As a twist to the blog today, I am introducing to you all my daughter Sophie, who is going to share her tips geared to a first time visitor to Disney!  Thanks, we hope you enjoy!

  1. Have fun!
  2. Look for hidden Mickey‘s (a hidden Mickey is a Mickey that is hidden.)
  3. Ride the rides that look fun. (not every thing in Walt Disney World is a ride.)
  4. Try some ice cream snacks (especially the Mickey ice cream bar.)
  5. Always be prepared. (bring the things you’ll need on a vacation.)
  6. Remember to get AUTOGRAPHS. (A signature on some thing safe; like an autograph book.)
  7. Do what ever you want, as long as it’s safe and you have your parent’s permission.

Sophie reminds us all to remember her best tip, which is to have a great vacation at Disney World!
