We are planning our 8yo's first trip to WDW this fall/winter. Anyone have any tips? Recommendations? Must-sees? Warnings?

I want to hear it all!  Thanks in advance!! xoxo

My tip is one I have heard my dad tell. The first time I went to WDW I was 8 and my brother was 6. My dad said that the first day about half way through the afternoon my brother and I were really starting to drag. We stopped in one of the little shops and my parents got us each a little Micky and Minnie figure. He said that perked us both back up. After that my parents had a few things in their bag to help keep us from getting tired of standing in lines.
Tip is to have some little things that can keep your 8yo occupied when standing in lines.

Contrairement à vous, je ne suis jamais allée à Disneyworld. J'ai vu des centaines de photos et ça donne le goût aux petits et aussi aux grands d'aller faire son tour. Il faut prévoir plusieurs jours, y paraît qu'on ne peut pas tout voir.

I went to Disney , the best one I can recommend is the dinosaur ride , I forgot the name sorry but that one will be a great one. Unexpected dinosaur pop out , it's like a roller coaster tour

I was in my early 20's before I traveled to Disney for the first time. However, I did go with my nieces and nephew (Ages 5-7). Here's some tips I've discovered;
1.Take water and snacks with you!!
2. If you don't want to get wet, ponchos are great.
3. If you find that it is way too hot they have misting fans. They are wonderful.
4. If you're interested in the meet and greet with characters for pictures and autographs Animal Kingdom was the best.
5. We did character dining a couple different times and we enjoyed the breakfast the most!
6. I've seen on other sites that people buy most of their Disney items outside of Disney before they go. So it may be neat to have a surprise backpack full of the necessity's for your child.


If you have any questions or what to know more just ask. I hope to visit there again sometime in the future!

what I heard on May 14, 2016 @ 03:58 am

I heard there was long wait times. I heard the characters were only out at scheduled times a couple times a day. Cinderellas castle is just basically a tunnelling you walk through, you can't go in. And if you have kids waiting for the fireworks they are on late .there are some kind of passes that let you skip the wait line .but this only happens at designated time.

If the weather is a bit cool and even rainy...still go! The park will be so much more quiet. We went to Animal Kingdom on a cooler day that rained on and off and we had no waits for any rides and there was hardly any people around. We could actually just get off a ride and go right back on it if we wanted to, it was great!
