specifics of what attractions I think are not to be missed for a 7 and 9 year old!

First, make sure to make FastPass+ reservations as soon as you possibly can. (Either 60 days prior if staying on-site or 30 days prior if staying off-site.)  Also, make sure to get to the parks early, (like at park opening) so that you’ll be beating the hordes of people who will stroll in at around 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.  Finally, if you can, take breaks in the afternoons.  This will not only allow you to avoid the massive crowds in the peak of the afternoon, but it will also allow you to avoid the heat of the day.  (Because believe it or not, April can get quite toasty at Walt Disney World!)

As for which attractions I think you should make as must-dos, it would be too hard to just give you one…plus, it will depend on if the girls are thrill-seekers or not, so I’m going to break it down, park by park on what I think are the can’t misses.

Magic Kingdom:  Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Princess Fairytale Hall – Meet Anna and Elsa, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Peter Pan’s Flight, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Space Mountain.

Epcot: Soarin and Test Track

Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Midway Mania and Tower of Terror

Disney’s Animal Kingdom:  Kilimanjaro Safaris, Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo-The Musical, and Expedition Everest

Hope these suggestions help and that you have a great trip!
